Thermal camera for drones – range performance

We are very often asked about thermal camera performance to detect man-sized target (approx 1.7×0.5m) or detect small car (approx 2.5m x 2.5m). So we decided to create a short video that shows the thermal camera capability to detect  different sized objects (car, person, tractor etc.) at different distances (more in video).

Because it is “search and rescue” area, we decided to use our UAV thermal imaging camera for search and rescue applications – Workswe…. That camera offers thermal imaging camera with resolution 800×600 px and night vidion RGB camera with optical ZOOM up to 30x. We used 35 mm (21.2° x 16.2°) lens (visit FOV calculator for more info).

Enjoy the video and thank you for your feedback!
