FLIR and DJI Announce Strategic Collaboration to Enable Commercial Drones With Thermal Imaging Capability
FLIR Thermal Imaging to Be Integrated Into New DJI Zenmuse XT Stabilized Camera
WILSONVILLE, OR--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2015) -
FLIR Systems, Inc. (
Combining DJI's Zenmuse stabilized micro-gimbal technology, which has become a common platform for demanding aerial cinematography, with FLIR's popular Tau 2 thermal imaging camera core, the Zenmuse XT will expand the possibilities for commercial drone operators and infrastructure inspectors. Using FLIR thermal imaging on small drones brings new capabilities to dozens of commercial applications, including search and rescue, firefighting, agriculture, wildlife protection, and the inspection of energy infrastructure, bridges, and buildings.
The addition of thermal imaging provides users the ability to see in complete darkness, measure temperature remotely, and see through obscurants like smoke, dust, and light fog. Zenmuse XT users will have the unique ability to see minute temperature variances -- normally invisible to the naked eye -- that can signify potential problems in buildings, detect the presence of people or animals, and monitor the health of mechanical and electrical equipment remotely. Its integration with DJI's Lightbridge live video downlink system and the DJI GO app will also give drone operators real-time control and recording during flight.
"FLIR and DJI today support many of the same commercial applications," said Andy Teich, President and CEO of FLIR. "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 drone market."
DJI's popular Inspire 1 and Matrice airframes provide industry-leading aerial cinematography and development platforms. The same attributes that set these airframes apart for capturing stunning aerial video -- stable flight performance, predictable flight execution, and seamless integration with the popular DJI Go app -- also make them ideal thermal imaging platforms.
"DJI's collaboration with FLIR in thermal imaging signals our intent to innovate in sectors where technology can be a game-changer," said DJI CEO Frank Wang. "The result will be joint, best-in-class solutions that are intuitive and easy to use."
The Zenmuse XT will be available in early 2016 at both DJI and FLIR dealers. Please visit http://www.dji.com/product/zenmuse-xt to learn more.
