Teledyne FLIR Drone Optimized for Industrial Inspection, Public Safety

Drones use cases continue to grow, and there is an increasing focus on assisting in public emergency scenarios and supporting innovation in smart cities. Draganfly, for example, assisted with medical supplies in Ukraine, and IN-FLIGHT Data conducted a “SAIL 4” urban drone operation in the city of Calgary in Alberta, Canada.

Optimizing a drone for industrial and utility inspection, public safety, firefighting and search and rescue missions, Teledyne FLIR launched a professional drone that includes a quick-connect dual radiometric thermal and visible camera payload, SIRAS.

SIRAS, engineered for data security, performance and affordability, is IP-54-rated and features a 31-minute flight time, radar-based front collision avoidance and backpack portability. This allows professional UAV pilots to fly safely when and where the mission demands.

The quick-connect Vue TV128 payload features patented MSX technology, adding visible-light outlines to thermal imagery to provide information in real time. The 16MP visible camera can zoom 128x to pinpoint details. The 640-by-512-pixel, radiometric Boson provides thermal imagery, 5x digital zoom and temperature-measurement of every pixel in the scene.

“SIRAS is the only enterprise drone to currently incorporate the patented MSX technology, which overlays the edge detail from the visible camera on the thermal image to provide critical information in real time,” said, Mike Walters, vice president, product management, Teledyne FLIR.

SIRAS stores imagery on an onboard SD card and does not include cloud connection capability. To further protect data chain of custody, pilots are not required to create an online profile, increasing ease of use and reducing potential unintended online data access.

The SIRAS aircraft was designed in collaboration with and is manufactured by Coretronic Intelligent Robotics in Taiwan, a subsidiary of Coretronic Group. The aircraft is priced at $9,695 and will ship in the fourth quarter of 2022 in the U.S.
