The CGOET Thermal Camera is designed specifically for the following applications:
- Law Enforcement
- Identify last-touch points in pursuit
- Structure and Maintenance
- Solar Panel Inspection
- Energy loss: window, window frame and the water pipe leak
- Electrical cable/transformer/connection point inspection
- Roof Inspections for heat loss
- Waterproof/membrane inspection on roof
- Air Conditioning Leak Check
- Check the over-heating of equipment (Such as motor or transformer)
1) Adjustable Opacity:
Users are now able to choose the Opacity of the IR image over the RGB image. This feature allows cognitive detail to be visible, and allows the CGOET to display a pseudo Identification and Recognition image. This makes the camera much more useful as details are now visible through the IR stream.
The CGOET system now has common-use presets, allowing users to save valuable time in the field. Specific situations require specific settings. For example, SAR requires a specific variable; our SAR preset provides that pre-built variable that can be accessed instantaneously. Electrical leaks, certain gases from transport tankers, home energy loss, solar panel failure also require specific variables. Presets also provide users with temperature starting points for learning more about fine-tuning for specific needs. Presets may be accessed in either the Camera settings, or in the menu bar.
3) Greater Accuracy:
Readings are more accurate in the averaging ROI. We won’t see those huge fluctuations in temperature, as the new firmware is much more forgiving of spots and properly displays the average temp over a region.
Yuneec has doubled the palettes available to users, now properly matching by display, industry standard settings.
5) Missions in Low Light:
With the CGOET, pilots are now able to fly in very low light and capture amazing detail.
Thermal cameras are described and measured differently than optical cameras. Optical cameras are measured by pixels while Thermal cameras are measured by line pairs and DRI capability. “DRI” describes the three points of measurement available to a thermal imaging system.
– The ability to distinguish an object, person, or animal from the background noise, that is exhausting heat.
An example is “can you see an object of a different heat value in the detection range.”
- The ability to recognize that object, person, or animal for what it is and how it is moving. To further the example above; “can you recognize whether it’s a man or woman, child, etc”
– The level of detail found in the image, such as hands, the ability to detect a weapon, the facial features, etc.

WHAT PRODUCTS COMPETE WITH THE CGOET?
At the moment, none that directly compete. The FLIR DUO is a dual imagery camera similar in size and resolution to the CGOET, it is not a gimbal-mounted, integrated system. Currently, only custom-built systems can compete with the CGOET’s very different design. The economical thermal cameras found at sporting goods stores that take optical pictures when movement is found, are generally Detection- only thermal systems. This is the range in which the CGOET operates. It is a detection-only thermal imaging system that is ideal for separating heat mass from background clutter, provided there is a large enough temperature variance. This can be used for inspecting solar panels (heat leaks are rapidly seen through IR), roofing inspections, electrical line inspections, search/rescue, active shooter, etc.
