Teledyne FLIR released the FLIR Vue TZ20-R, a high resolution, thermal zoom gimbal, built for the DJI V2 Matrice 200 Series and Matrice 300 airframes.

The gimbal includes radiometry to measure the temperature of pixels in the scene. It also features two 640×512 resolution FLIR Boson® thermal camera modules, with one providing a narrow-field-of-view (18 degrees) and the other a wide-field-of-view (95 degrees).

Rated to provide operability in poor weather conditions and weighing 640 grams, the dual thermal camera system also offers thermal zoom performance at five times, 10 times, and 20 times digital zoom for a variety of public safety and industrial missions.

The dual Boson camera modules provides four times radiometric pixels on target at every zoom level, helping pilots to scan and survey large areas quickly, all while preserving flight time and maintaining a safe standoff distance.


Operators can use in-app features, such as isotherms to automatically detect temperatures of interest.

The TZ20-R offers a more simplified operation and payload connection via the Skyport V2.0 gimbal on the DJI Matrice 300 or V2 Matrice 200 series.

Thermal video and still-image data can be recorded on dual microSD cards along with the ability to stream thermal video mid-flight. Post mission, operators can export the data to FLIR Thermal Studio and third-party data processing software for review.

The FLIR Vue TZ20-R is available for pre-order with delivery in October through authorized distributors.
