My first post here, and I'm going to hype my company and its products. I hope you will go easy on me - I'm assured that what we make is of interest to the DIY Drones community!

 

My company, DRS Technologies, manufactures a small Infrared Thermal camera called the Tamarisk 320.

 

The camera has a resolution of 320x240, is smaller than a golfball, weighs less than 35g and consumes <1W of power. 

For the past couple of years we have run the DRS Student Infrared Imaging Competition. The SIIC is an open-format, incentive prize competition for students who use thermal infrared imaging in a creative way.  The top project wins $10,000.  For this, the competition’s second year, there is an additional prize category for “Most Viral Video.”   This year DRS received 25 entries, of which 17 include a video for the viral competition. 

Videos range from art projects to drone projects, and all kinds of odd and novel topics in between... 

The viral video playlist is available at:

Let me know what you think.

what is the price of this IR camera ?

It is a thermal imaging camera that detects radition in the 8-12um long-wave infrared region of the spectrum. We use Infrared and Thermal Imaging interchangeably around here.

 

Full specs can be found here:

We are working details with 3D Robotics right now. It will be less than $5k.
