Today, we’re excited to share that Site Scan now offers an industry-first thermal capability for drones: now, you can capture and use structurally-detailed thermal maps and 3D models in Site Scan, giving you a whole new level of visibility into your projects.
Join our webinar with DJI and FLIR to learn how you can create 3D thermal models with drones!
The first of its kind
This is a one-of-a-kind capability built in collaboration with DJI and FLIR Systems: Site Scan seamlessly supports flying autonomously with the DJI M210 dual gimbal drone, equipped with the Zenmuse X4S and the Zenmuse XT thermal camera, powered by FLIR.
“Site Scan’s unique ability to generate structurally detailed thermal point clouds is a brand new capability for our customers across engineering, construction, and mining,” said Chris Anderson, CEO, 3DR. “Now, Site Scan users can easily inspect buildings, structures, and utilities, map solar arrays, monitor concrete curing, and much more. We’re excited to see how our customers put thermal imaging to work on their projects.”
The workflow is simple: Site Scan users just plan and execute their flight in Site Scan like normal, and the M200 series drone will collect both RGB and thermal imagery. It can then be processed into structurally-detailed thermal maps and models using Pix4D’s industry-leading thermal processing capabilities.
As part of this release, Site Scan users are also now able to fly with the XT camera using a single gimbal on any of the the DJI M200 Series drones (M200, M210, M210 RTK). This makes it easier than ever to perform thermal inspections: Site Scan users can either fly single gimbal autonomous surveys, or fly manually and tap any part of their iPad screen to get a temperature reading of a specific area.
“As more enterprises deploy drones across their operations, many of them are realizing the impact thermal data can have on their sites,” said Jan Gasparic, Head of Enterprise Partnerships at DJI. “With the new thermal capabilities of 3DR’s Site Scan platform, these enterprises have a seamless and automated way to transition from a DJI M200 Series drone out in the field to meaningful analytics of thermal data in the office.”
“Thermal imaging has become a core tool for commercial drone operators to use on the job,” said Frank Pennisi, President of the Industrial Business Unit at FLIR. “The ability to use a drone to see heat and now map it with 3DR Site Scan will enable the industry to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and do more with thermal imaging.”
