Teledyne FLIR, part of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, has launched SIRAS™, a professional drone that includes a quick-connect dual radiometric thermal and visible camera payload. Engineered for data security, performance, and affordability, SIRAS is optimized for industrial and utility inspection, public safety, firefighting, and search & rescue missions.
“Designed to provide pilots with flexibility to get the job done, SIRAS delivers a geofence-free flight experience with thermal and visible imaging capabilities at $9,695 USD,” said Mike Walters, vice president, product management, Teledyne FLIR. “SIRAS is the only enterprise drone to currently incorporate the patented MSX® technology, which overlays the edge detail from the visible camera on the thermal image to provide critical information in real time.”
With a startup time of one minute, pilots can get eyes on the scene quickly and maintain control via a dual-band radio connection, while hot swappable batteries ensure efficient operation. To improve data security, SIRAS stores imagery on an onboard SD card. The IP-54-rated aircraft features a 31-minute flight time, radar-based front collision avoidance, and backpack portability, so professional UAV pilots can fly safely when and where the mission demands.
SIRAS will begin shipping in the fourth quarter of 2022, additional regional availability information provided at https://www.empiredroneco.com/products/teledyne-flir-siras.
