Thermal imaging camera for drones

To create a thermal imaging camera for drones. The thermal imaging camera should be a boon for tasks like spotting fires, search and rescue and measuring the thermal efficiency of homes.

The drone company is already by far the most popular for cinematographers and hobbyists, but we have lately been targeting industrial operations, having recently launched a pesticide-spraying model. The thermal imaging camera could also help farmers monitor crop growth, and would be useful for folks like police, firefighters and building inspectors.

We showed how firefighters who beta-tested the unit were able to see where a fire started, how it’s spreading and whether the roof is likely to be stable. There are two models available with 640 x 512 and 336 x 256 resolutions, both of which can be controlled. Which mount on the drones’ standard gimbals — are sensitive to “better than a tenth of a degree (of temperature).”

Infrared Lenses See The Impossible

Infrared lenses can make it possible to inspect targets that would be challenging to see with a standard IR lens due to their size and distance.

Add-on Infrared lenses are available for Fluke professional and expert series infrared cameras. Lenses for the thermal cameras are smart lenses – which means they don’t require calibration to a specific camera, and they can be interchanged between compatible cameras.

You avoid the hassle of sending in your camera to calibrate to the Infrared lenses, and you can share one Infrared lenses between multiple cameras. All Infrared lenses glass optics are made with 100% diamond-turned germanium covered with an engineered coating, the most efficient available material to transmit energy to the detector.
