FLIR and DJI collaborate on commercial drone camera
FLIR and DJI recently announced that they have collaborated for the second time with DJI integrating a FLIR thermal imaging sensor technology into its new DJI Zenmuse XT2 drone camera.The XT2 is DJI’s first dual-sensor and most advanced gimbal-stabilized camera for commercial drone applications. The project, which furthers the collaboration between FLIR® and DJI, also joins the 'Thermal by FLIR’ partner program, which FLIR created to fuel thermal innovation and allow partners to leverage the leadership, quality, and innovation that FLIR’s brand represents in the thermal imaging space.
The new XT2 drone 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. The Zenmuse XT2 also uses FLIR’s patented MSX® technology that embosses high-fidelity, visible-light details onto the thermal imagery to enhance image quality and perspective.
“The arrival of the DJI Zenmuse XT2 with a FLIR sensor signifies an important technological advancement for drone operators who need both a visible camera and the superpower benefits of thermal imaging in one product,” said James Cannon, President and CEO of FLIR. “Now drone operators can capture data without landing, an important advantage for search and rescues operations, monitor the health of mechanical and electrical equipment remotely, and identify potential problems in buildings. Our collaboration with DJI perfectly aligns with our mission to use our thermal technology to help save lives and livelihoods.”
