Thermal cameras have come on the scene as an indispensable tool in all kinds of industries and applications. View industry use cases, thermal drone options, and learn infrared resolutions options below.
Public Safety: Thermal imaging is utilized by firefighters, law enforcement and other first responders to enhance safety and improve outcomes. An aerial thermal camera provides firefighters and rescue workers the ability to observe and monitor large areas from a safe distance, along with the ability to see through smoke, and at night or in poor visibility conditions. These features are instrumental in locating lost or injured people, or in safely monitoring rescue efforts.
Inspection: In utility industries, thermal imaging has become standard in asset inspections. Drones are an ideal tool for inspection of solar panel arrays, whether installed on rooftops or in large fields, with their ability to cover a large area quickly. A thermal camera can quickly and easily identify hotspots, which are indicators of faulty or malfunctioning photovoltaic cells, in a fraction of the time and effort required by manual inspection. In pipeline inspections as well, aerial thermal imaging provides a solution to the nearly impossible task of inspecting miles of pipeline in often remote and inaccessible areas. Thermal measurements can identify areas of damaged insulation or leakage, even in certain cases in underground pipelines. In the real estate and construction industry, thermal drones are a great advantage in providing access to rooftops, or achieving an entire view of a large construction, enabling easy identification of potential problem areas, whether it’s water leakage, poor insulation, or other types of damage - and all without having to put a person up on the roof or in other dangerous situations.
Agriculture: Thermal imaging can help in phenotyping, or identifying cultivar varieties in large seedbeds, and monitoring plant responses to conditions. Thermal drones are also used to detect water stress on crops, identifying irrigation issues, and allowing for precise responses to areas needing input. In all of these applications and more, aerial thermal imaging makes possible a higher degree of safety, control, precision and efficiency than can be achieved without this technology.
If you or your organization are just getting started in the use of thermal imaging, a good place to start is with an entry-level thermal drone package. Opting for a bundle or package takes the guesswork out of the process, ensuring that you will have all the parts you need to get started, and that the whole package will work together with no compatibility issues. Going with an entry-level system will give you the opportunity to gain skills and experience in the field of thermal imaging without having to break the bank, while still providing the high-quality imaging you need to collect and assess valuable data to make your organization or business more efficient and productive. The precise drone package that you need will depend on your industry and the intended application, so don’t hesitate to speak with one of our experts to find out which entry-level thermal drone package is right for you.
