Thermal cameras are used to detect and scan both people and animals, as well as other areas that emanate heat. In other words, drones with thermal cameras can calculate the temperature and sense, for example, the presence of people entering any premises, even if this is not visibly possible.

Thanks to the technological evolution we have witnessed in recent years, the drone sector has undergone a huge development. Much more advanced accessories have appeared that allow us to complement the work of UAVs to the point of achieving incredible results.

Depending on the purpose for which a drone with a thermal camera will be used, it will be possible to choose between one type or another. For example, those that belong to the security sector usually have either an alarm system that is triggered and activated when an incident is detected for which it is programmed, or applications and messages.

What are thermal cameras?

The thermographic camera, also called thermal camera, refers to a device which, from the infrared radiation of the objects themselves, measures their temperature and provides a thermal image of them without the need to have contact with them. Objects emit a certain amount of infrared radiation depending on their temperature.

Advantages of thermal cameras in drones

Thermal imaging cameras, thanks to their characteristics, provide a number of advantages to UAVs that have them. Some of the main ones:

  • Accurate monitoring. Drones with thermal cameras enable accurate monitoring of the conditions of the surface to be inspected. This is useful in identifying problems and faults and can help make informed decisions about maintenance and repair.+
  • More accurate data. Thermal cameras on drones provide accurate, high-quality data that can be used to identify problems and improve efficiency.
  • Improved safety. Inspecting tall and dangerous structures with drones equipped with a thermal imaging camera is much safer than using traditional methods. This reduces the risk of injury to workers and minimizes the costs associated with accidents.

The best drones with thermal cameras!

At HPDRONES we work with the best brands on the market in order to satisfy any of the needs our customers may have. We offer a wide range of possibilities from which we can choose the one that best suits your circumstances. However, below we mention and explain some of the main drones with thermal cameras that we have.

The drones from the DJI range that we work with at HPDRONES can operate in the most complex conditions and therefore, currently, the drones with the best thermal cameras are for example: DJI Mavic 3 (Enterprise) Thermal and the Zenmuse H20T and H20N sensors that can be used with the DJI Matrice 300 RTK drone.

Get the best results in your activities, even in the most complex and difficult to access jobs.

Drones with thermal cameras in public security forces

In short, drones with thermal cameras allow users to take advantage of a number of benefits, including greater precision in monitoring activities, much more accurate data collection and total safety.

Drone technology is revolutionising military and defence organisations through increased real-time situational awareness, improved mission planning and tactical support. Drones are vital to search and rescue operations for the following reasons: Effective and rapid coverage of large areas. Easy access to hard-to-reach areas and analysis of complex terrain. Fast and cost-effective deployment. Ability to fly low and perform accurate analysis. Thermal and zoom cameras to aid work. Integrates loudspeakers and spotlights for greater mission versatility. Drone data can be used to build 2D maps and 3D models to increase situational awareness.
