Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal is an all-in-one quadcopter thermal imaging solution specifically designed for small construction businesses, thermal inspection professionals and public safety services.
This solution is enriching Parrot Professional range of business solutions launched earlier this year with Parrot Disco-Pro AG & Parrot Bebop-Pro 3D Modeling, and more recently with ParrotBluegrass.
Indeed, 2017 has already been a significant and busy year for Parrot with the launch in Q2 2017 of Parrot Professional range ( that gathers its consumer and commercial technologies, giving access of drone intelligence to small business and independent users) and just last month refreshes to the Parrot Consumer range (Parrot Mambo FPV & Parrot Bebop 2 Power).
With Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal, Parrot is once again affirming its commitment to innovating solutions for business, with UAV’s, sensors and software carrying a new level of precision data which can be plugged into existing industry workflows. Parrot Business Solutions is changing the way numerous industries work and helping improve ROI, efficiency and productivity. Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal is a multipurpose quadcopter that allows construction and rescue services to safely carry out inspections with its 2 embedded cameras: video camera and thermal
With its front full HD video camera this solution helps the construction user or rescue service to visually monitor a structure or a specific area, while the thermal camera enables to get precise and detailed thermal images thanks to the dedicated FreeFlight Thermal app.
Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal is a compact user friendly integrated solution; it is easy to set up, easy to fly and easy to repair. Enabling the user to live stream or record videos and take pictures of buildings, roofs, solar panels or specific areas in visual or thermal image mode. Quickly providing safe and highly accurate information and data identifying thermal loss or thermal activity supporting key decision making.
Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal solution includes:
• A compact quadcopter with a Full HD stabilized front facing camera, a FLIR ONE® Pro thermal
camera and a 32Gb memory
• Parrot FreeFlight Thermal app, which innovatively transmits and analyses images captured by
the quadcopter’s cameras
• A long range remote control Parrot Skycontroller 2
Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal is based on the all new Parrot Bebop 2 Power quadcopter, which has been modified to
benefit professionals. Lightweight and compact, the quadcopter can be easily carried on any site, and is ready to operate in minutes. Thanks to the Parrot Skycontroller 2’s long range, the pilot can control the drone very precisely from a safe distance from a hot spot without any risk. Images are captured by the Parrot Bebop-Pro’s Full HD 14MP front camera and the thermal camera positioned in a dedicated module at the back of the drone.
Parrot FreeFlight Thermal: Analyses and reveals thermal contrasts
In addition to the access of the Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal settings and flight parameters, the FreeFlight Thermal app streams images from both cameras (front and thermal) directly to a connected tablet. At any time during flight, the pilot can switch from a thermal image to a HD image, record video footage, and store captured content to the drone’s 32GB memory.
Lightweight (36.5 gr) and compact, the thermal camera is equipped with two sensors. This includes a RGB sensor (1440x1080p), capturing what the drone can visibly see, and a thermal sensor (160x120p), which measures temperature differences. Data from both sensors are combined by the FreeFlight Thermal app to create precise and detailed images. Edge surrounding details are highlighted in the image, areas with thermal loose or hot spots
can be immediately identified. Touching one part of the connected tablet’s screen will show the estimated thermal temperature captured by the sensors.
3 imaging thermal setting modes* are available:
- Standard: Thermal images, from red (160°) to blue (10°) scale are displayed, for quick
identification of thermal losses.
- Dynamic: The thermal color scale is adapted to the ambient temperature. This allows the user
to benefit from an accurate view of the thermal losses. High temperatures are highlighted in
red, and cooler temperatures are displayed in blue.
- Hotspot: This mode is adapted for fire safety professionals and emergency search and
rescue specialists. Only
Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal pack is available during November 2017 at professional drone resellers,
specialist construction resellers and at www.parrot.com.
