One of the world’s leading thermal imagine design brands Flir has entered the commercial UAV market with the creation of a product that captures thermal imaging and maps.

Featuring a thermal sensor with radiometry, the Flir Duo Pro R gives professional drone operators the range and image detail needed to capture actionable thermal and visible data in a single flight.

The technology enables operators to switch between thermal and video cameras during aerial flight. The Duo Pro R also records raw video and stills to two dedicated microSD cards and allows for live digital video output over micro-HDMI and analog video out for easier integration.

The FLIR Duo Pro R dual sensors create a self-contained airborne mapping package. The fully integrated GPS receiver, Inertial Measuring Unit (IMU), temperature, humidity, and altitude sensors provide an on-board source for high-fidelity, reliable geo-tagging data required to create accurate maps and 3D models from an airborne platform.

“The FLIR Duo Pro R offers class-leading imaging performance and will save drone operators time and effort with the highest quality thermal and visible cameras combined in a single system,” said Jeff Frank, Senior Vice President, Global Product Strategy. “With the ability to select either a thermal or visible camera image in flight, or watch video streams of both simultaneously in picture-in-picture mode, we’re making it easier for drone operators to capture imagery and thermal data from the air.”
