Parrot launches ANAFI Thermal UAS
Parrot has launched ANAFI Thermal, an ultra-compact and lightweight UAS equipped with thermal imaging capabilities for civil operations, the company announced on 16 April.
The new UAS can reach a maximum speed of 34mph and sustain wind speeds of up to 31mph. It is equipped with a built-in 4K HDR camera with a 21-megapixel Sony sensor to capture both live and recorded 4K HD video. The UAS also features a FLIR radiometric thermal-imaging camera with 160x120 resolution and a temperature range of 14°F to 752°F to capture thermal imaging of surfaces and structures.
ANAFI Thermal's gimbal can tilt vertically 90° upward or downward. A 3X digital zoom allows pilots to inspect hard-to-access areas. The UAS’ visible and thermal light spectrum cameras are stabilised on three axes, allowing for sharp videos and clear pictures in any flight conditions.
The ANAFI Thermal UAS can be used to support rescue service, civil security, energy and environmental operations.
