FLIR Tech Note on Radiometric Temp Measurements

FLIR Tech Note on Radiometric Temp Measurements

A radiometric thermal camera measures the temperature of a surface by interpreting the intensity of an infrared signal reaching the camera. This non-contact and non-destructive technique (NDT) gives users enormous advantages for many of their surface temperature measurement applications. It can be integrated onto unmanned aerial systems (UAS). Click here for the FLIR UAS TECH NOTE

Drone Search and Rescue- Mission Ready – Part Two

The rain was so heavy that, in no time, we were all completely drenched. We didn’t have time to put on our rain gear. Luckily, I had decided to pack the drone in a dry bag inside the backpack. So at least I knew that the Phantom 4 would stay dry. The conditions got worse […]

  “LANDSCAPE AND ARCHITECTURE” Ottsjö by Air and Timelapse—by Marcus Möller For 2018, the “Landscape” and “Architecture” categories, which had previously been separate, have been combined into one. The title is fairly literal on this one, so it pretty much describes the concept. But that doesn’t begin to cover the evocative imagery in this tourism […]

Drone FAQs: Is it OK to use different-capacity packs?

Drone FAQs: Is it OK to use different-capacity packs?

This is a common question, yet the answer is complex. I normally break it down into two categories: sport and commercial. For most first-person view drones and other sport models, you do have some flexibility regarding different-capacity packs without worrying about damaging your unit. In fact, most of the modern racing drones actually can handle […]

Air Traffic Control for Drones

Within the next few years, millions of drones may be regularly flying over U.S. skies, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, better known as NASA, is working with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and industry partners on developing a system for managing drone air traffic. We recently spoke with NASA’s Parimal Kopardekar, Ph.D., manager […]

F-35 Teams Up With Drone Wingmen in New Air Force Video

This is a cool piece from Popular Mechanics by Joe Pappalardo An F-35A fighter plane cuts across the sky, dead-set on destroying an enemy bunker protected by a network of radar and antiaircraft missile batteries. A flock of wingmen tag along to help the pilot defeat these defenses. But none of those companion planes have […]

Props for Racing and Camera Drones

What props would you use for a racing drone versus a camera drone? In general, are there particular things that a pilot should look for in a prop?   In answer to your first question, not all props are designed the same. The technology is so advanced that, nowadays, we develop specific props that are […]

Ready, Set, Go! Setting Up Your Own Drone Race

By John Reid Photos by Lesley Cunningham Greenlee & Cheryl Volmacka Maltby Most races are organized by people who just get together and set up their own event. To see how this is done, we followed a group of racers as they packed up and headed out to some old abandoned houses in the desert […]
