Development Kits for Hadron 640R Dual Camera Module

Hadron 640R development kits pair the FLIR Hadron 640R Dual Thermal Drone Camera Module with hardware and reference software drivers.

The kits provide quick integration with development boards supporting the Qualcomm RB5, the NVIDIA Jetson Nano, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Integrators can start imaging and controlling the infrared thermal and visible camera in hours, saving potentially weeks of development time and cost.

The FLIR Hadron 640R includes a 64 MP visible camera and a 640×512 resolution radiometric Boson providing the ability to see through total darkness, smoke, most fog, and glare as well as take the temperature of every pixel in the scene.

With a size, weight, and power (SWaP) optimized design and the rapid development kits, the Hadron 640R is the ideal dual sensor payload for integration into unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), robotic platforms, and AI-ready applications where battery life and run-time are mission critical.


Radiometric Temperature Measurements

A radiometric thermal camera measures the temperature of a surface by interpreting the intensity of an infrared signal reaching the camera. This non-contact and non-destructive technique (NDT) gives users enormous advantages for many of their surface temperature measurement applications because it can be integrated into a FLIR drone package.

An unmanned aerial system (UAS) allows a drone operator to move and position the thermal camera to quickly make temperature measurements over large areas and in difficult or dangerous environments.

Drones fitted with an IR camera can measure:

  • Surface temperature of a heat exchanger on a roof
  • Faulty connections on a high voltage transmission line
  • Solar cells in a solar panel
  • Moisture content in large agricultural fields


Measuring Optically Opaque Materials

The ability to remotely sense temperature, as opposed to direct surface contact needs to factor in the surface and environmental conditions.

Radiometric measurements are best used on optically opaque materials such as metals and organic materials. Zirconia oxides, zinc sulfide glass, and sapphire glass are semi-translucent to infrared heat so radiometric measurements must account for the total volumetric and through-plane temperature of these materials. This significantly increases the complexity of the analysis.

Dark coloured roofs captured by FLIR thermal camera

The Sizzling Impact of Dark Roofs and Urban Heat Islands

Dark roofs are popular in Australian urban areas but they come with a catch. Dark coloured materials absorb and retain a substantial amount of heat, increasing local temperatures, and fostering urban heat islands. Understanding the impacts of dark roofs on urban heat is crucial for developing sustainable solutions to mitigate their effects and building resilient cities. The
