Cut Through the Fog!
Forgive me as I take a moment to brag about one of my children. As many of you know, I have five kids, and recently my youngest, Parker, a physicist, published her first professional paper. It has a formidable title; “Statistical Approach to Electro-Optic and Infrared Transmission Within The Atmosphere Through Empirical Cumulative Distributions via Modeling, Simulation, and Data on a Global Scale.” Feel free to read the whole article here. Parker’s study on thermal imaging systems found that their effectiveness is compromised during poor weather conditions.
It’s quite ironic that Parker has been working with thermal imaging systems and examining the different types of conditions that can impair its use in 2023. During my time with the 1/41st Infantry Battalion, 2nd Armored Division, I was privileged to serve in the first operational Battalion to receive the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. This vehicle included a state-of-the-art Raytheon ISU (Integrated Sight Unit) that offered thermal imaging to acquire and destroy enemy vehicles. We quickly learned that the state of the art didn’t always work as advertised, yet it was better than what we had before. With the thermal imaging system, you could, depending on the conditions seen at night through fog and smoke, acquire targets to take out the bad guys.
So what does Parker’s work as a physicist have to do with my legal problems? Actually, it doesn’t, but it does. Seeing clearly through the fog of the different areas of our legal system is what I do with my team. The law is vast and sometimes it’s confusing, unclear, and downright impossible to understand the direction when things seem so unduly complicated. We don’t have a thermal imaging system, and that wouldn’t work for your legal problems. The fact is, understanding the environment, whether it’s with a thermal imaging system, the government, or the insurance industry bureaucracy, is critical to getting the result you want.
