Drone Camera Integrates Hot Thermal Imaging Sensor Tech

FLIR Systems’ noted thermal imaging sensor technology is being integrated into DJI’s Zenmuse XT2 drone camera. The XT2 is DJI’s first dual-sensor gimbal-stabilized camera for commercial drone applications.

 

Built for industrial and public safety applications, the camera includes both a high-definition 4K color video camera and a high-resolution radiometric thermal camera, allowing operators to switch between thermal and visible cameras in flight. It also uses FLIR’s patented MSX technology, or multispectral dynamic imaging, that embosses high-fidelity, visible-light details onto the thermal imagery to enhance image quality and perspective.

The Zenmuse XT2 is compatible with the DJI Matrice 600 and Matrice 200 Series platforms and integrates with DJI’s data transmission technology for live video display. Full integration gives drone operators plug-and-play installation, real-time control, and recording during flight in thermal, visible, or thermal/visible picture-in-picture. This flexibility allows operators to acquire double the data in a single camera and stay focused on mission-critical tasks. To learn more about the Zenmuse XT2 and integrating FLIR thermal sensors.
