Innovation in Action

FLIR Systems’ UAS thermal camera contributes to O&M improvement

An end-to-end inspection can be so labor-intensive that it may take weeks to perform solely with handheld test equipment. The secret lies in aerial thermal imaging kits provided by FLIR Systems.

Thermal Thoughts for Public Safety Operators (Part 1)

Thermal Thoughts for Public Safety Operators (Part 1)

In this episode of FLIR DELTA we’re going to cover three inter-related environmental factors that can trip up new Public Safety operators: the diurnal cycle, solar loading, and thermal crossover.

Thermal Thoughts for Public Safety Operators (Part 2)

Thermal Thoughts for Public Safety Operators (Part 2)

When flying a thermal drone how hot or cold it feels to you can be misleading for how objects will look on a thermal camera. In this episode learn about the differences between heat and temperature, and how emissivity is a measure of absorbing and releasing thermal energy. You’ll also learn about apparent temperature and how weather conditions can impact how thermal images will look throughout the day and night.

Roof Inspections with Thermal Drones

Roof Inspections with Thermal Drones

Thinking of using your thermal drone to inspect large commercial roofs? Here are four things you need to consider before you take to the sky.

Fighting Fires with Thermal Drones

Fighting Fires with Thermal Drones

Did you know thermal cameras can see through smoke, show the integrity of a burning roof, find victims hidden in a fire scene, and improve hot-spot detection? See how thermal drones help in the life-saving missions for fire departments large and small. Structure, grassland and forest fires can all be supported by this powerful technology.

Inspecting Solar Panels with Thermal Drones

Inspecting Solar Panels with Thermal Drones

In the latest episode of FLIR Delta, we will answer the four most commonly asked questions about using thermal drones in solar panel inspections. • Why use a thermal drone to inspect solar installations? • What am I looking for? • How should I fly the inspection? • Can I diagnose problems with just the images I capture?

5 Things to Consider About Aerial Electrical Utility Inspections

5 Things to Consider About Aerial Electrical Utility Inspections

Thermographers have been inspecting substations and overhead electrical transmission lines for years, but they’ve needed specialized tools and techniques to do it. In this episode learn a few reasons you should think about expanding your drone skill set to be able to inspect substations and overhead electrical lines.

 


Technical Considerations

Radiometric Temperature Measurements

A radiometric thermal camera measures the temperature of a surface by interpreting the intensity of an infrared signal reaching the camera. A UAS allows an operator to move and position the thermal camera to quickly make temperature measurements over large areas and in difficult or dangerous environments.

Infrared Thermography Training Resources

Transport Canada regulations coming into effect June 1, 2019 require passing a test that is outside the Infrared Training Center scope of expertise.  Transport Canada recommends taking drone operation training from a ground school from a list available on the Transport Canada website.  ITC Canada provides aerial thermography application training as part of our Level 1 and Level 1 Building courses, required for compliance to Canada’s National Master Specification. Find a course near you:
