New FLIR Duo Pro R

flir duo Pro R thermal imaging dronesSay hello to the new FLIR Duo™ Pro R aerial thermal imaging system for drone operators across the world.

Prices for the FLIR Duo Pro R thermal imaging system start at $5200 (UK price not known) and we think that will be for the smaller thermal core at 336pix.

The Duo Pro r comes with high grade 4k visual imaging and packed full of great tech, heres a run-off from FLIRs site.

The Pro r comes with two live video output options – analog video, or digital video over micro-HDMI – pilots can switch between thermal and color imagers in flight, or view them both in picture-in-picture mode, and select MSX® blended imagery, all while recording video and stills on two microSD cards.

The on-board sensor suite makes Duo Pro R a self-contained airborne mapping package, coming with a fully integrated GPS receiver, IMU, magnetometer, and barometer that will provide all the data needed to create accurate orthomosaics from an airborne platform without integrating to external flight controllers.

Set thermal imaging color palettes, image optimization features, configure PWM inputs and MAVLink interface, and start recording all without lugging a computer to the field.

Dual-Sensor Imaging

High resolution thermal and 4K color imagers integrated into a single powerful, convenient package.

Multiple Display Options

Select the video source you want – visible, thermal with MSX, or picture-in-picture.

Installation Ready

With a wide power input range of 5-26VDC and ready analog or HDMI digital video outputs, Duo Pro R can be made to fit almost any drone.

Integrated Sensors

Fully integrated GPS, IMU, magnetometer, and barometer embed all the metadata in still images needed to create accurate maps.

PWM Control

Configure and control the camera in the air with up to four PWM inputs, or interface to MAVLink devices.

On-Board Recording

Records digital thermal video and stills to two dedicated on-board microSD cards.
