Aerial thermal inspections enable those in the commercial sector to easily detect and analyze energy that was previously invisible to the naked eye. Thanks to this cutting-edge technology, workers in industries including firefighting, search and rescue, precision agriculture and more, have a fast and economical way to stay on top of maintenance, maximize efficiency, and keep workers out of harm’s way. A drone equipped with a thermal camera can enable users to effortlessly detect damage on equipment or buildings, pinpoint the location of victims in emergency situations, or even analyze plant health. Attaining thermal image data from the air is now easier, faster and more accurate than ever before.
The commercial sector demands efficient, reliable and regular inspections to stay on top of operations and better detect problems before they grow. With the ability to easily pinpoint defects or faulty equipment, companies can save on resources by running less risk of potential downtime or growing damage to equipment that may have slipped under the radar. With all of the expenses that come with alternative aerial inspections methods such as helicopters or planes, a drone equipped with a thermal camera can efficiently detect potential hazards that may occur in a variety of inspection fields at half of the cost.
Aerial thermal energy can help users in the energy sector vastly reduce the time, cost, and manpower of traditional aerial inspections in a field where regular surveys and maintenance of equipment are critical to the safety and efficiency of operations. From wind farms to solar farms, thermal imagery can better detect any defects or temperature imbalances in equipment to optimize operations and prevent future damage from occurring. With a drone in the air, inspections are more efficient and effective.
A thermal camera attached to a drone can help search and rescue crews easily detect the heat signatures of victims through areas of low visibility in situations where every second counts. With a thermal camera in the air, crews can search through thick canopy coverage in the wilderness, or use the drone as a night vision tool to continue a mission even after the sun has set.
In emergency situations, a thermal view from the air can enable fire crews to quickly scan over a fire to extinguish flames faster and safer than ever before. With a drone broadcasting a thermal view from an aerial perspective, fire crews can easily and efficiently detect hotspots, measure the temperatures inside of a structure, track the path of fire or smoke, or spot victims who could still be trapped.
Multispectral of infrared cameras can be used in the agricultural sector to help better analyze the condition of crops or crop threats, observe livestock, or even view subtle temperature differences that can be viewed to help users better plan out crop strategy for the most optimal season possible. Thermal images captured via a drone can be used for: plant disease detection, yield estimation, temperature monitoring, pesticide management, to highly the differences between healthy and unhealthy plants, and more.
A survey with a drone that is equipped with a thermal camera can easily assess the conditions of power lines to prevent damage and potential outages from occurring. Damage to power line structures can be easily pinpointed with aerial thermal imagery, and surveys can be regularly conducted to ensure that power lines are running as optimally as possible, while also keeping workers safe.
