FLIR announces the FLIR Duo Pro R dual sensor thermal imaging and mapping system for commercial drones. 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 FLIR Duo Pro R ushers in a new era of imaging capability for a wide range of high-performance commercial, industrial, and public safety drone applications.

Thermal and video camera for drones

The FLIR Duo Pro R allows operators to switch between thermal and video cameras in flight. With the option of a 336×256 or 640×512 thermal resolution sensor and a high-definition 4K colour video camera, the FLIR Duo Pro R uses FLIR’s patented multispectral dynamic imaging, MSX, technology to emboss high-fidelity, visible-light details onto the thermal imagery to improve image quality. Equipped with thermal, visible, and picture-in-picture mode, the Duo Pro R records raw video and stills to two dedicated microSD cards and allows for live digital video output over micro-HDMI and analogue video out for easier integration.

Creating maps and 3D models from an airborne platform

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 onboard 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.”

What are the mainstream uses for thermal cameras?

The high cost of thermal imaging cameras historically made their use more likely in specialised law enforcement and military applications. However, lower pricing of thermal imaging technologies has opened up a new and expanding market for thermal cameras in the mainstream. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the new opportunities for thermal cameras in mainstream physical security?
