FLIR Vue Pro R Radiometric Drone Thermal Camera


    The Vue Pro R is more than a thermal imager — it captures accurate, non-contact temperature measurements with calibrated temperature data embedded in every pixel.


    In addition to MAVLink compatibility for image geo-tagging, the Accessory Port lets you control camera functions in flight by integrating with your drone’s control system.


    Easy configuration with the FLIR UAS app lets pilots set color palettes, image optimization features, configure PWM inputs without lugging a computer to the field.



FLIR Vue Pro R Drone IR Camera

The FLIR Vue Pro R gives drone operators and certified thermographers the power to gather accurate, non-contact temperature measurements and thermal images from drones.

Every still image the Vue Pro R saves contains accurate, calibrated temperature data embedded in every pixel, adding even more value to your Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS) operations. Vue Pro R adds fully radiometric data-gathering to sUAS applications including building and roof inspections, electrical and power grid inspections, infrastructure analysis, precision agriculture, and public safety.

Delivering industry-leading thermal imaging quality and affordability, the Vue Pro R adds full data recording of thermal video and 14-bit still imagery.

This IR camera is perfect for:

  • Airborne solar panel inspections
  • Building inspections
  • Livestock management
  • Natural resource management and protection
  • Public safety
  • Search and rescue


Affordable Thermal Imaging and On-Board Data Recording

  • Record digital video and still imagery to a removable micro-SD card, eliminating data transmission loss
  • Simple power-in/video-out interface over a 10-pin mini-USB connector
  • Image settings optimized for airborne operations
  • Record real-time thermal videos in MOV format
  • Aircraft ¬flight information is saved in each still image


MAVLink Integration and PWM Controls

Flexible, Powerful Camera Control and Configuration Options

  • Easy configuration with the FLIR UAS app lets pilots set colour palettes and image optimization features
  • Control selectable camera functions with PWM inputs – imagery controls, recording start/stop, and still image capture
  • Vue Pro R saves Radiometric JPEGs with temperature data embedded in every pixel
  • Vue Pro R saves still images as Radiometric JPEGs or 14-bit TIFF formats


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:

  • the surface temperature of a heat exchanger on a roof
  • a faulty connection 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
