First Responders: Buy Complete Drone Packages through FLIR

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Starting April 20, firefighters, emergency response teams, and search and rescue (SAR) operations will be able to purchase ready-to-fly drone packages through FLIR dealers and distributors.

The new FLIR Aerial First Responder Kit will bundle the DJI Inspire 1 drone with the DJI Zenmuse XT stabilized thermal camera powered by FLIR and offered in two configurations, Basic and Advanced.

The Basic bundle includes the 336x256 resolution Zenmuse XT with a 45-degree lens, while the Advanced package sports a higher, 640x480 resolution Zenmuse XT and a 45-degree lens. The Advanced package also includes a second controller so that one controller can be dedicated to aircraft control and the other used for camera control and configuration. All controllers receive live digital video downlink on the Apple iPad Mini included with each controller.

The FLIR-equipped DJI drone packages offer first responders added support with the ability to see through smoke, assess the scene from an aerial perspective, and keep track of their personnel in large fire scenes. For search and rescue operators, they offer valuable observation capabilities in dangerous environments when time is critical.

By combining the flight stability, gimbal technology, mobile app integration, and image transmission of the popular and proven DJI Inspire 1 with the industry-leading thermal imaging technology of FLIR in the Zenmuse XT, these packages are the ultimate solutions for reliable, rapidly-deployable aerial thermal imaging.

The FLIR Aerial First Responder Kits start at $10,450 USD. To learn more about package options and where to buy, visit
