Over 75 minutes of flight time and purpose built for the first responder mission
Unmanned aircraft are powerful tools for a broad range of firefighting applications. For structure fires, the ability to immediately get above the scene for overwatch and situational awareness helps to keep firefighter safe. When equipped with FLIR thermal cameras, you can clearly see through smoke and identify hot spots, manage wildfire lines, and perform search and rescue missions in total darkness.
The US-1 provides over 75 minutes of flight time fully loaded with a FLIR DUO PRO thermal and visible payload. That's nearly 3X the flight time of most consumer or commercial drones, allowing you to stay on station longer.
The US-1 ground control station enables the pilot-in-command to operate without forced geo-fencing; a critical feature for first responders. The system is engineered to provide direct access to common functions without the need to open distracting menus that force the operator to take his eyes off the screen.

FLIR DUO PRO R
We recommend the FLIR DUO PRO R 640 x 512 thermal with 25° FOV lens and 4k visible payload for most medium to short range applications. The DUO PRO R delivers calibrated temperature measurement which can be useful in fire fighting applications. The visible camera offers digital zoom only, but it’s lighter than optical zoom cameras so you get the best flight duration the US-1 has to offer. For those needing the extra range performance of an optical zoom camera, we recommend the WIRIS system.
The FLIR DUO PRO R 640 x 512 pixel resolution camera is a good choice for medium to short range applications.

WIRIS LONG RANGE PAYLOAD SYSTEM
For missions that require maximum zoom capability, we recommend the WIRIS Security UAV camera system. This payload offers a Sony 30x optical zoom camera with excellent low light performance. The thermal camera has 800 x 600 resolution with a 21.2° horizontal field of view, providing the best resolution available in a UAV ready package. The thermal sensitivity and resulting image quality is better than the DUO PRO R 640 x 512.
