Thermal imaging system for drones

I would like to introduce a thermal imaging system for drones and UAV systems made by european company Workswell s.r.o.

Basic parameters

Workswell Thermal Vision Pro is high-end and unique wireless thermal imaging solution with two cameras and storage for unmanned aerial vehicles, quadrocopters or drones. This lightweight system offers a maximum resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and a temperature sensitivity of 0.05 °C which ranks to the best on the market. You can record continuous video, take images and save data to storage for later analysis.

More information is avaible on our website: http://www.drone-thermal-camera.com/

Some advantages of system

see in a day or night, even in complete darkness radimetrics data recording see through the fog, thick smoke and partly through the vegetation all the data are sent wirelessly to the operator’s controller one touch system for saving all images at the same time

The aim of the whole system is the simple transfer, storage and processing of radiometric (temperature) data directly from a UAV (drone) and displaying the data on the screen of the remote control in real time. The system offers three picture modes that can be set by the operator using the keyboard prior to take off. During the flight, the operator can switch between the modes using the UAV remote control.
