Long flight thermal camera drone

Weather resistant | live video stream

Weather resistant long flight uav/drone with flir thermal camera and live video stream

Performance and beauty are the centerpiece of our drone platforms. Extremely lightweight monobuild body is designed to enclose all electrical components of the highest quality in a wheather proof manner. Integration of the latest high performance and high capacity batteries makes our drones more efficient, yet equally compact in order to provide you with the most time in the air.

They are designed to deliver the optimal ratio of flight time and payload for your particular application. Whether it is surveillance, search and rescue or wild life observation you are doing, the prolonged flight time will increase your operations efficiency. Currently we provide three quadcopter models different in size and therefore prolonged fligth times from 60 minutes to 90 minutes: TC411 / TC415 / TC421

Our drones are built to order, delivered in 8 weeks. We are able to provide custom drones for volume production as well as low volume speciality projects. Suggested order quantity is 3 units of same model long flight time drone.

The Camera Module has a Sony IMX219 8-megapixel sensor. It can be used to take high-definition video, as well as still photographs. It’s a leap forward in image quality, colour fidelity, and low-light performance.
Not only the simultaneous still picture and video imaging at 30 frame/s in all pixels (no shutter lag and simultaneous recording), but also 4 times faster imaging became possible by 2 × 2 analog binning mode. This enables HD video recording with 2M pixels at full field of view and 120 frame/s, or 1280 × 720 pixels of 16:9 aspect ratio at 180 frame/s. Slow-motion recording using this function reproduces dynamic movements into a smooth video in flight recording, and sensitive movements or expressions beyond human vision can be captured.

Application area of thermal camera drones

Unmanned surveillance

Finally you can record longer thermal videos and analyze the heat movements over the time.

Search and Rescue

When it comes to Search and Rescue operations to find lives, every minute counts! Our drone platforms integrated with the M2-D thermal imaging camera, will provide you with the time you need in the air.

Wild Life Observation

2D / 3D Mapping

With the Ground Control Station App, you can create 2D / 3D maps both in HD and thermal view!

Live stream to YouTube and share real-time flight video

Why M2-D Mini Gyro Stabilized EO/IR Drone FLIR Thermal Imaging camera?

The M2-D Gyro stabilized Mini Gimbal ball provides superior image quality both during day and night times, outstanding gyro stabilization, and low power consumption. It incorporates top-of-the-line components: a sensitive thermal FLIR sensor, high-end motors, hardened/coated optics, all at an affordable SWaP package.

The M2-D delivers EO, ZOOM, IR, Gimbal & Stabilization – all within 160 grams. The EO daytime color/low light camera of the M2D incorporates x6.6 zoom + x2 digital zoom to a total of x13.2 zoom. The thermal FLIR camera channel of the M2-D can incorporate either 640×512 or 384×288 resolution. SPI has been building robust high quality EOIR equipment for almost 2 decades for industrial, law enforcement, law eforcement and military customers.

The M2-D is a third generation product, the rock steady gyro stabilized EO IR camera is the most powerful, lightest and smallest production gimbal in the world. This is why we chose to integrate M2-D on our drones to provide you with longer flight times also for thermal imaging and surveying applications. You can expect up to 75 minutes flight time.
