Produce simpler and more effective thermal infrared images.


Drone thermography allows you to obtain a thermographic image of a scene recorded in infrared. This technique is particularly used in industry to detect breakdowns or carry out predictive maintenance.

Thermal use for Firefighters

Drones are increasingly used by firefighters and insurers for their speed of deployment and their ability to intervene in all types of fires. They allow for quick decision-making and risk-free assessments of the areas, aiding firefighters without exposing them to additional risks.

Produce an orthophotograph

Using a drone to capture infrared images allows for significant cost savings compared to other methods typically used. Additionally, it is quick to deploy and can operate over small or large areas.

Drone-based Inspection of Photovoltaic Panels

The best tool for diagnosing the health status of solar panels is the thermal camera. Mounted on a drone, the thermal camera enables rapid and efficient inspection of even the largest photovoltaic plants.

Objectives of drone thermography training

Take advantage of rapid deployment and time savings through the flexibility of drones and mission automation.

Training Objectives

Integrate drone technology into thermography inspection activities. This training can be part of a professional development path, complementing the initial training of civil drone pilots.

Pédagogical Objectives

Learn infrared thermography, become proficient in conducting diagnostics and maintenance through thermography, avoid pitfalls, and interpret results effectively.
