With FLIR’s new Aerial Thermal Imaging Kits, drone-based thermal imaging for Fire Fighters, First Responders, and Building Inspection is more accessible than ever. Each of these packages includes a DJI Inspire 1, Zenmuse XT thermal camera, Zenmuse X3 4K visible light camera, and a variety of accessories bundled together to give you the tools you need to get your airborne thermal imaging program off the ground immediately.
By combining DJI’s unrivaled expertise in flight stability, gimbal technology, and image transmission with the industry-leading thermal imaging technology of FLIR, these are the ultimate solutions for reliable, rapidly-deployable aerial thermal imaging.
When you get right down to it, the main purpose of any drone is to position a sensor in three-dimensional space; when that sensor is a FLIR thermal imager, you expand the possibilities for drone operators and thermal inspectors alike. Using FLIR thermal imaging from small drones brings new capabilities to dozens of applications like search and rescue, the inspection of power lines, cell towers, bridges, substations, and buildings, firefighting, precision agriculture, and natural resource and wildlife protection.
A fast, efficient, yet stable airframe, the Inspire 1 will keep the Zenmuse XT aloft for 22 minutes*, making it ideal for large scale inspections, around active fire scenes, and is especially useful in search and rescue scenarios.
Mount the XT on the Inspire 1, and you can be ready to launch in seconds. This seamless integration gives you access to important features like DJI’s powerful Lightbridge video transmission system, automated Point of Interest, Course and Home Lock, and Follow Me.
*Flight times vary based on flight conditions, with a maximum 22-minute flight time being recorded when hovering with a TB48 battery using the Zenmuse XT gimbal camera.
Available in either 640×512 or 336×256 resolutions, FLIR’s Aerial Thermal Imaging Kits have optimized resolution and optics to make sure you’ll have the right combination of situational awareness, magnification, and area coverage to suit your mission requirements. Plus, there are options for single- and dual-control so you can have a separate operator dedicated to running the camera while another focuses on flying the drone.
Gather calibrated radiometric temperature data quickly and easily, allowing you to cover large substations, as well as transmission and distribution lines in a fraction of the time it would take you with a handheld imager.
Scan large panel installations to isolate and measure potential problem areas with a single look instead of laboriously checking each panel by hand.
Forget about spending hours on a ladder with a hand-held camera, or spending thousands of dollars on a single inspection from a full-sized aircraft. Roof inspections and other building surveys with a thermal camera-equipped drone only take minutes and can be done on your schedule.
Particularly valuable for firefighting, they give Incident Commanders the ability to see through smoke and keep track of their personnel in large fire scenes. They’re also a must-have equipment for rapidly deployed SAR missions regardless of the time of day.
