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.

Normal vision camera vs thermal vision

These two pictures were taken in the same position only with normal vision and thermal vision, the drone did not move.

Transport Incident

Incident Southern Alberta Dec 2023, No pictures due to sensitive scene

Scene:
– Two transport trucks carrying unknown substances collide in bad weather.
– Placards cannot be read so substances unknown, therefor Hazmat teams delayed.
– Unknown possible leaks.

Solution:
– Thermal drone called and flown into scene.
– Placards found and read.
– Tank levels measured in both units by thermal imaging.
– Precise location of leaks found by thermal imaging.
– Major heat areas for possible ignition points identified.
