Designed with professional applications in mind, the FLIR Vue Pro 640 30Hz Fast Frame Rate Thermal Camera is more than a thermal camera. It is a contactless thermal measurement instrument and data recorder, able to meet the demands of professional drone operators.
With its ability to provide thermal drone experts with accurate 8-bit digital thermal videos in MJPEG or H.264 format, and 14-bit still images, the FLIR Vue Pro can add tremendous value to your sUAS operations and services. The fast frame rates ensure blur-free, ultra-smooth video and still images, despite wind and weather conditions, or dynamic flight patterns. Not only does it have the ability to produce quality thermal video and images, the FLIR Vue Pro is able to work with the latest image stitching technology and drone-mapping services such as Pix4Dmapper. This thermal imaging quality and capability is perfect for applications such as surveying, mapping, agriculture, search and rescue, roof inspections, utility and asset inspections, security, and more.
Fully compatible with Pix4Dmapper desktop software, the FLIR Vue Pro makes it easy to get from still images to impressive and highly precise 2D maps and 3D models. 4D output from the FLIR Vue Pro is automatically georeferenced and tagged with real-world map coordinates, so you can be sure of the accuracy of your final product.
Real-time color thermal 1080p videos and still images recorded by the FLIR Vue Pro, as well as each image’s flight data, are recorded to the onboard microSD card, so you don’t have to worry about transmission quality, time or security. To retrieve your data from the card, simply plug the camera into a USB port on your computer, and download the image files.
And although lacking an optical zoom, the e-zoom feature of the camera offers a digital zoom capability of up to 8x. Speedy full frame rates of 30Hz for NTSC and 25Hz for PAL in the FLIR Vue Pro 640 variant, and export rates of 7.5Hz for NTSC and 8.3Hz for PAL means better quality images with less waiting time.
The integrated MAVLink capability means that all images captured by the FLIR Vue Pro are automatically geo-tagged making it easy to stitch together these captured images to create accurate, detailed maps and surveys. MAVLink can also be used to set up advanced camera features such as automated image capture.
While in flight, users can maintain control of up to two camera functions at a time through Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). These controls allow the operator to start or stop camera recording, select different color palettes, zoom in or out, or set and modify other image optimization features, all while the camera is in the air.
No need to bring your laptop on site to set up camera parameters or plan flights; with the FLIR Vue Pro it’s simple and easy to download the FLIR UAS mobile app (iOS and Android) to smartphone or tablet, and connect via built-in Bluetooth, to have complete control of all camera functions (through PWM) before and during flight. You can also integrate with your drone’s control system (through the camera Accessory Port) to enable control of camera functions through your drone control system.

* Because the analog video output resolutions (640 × 480 and 320 × 240, respectively) are less than the full sensor resolution captured when saving digital stills and video, their resultant fields of view are slightly smaller as well. Both sets of values are shown here to allow operators the option of choosing the FOVs that most accurately reflect their pre-flight planning requirements.
** Note: The HDMI output is not intended for use to drive a television or display. The micro-HDMI connector outputs HDMI video for live digital video downlink systems like DJI Lightbridge and 3DR Solo.
