In search and rescue (SAR) operations, the key to success often lies in detecting the invisible. The DJI Mavic 3 Thermal stands out in its ability to uncover individuals through their body heat in difficult terrains and poor visibility conditions.

Thermal imaging has become an essential tool for law enforcement agencies worldwide in detecting and tracking. These cameras are highly accurate, versatile, and effective at detecting small, fast-moving objects at low altitudes.

A thermographic inspection is either an interior or exterior survey. Interior scans are more common, because warm air escaping from a building does not always move through the walls in a straight line.

Using drones to calculate stockpile measurements makes it easy to compare your current stockpile volumes to previous surveys and track site progress.

All objects with temperatures above absolute zero (0 Kelvin) can be seen using a thermal sensor. Use cases include surveillance and security, infrastructure inspections, water source identification, livestock detection and heat signature detection.

The thermal cameras are also extremely useful during the mop up stage of a fire, when it is extremely important for ground crews to locate and extinguish hot spots along the fireline, insuring that further spread of the fire is prevented.

Thermal cameras see through smoke making it easy to identify where exactly where fires are. This greatly improves fire fighter safety while providing a swifter attack response.

Commercial and Thermal Imaging

Real Estate:

– Drone pictures and videos are able to fully map a property and provide a different perspective. Not only is it for visual reference for the potential buyer, but abnormalities may also be detected by the seller and corrected before the sale. Drone thermal imaging is beneficial for examining the exteriors of homes and businesses not just for resale It’s ideal for detecting leakages and identifying causes of power inefficiency and external problems. In the case of houses, this can save homeowners a lot of money on energy and maintenance costs when these issues are detected early.


– Electrical installations, such as power stations, powerlines, towers, voltage regulation devices, and common household wiring may more be easily inspected and checked for excessive heat spots, defective parts, and weak connections from a safe distance using thermal cameras eliminating any requirement for bulky devices or placing lives in danger.


– Drones can create 3-dimensional images for accurate stockpile measurements and monitor construction stages.

Search and Rescue:

Thermal imaging cameras react to heat. When searching for a subject under heavy canopy or mountainous ranges the human eye cannot see what a thermal camera can see, this has the potential to make a “hours” or “days” search by ground teams turn into literally minutes as the drone can scan a large area very quickly! If the subject is found a QR code is simply given to search teams which brings up the subject’s location on their cellular devices.
