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.
