Hadron 640R+ High Performance, Dual Thermal and Visible OEM Camera Module

Teledyne FLIR has launched the next generation dual thermal and visible camera Hadron 640 series. The NEW ITAR-free radiometric Hadron 640R+ offers an industry-leading thermal sensitivity of <20 mK in a SWaP-optimized design for UAV, UGV, and robotic platform integrators.

Hadron 640R+ Remote Applications

The Hadron 640R+ pairs a 64MP visible camera with a performance-leading 640 x 512 resolution radiometric Boson or Boson+ thermal camera in a single easy-to-integrate module. With a size, weight, and power (SWaP) optimized design, it is an ideal dual sensor payload for integration into unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), robotic platforms, and emerging AI applications utilizing Teledyne FLIR Prism software.

Hadron 640 models share mechanical and electrical interfaces simplifying design. Compatible with Teledyne FLIR’s Prism AI detection, tracking, and classification models and Prism ISP libraries for super-resolution, turbulence mitigation, contrast enhancement, and more, Hadron 640 series enables effective AI-based applications. With drivers available for market leading processors from NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and more plus industry-leading integration support, Hadron 640 also reduces development cost and shortens time to market.

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

FLIR also offers a non-radiometric solution with the FLIR Hadron 640+ Drone Camera Module.

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
