FLIR® Hadron™

Pre-Integrated RGB / Thermal Module

The FLIR® Hadron™ is SWaP+C optimized RGB/Thermal module designed for simplicity and performance. This light weight, low power, compact form factor includes a 12MP RGB camera, Boson thermal camera (with shutter), complete integration of IMU and can operate at up to 60 Hz. Hadron’s design ensuring maximum battery life and flight time, especially for small airframes.


View thermal and HD color images in flight. Ideal for inspection, locate and identify subjects in low light and dark conditions.


High resolution output designed for smaller class airframes. Low profile design enables flexible positioning on the airframe and SWaP to maintain longer air time.


Reduce engineering and exploratory costs with this ready-out-of-the-box solution from a single source supplier.
