UAV P4 Infrared Inspection System

UAV P4 Incorporates the Phantom 4 platform with IR Core


UAV P4 Infrared Inspection System

The SATIR UAV P4 is the ideal UAV Drone to carry out thermal surveys for powerline inspections.
The UAV P4 is based on the phantom 4 platform which is portable and integrates with SATR infrared cores. It supports video signal and point to point and point to multi points mode. It has ultra-low delay ≤10ms. 16 Channels are available as an optional and it has strong anti-interference capability. The P4 drone has a high-power image transmitter which has a transmission distance of 5km with it’s high-gain antenna. It has a detector resolution of 640x480 which will deliver very high-quality images to the end-user. The temperature measurement range is from -20°C~ +150°C and has temperature measurement accuracy of ±2°C ~ + 2%. The video is recorded in 16-bit full radiometric with temperature data and saves on the SD card.  The P4 also has a 2MP HD digital camera which is useful for comparing thermal data.

UAV and drones will from time to time suffer from vibration and shaking which may disrupts the image quality. The SATIR UAV P4 maintains stability as it has a two-axis servo head augmentation system. This ensures the thermal imaging core is stable throughout the filming process and guarantees the best effect of temperature observations.

The UAV P4 drone has the option of GPS positioning with real-time control of the UAV. The GPS positioning system has a short start-up time and has high positioning accuracy. It starts in 10 seconds and provides location information in real-time which is an ideal for the user as they can be in control.
