FLIR’s Vue® TZ20 Hi-Res Dual Thermal Zoom has all the features to make it the ultimate thermal payload for public safety and more.
Situational awareness is a key benefit of public safety drone programs. For law enforcement, an early understanding of a scene can improve the safety of all involved. That’s where unmanned systems can be invaluable, lending an eye in the sky and sending critical information to the response team on the ground.
Thermal imaging adds an extra level of information, enabling teams to see and understand situations unclear to the naked eye. For public safety agencies, however, new tools can mean additional training burden and integration challenges. FLIR’s solution offers a solution without compromise. The Vue TZ20 was introduced in August 2020 at the DJI Airworks conference. Fully integrated with the Matrice 200 series and 300 airframes, the plug-and-play gimbal system offers FLIR’s industry leading thermal capabilities right out of the box. The Vue TZ operates on the DJI Pilot App: so users don’t need to download and learn a second app.
Two factory calibrated, dual 640 x 512 Boson thermal cameras equipped with expandable infrared video streaming; combined with sophisticated features make the FLIR Vue TZ20 the best thermal payload for public safety on the market. Payload functions include thermal video streaming, video recording, and still-image capture with 20-times zoom: enabling operators to conduct missions from a safe distance while capturing the thermal data and all of the detail they need. Unlike digital zoom, TZ 20 provides continuous zoom: improved size and lower weight to keep the drone flying longer.
Law enforcement and other public safety agencies can use thermal imaging for a wide variety of applications. Whether it’s monitoring a crowd at a public event, responding to a crime scene call, documenting an accident or searching for a lost person, an eye in the sky equipped with thermal imaging is a critical tool. With the best thermal features on the market, smooth integration via a quick connection via the Skyport v2.0 gimbal, and no new app to learn, the Vue TZ20 is the ideal addition to optimize the utility of an agency’s Matrice fleet.
