  • What is mT-Panoptes
    mT-Panoptes is an inspection system designed for thermal aerial surveys using small RPAS (Remoltely Piloted Aircraft Systems). The system is composed by a 2 channel device, an Electronic Control Unit (ECU), a Ground Control Station (GCS) and the Solar Inspector (its software application) and drives you from data acquistion to Final Report generation. mT-Panoptes has been conceived to use small drones to inspect photovoltaic plants, but can be employed in a wider application range (everywhere georeferenced thermal imagery is needed).

    mT-Panoptes top configuration uses as TIR sensor a Flir Vue Pro 640 with a 13 mm lens. The device can be also configures with lower resolution thermal cores, such as Flir Vue Pro 320.

mT-Panoptes top configuration: the TIR sensor is a Flir TAU 640 with a 13 mm lens the device can be configured with lower resolution thermal cores, such as Flir TAU 320 mT-Panoptes is coupled with a dedicated cart, designed to be mounted on various RPA systems
