FLIR Vue TZ20-R Radiometric Thermal Zoom Drone Camera


    Unmatched thermal zoom performance and clarity at 5×, 10×, and 20×


    Dual Bosons provide 4× more radiometric pixels on target at every zoom level versus all competitors.


    Plug and play with DJI Matrice 300, DJI V2 Matrice 200 series, and post-process reporting software.



FLIR Vue TZ20-R High Resolution Thermal Zoom Drone Payload

The Vue TZ20-R features two Boson thermal cameras that put four times more pixels on target at every zoom level versus all competition and it offers an unmatched 20x zoom capability.

The radiometric thermal zoom drone payload enables DJI V2 Matrice 200 series and 300 pilots to see and measure thermal details, increasing the value and extending the lifetime of their drone fleet.

Utility, roofing, solar farm, and other industrial inspectors can zoom into objects of interest, identify them with unmatched clarity, and take and record radiometric temperature measurements, all from a safe standoff distance.

Emergency response pilots in search and rescue, law enforcement, firefighting, and public safety can search for and observe in silence while using the thermal zoom to reduce false positives and make critical decisions faster with the affordable Vue TZ20-R.

The combination of performance-leading thermal zoom and radiometry enables more efficient missions with faster search, silent surveillance, and safer stand-off inspections.

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
