Thermal Mapping Technology
With Thermal Mapping
Get the big picture through aerial thermal mapping. The Zenmuse XT2 is a high-quality radiometric thermal camera, ideal for identification, surveillance, and inspections. Thermal cameras convert heat energy into visual images of surface temperatures that are invisible to the naked eye. From identifying dangerous hotspots to spotting wildlife, thermal mapping is useful across several industries. The Zenmuse XT2 is paired with a 24MP RGB camera that can be used to take high-quality still images or record video. They are housed together, and both images can be accurately geotagged. At FulcrumAir, we use only the best in commercial drones and aerial robotics combined with world-leading cameras and sensing technology.
A thermal camera detects medium to long infrared wavelengths and converts them into a visible display. Because they rely on heat signatures, thermal cameras can produce high-quality images, even in low-light conditions.
Precise Hotspot Detection
Thermal cameras can uncover areas of interest, such as hotspots and thermal leaks that may not be visible to the human eye. Early detection of such faults can prevent more severe issues in the future.
Subject Location Accuracy
Thermal images can be geotagged and are exceptionally accurate at detecting the origin of a heat signature. Heat data is stored in pixels and can be merged with video recordings to produce accurate data.
Aerial thermal mapping is a safe and non-intrusive method for collecting data on endangered wildlife and ecosystems. Thermal images can confirm the locations of various animals and their nests. Because the images are successfully geotagged, biologists can rely on the data’s accuracy for locating certain species. Drones leave less of a footprint on the environment than manual surveys, plus they cover more surface area, have a low noise footprint, and low-light functionality.
The Zenmuse XT2 can produce high-quality and accurate images from +40,000 ft.
Thermal technology operates just as well in low-light conditions, and the Zenmuse XT2 works in temperatures between -20°C to +50°C.
The thermal sensor is paired with a 20MP camera that can simultaneously capture geo-tagged RGB images allowing for optimal accuracy and precision.
