New FLIR Duo Pro R Drone Camera for Public Safety, Indust & Comm

The ultimate drone thermal imaging solution is here.

ASTOR platinumFLIR Systems, Four-Time Winner of the 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, including Top Honors for Best CBRNE Detection System, and a competitor in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Awards, has unveiled its most advanced commercial drone camera and aerial mapping system, the dual sensor FLIR Duo Pro R.

Featuring both a thermal sensor with radiometry and a visible camera, the FLIR Duo Pro R gives professional drone operators the range and image detail needed to capture actionable thermal and visible imagery in a single drone flight. 

Ideal for a wide range of high-performance commercial, industrial, and public safety drone applications, the FLIR Duo Pro R allows operators to switch between thermal and video cameras in flight.

With the option of a 336×256 or 640×512 thermal resolution sensor and a high-definition 4K color video camera, the FLIR Duo Pro R uses FLIR’s patented multispectral dynamic imaging, MSX®, technology to emboss high-fidelity, visible-light details onto the thermal imagery to improve image quality.
