The thermal images have many applications nowadays.To be precise Infrared thermography (IRT) is perhaps the most extended name to refer to the infrared imaging science technologies. Others keywords are thermal imaging techniques and thermal video, in the case of animated pictures. In order to be able to have thermal images you need the appropriate items such as thermographic cameras. These cameras are special because can detect what usually our eyes cannot. The thermographic cameras can identify radiation in the long-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Then, by using these data , they can generate images of the radiation present in bodies, buildings and materials. These images are also known as thermograms. One key science-based concept is that because the infrared radiation is emitted by all objetcs with a temperature above absolute zero, according to the black body radition law, the thermograph would allow us to see the surroundings of an object without visible illumination. Because this radition increases with temperature, we can also observe variations of temperature.  Beyond the obvious use of thermography  to the military, it has also been applied to surveillance cameras. Nowadays, with the quadcopters and drones expansion, these thermal cameras are starting to be mounted in quadcopters and drones and can start being used to monitor farm ground temperature and rapid response to fires in dense forests among others. Here we present some of the best aerial thermal cameras for quadcopters and drones as well as the complete kits that can be used with UAV vehicles, drones and quadcopters and iPhones.

Thermal camera Flir 436-0017-00 Vue Pro, 640, 13mm, 30Hz

Introducing FLIR Vue Pro Take drone thermal imaging and data recording to the new heights with Vue Pro With FLIR Vue you get all the thermal imager you need for sUAS operations without having to pay for functionality you’ll never use. Designed for professional use, FLIR Vue Pro is more than a thermal camera, it is a thermal measurement instrument and data recorder that adds tremendous value to your sUAS operations and services. Still with the same industry-leading thermal imaging quality and great value as the best-selling FLIR Vue, the Vue Pro adds full data recording of thermal video and 14-bit still imagery. FLIR Vue Pro also uses FLIR Vue’s popular and convenient power-in/video-out connection over a 10-pin mini-USB making integration a snap, and ensuring that you’ll have easy access to analog video for downlinking. FLIR Vue Pro gives you in-flight control of two camera functions through direct PWM connections, and it’s future MAVLink compatibility will make it ready for the easy image stitching required for mapping, survey, and precision agriculture applications. Plus, it’s compatible with Pix4Dmapper right out of the box. Vue Pro comes with a built-in, low-power Bluetooth module, so you can easily configure your camera with our custom iOS or Android apps before you take off. The convenient mobile app makes pre-flight camera set-up and configuration quick and easy so you won’t have to drag a computer out to your flying site just in case you need to change a camera setting. Vue Pro records 8-bit digital video in MJPEG or H.264 formats and 14-bit still imagery to a removable micro-SD card so you won’t lose any of your data to transmission loss. In addition to its future MAVLink compatibility, the same Accessory Port connection gives you access to two camera controls over PWM commands, so you can select color palettes, start and stop recording, or trigger the camera’s e-zoom in-flight from your radio controller.
