FLIR Systems teams with DJI Innovations

11th December 2015 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


FLIR Systems has entered into a technology collaboration agreement with UAV manufacturer DJI Innovations, FLIR Systems announced on 10 December. 

The companies intend to develop a joint product, the Zenmuse XT stabilised camera, featuring FLIR's thermal imaging technology integrated with DJI's Inspire 1 and Matrice aerial platforms. 

The Zenmuse XT will combine DJI's Zenmuse stabilised micro-gimbal technology with FLIR's Tau 2 thermal imaging camera core. 

Adding thermal imaging to a small UAS platform will bring new capabilities to various commercial applications, including firefighting, search and rescue, wildlife protection, agriculture, and the inspection of bridges, energy infrastructure, and buildings.

Users will be able to view things in complete darkness, see through obscurants such as dust, smoke, and light fog, and measure temperature remotely. Operators will be identify potential problems in buildings, monitor the health of mechanical and electrical equipment remotely, and detect the presence of people or animals. 

Andy Teich, president and CEO, FLIR, said: ‘FLIR and DJI today support many of the same commercial applications. FLIR is thrilled to work with DJI to deliver these customers a plug-and-play thermal imaging solution for DJI's established ecosystem of unmanned aircraft and related apps while expanding our collective opportunities in the rapidly-growing commercial UAV market.’
