PRLog - Aug. 4, 2014 - CUMMING, Ga. -- (CUMMING, GA)— AtlantaHobby.com and UAVExperts.aero have partnered up with FLIR Systems Inc to bring both professionals and hobbyists the Tau 2 Infrared Camera, the latest product of the FLIR Tau family of thermal imaging camera cores.
FLIR Systems Inc. is the world leader in thermal imaging, night vision, and infrared cameras. Infrared technology uses thermal radiation instead of visible light, making it useful for nighttime or severe weather use as it detects temperature differences. This makes FLIR’s technology incredibly useful for applications such as search and rescue, surveillance, security, manufacturing process control, research and development, recreation, navigation, transportation safety, law enforcement, and as a non-invasive diagnostic tool. Since the system works solely off of thermal radiation, it can even detect structural flaws in buildings that are invisible to any other sensor system.
AtlantaHobby.com President, Cliff Whitney,stated “With my background in photography and the combination of our custom stabilized camera gimbals, small UAV systems and FLIR’s Infrared cameras, we have developed easy to use, cost-effective flight systems that are helping municipalities stay in budget and equip their fire and police departments for new capabilities in search and rescue and emergency response. Other systems are hundreds of thousands of dollars, but we have developed small, fully electric, GPS-equipped flight systems with full video downlinks starting at under $5000. These systems fit in a small carry case that can easily fit in a squad car or fire truck, are easy to fly, and can stay in the air for long periods of time. FLIR cameras and our flight systems greatly compliment each other and with our expertise in small UAVs and photography, these systems are giving companies and municipalities the ability to get the job done and save lives.”
