Made in the USA, the radiometric VUE TZ20-R thermal-zoom drone payload enables DJI V2 Matrice 200 series and 300 pilots to see and measure thermal details not possible with other leading sUAS aircraft and payloads. The TZ20-R features two FLIR Boson® thermal cameras that put four times more pixels on target at every zoom level versus all competition and offers an unmatched 20× zoom capability. Utility, roofing, solar farm, and other industrial inspectors can zoom into objects of interest, identify them with unmatched clarity, and take and record radiometric temperature measurements, all from a safe standoff distance. Emergency response pilots in search and rescue, law enforcement, firefighting, and public safety can search for and observe in silence while using the thermal zoom to reduce false positives and make critical decisions faster with the affordable VUE TZ20-R. The combination of performance-leading thermal zoom and radiometry enables more efficient missions with faster search, silent surveillance, and safer stand-off inspections.
