Flir teaming up with DJI to integrate thermal Imaging in drones

Flir Systems has entered into a new technology collaboration with drone manufacturer DJI Innovations.
Under the arrangement, the companies also plans to develop their first joint product, the DJI Zenmuse XT stabilized camera featuring Flir's thermal imaging technology for DJI's Inspire 1 and Matrice aerial platforms.

Using Flir thermal imaging on small drones brings new capabilities of commercial applications, including search and rescue, fire-fighting, agriculture, wildlife protection, and the inspection of energy infrastructure, bridges, and buildings.

"Flir and DJI today support many of the same commercial applications," said Andy Teich, President and CEO of Flir. "Flir is thrilled to work with DJI to deliver these customers a plug-and-play thermal imaging solution for DJI's established ecosystem of unmanned aircraft and related apps while expanding our collective opportunities in the rapidly-growing commercial drone market."

"DJI's collaboration with Flir in thermal imaging signals our intent to innovate in sectors where technology can be a game-changer," said DJI CEO Frank Wang. "The result will be joint, best-in-class solutions that are intuitive and easy to use."
