Introducing FLIR Vue™ Pro

Take drone thermal imaging and data recording to the new heights with Vue Pro

With FLIR Vue you get all the thermal imager you need for sUAS operations without having to pay for functionality you’ll never use.

Designed for professional use, FLIR Vue Pro is more than a thermal camera, it is a thermal measurement instrument and data recorder that adds tremendous value to your sUAS operations and services.

Still with the same industry-leading thermal imaging quality and great value as the best-selling FLIR Vue, the Vue Pro adds full data recording of thermal video and 14-bit still imagery. FLIR Vue Pro also uses FLIR Vue’s popular and convenient power-in/video-out connection over a 10-pin mini-USB making integration a snap, and ensuring that you’ll have easy access to analog video for downlinking.

FLIR Vue Pro gives you in-flight control of two camera functions through direct PWM connections, and it’s future MAVLink compatibility will make it ready for the easy image stitching required for mapping, survey, and precision agriculture applications. Plus, it’s compatible with Pix4Dmapper right out of the box

The convenient mobile app makes pre-flight camera set-up and configuration quick and easy so you won’t have to drag a computer out to your flying site just in case you need to change a camera setting.

Best of all, with MSRPs starting at only $1,999, FLIR Vue Pro is the only thermal imager your drone operations will ever need, and it’s affordable for today’s commercial sUAS operations.

FLIR Vue Pro gives you more than thermal images, it gives you thermal data for informed decisions.

On-Board Recording

Vue Pro records 8-bit digital video in MJPEG or H.264 formats and 14-bit still imagery to a removable micro-SD card so you won’t lose any of your data to transmission loss. Imagery is saved to the micro-SD card and can be retrieved either from the card or by plugging the camera into a USB cable, where your computer will see it as a storage device.

The Imaging solution for DJI commercial drones –  from DJI and FLIR

Thanks to the Zenmuse XT from DJI and FLIR, thermal imaging from the air has never been easier. By combining DJI’s unrivaled expertise in flight stability, gimbal technology, and image transmission with the industry-leading thermal imaging technology of FLIR, the Zenmuse XT is the ultimate solution for reliable, rapid-deployable aerial thermal imaging. Capture your thermal images faster, covering large areas, and save them for analysis and reporting.

Available in either 640×512 or 336×256 resolutions, the Zenmuse XT has multiple lens options to make sure you’ll have the right combination of situational awareness, magnification, spot size, and area coverage to suit your mission requirements.

DJI Application Interface

Seamless Integration

The Zenmuse XT provides complete camera control through the DJI Go app. This gives you real-time configuration of camera controls like color palette selection, isotherms, level and span adjustment, and zoom just to name a few. It also lets you control your video recording or still image capture settings with the press of a finger, making capturing the thermal data you need as seamless as possible.

Mission Ready

Mounted on either the Inspire 1 or the Matrice 100, the Zenmuse XT is ready to launch in seconds. Its seamless integration gives you access to important features like DJI’s powerful Lightbridge video transmission system, automated Point of Interest, Course and Home Lock, Follow Me, and the DJI SDK.

Fast, efficient, yet stable airframes, the Inspire 1 will keep the Zenmuse XT aloft for 22 minutes. If used with the Matrice 100, the Zenmuse XT can stay in flight for up to 35 minutes*, ideal for large scale inspections and especially useful in search and rescue scenarios.

*Inspire 1: Flight times vary based on flight conditions, with a maximum 22 minute flight time being recorded when hovering with a TB48 battery using the Zenmuse XT gimbal camera.
*M100: Flight times vary based on payload and flight conditions, with a maximum 35 minute flight time being recorded when hovering with dual TB48D batteries and no additional payload other than a Zenmuse XT gimbal camera.
