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...

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.
