Moving out of the near IR from the last post, we go into the far infrared. This is footage shot with a 40g, uncooled, 8-14um spectral band camera. Half the size of a GoPro and perfect for mounting on a small flying machine!

This is a nice Little IR Camera!  How much do they cost?!

Whats the actual name of the camera? Definitely want to get one

There's a government customer with deep pockets.

We're working to make this available to the community.  Please stay tuned on dates and pricing.  It's still 4 digits, but it's not 5.  ;)

Jack, the future of all this drone stuff is in regular everyday services, that don't require military level budgets!

Is that a "C" mount lens?

Comment by Jesse on May 28, 2013 at 6:25pm

John C: do those 4 digits include the 2 that come after the decimal point? lol

You've definitely got my interest.

I'd like to know more specs on it (resolution, sensitivity, etc) and, like everybody else, what it's going to cost.

I have a really nice ranging application for it, but I don't have a "FLIR" sized budget.

personally over $1000 i would get a FLIR and covert it for FPV, but I have no reason to fly in the dark -)

Here is some more details on the specs:

This isn't going to be unobtanium, you know 3DR is about real-world approachable tech.
