FLIR Duo Thermal Imaging Drone Camera

The FLIR Duo was designed specifically for drones. The footprint of this dual-sensor camera is about the same as most action cameras. The FLIR Duo has on-board recording (yawn), real-time remote control of camera functions over PWM, and MSX multi-spectral image enhancement.

The dual-sensor allows for pictures and videos that are thermal or “normal”.

Not only does Duo capture digital video files, it can also capture still images for later analysis in the free FLIR Tools software package. In FLIR Tools you can combine the two images together with the MSX Blending feature for even more image detail.
