Parrot launches ANAFI USA: a drone “designed for first responders”
Parrot, a European drone group, has announced ANAFI USA, a drone “built to meet the demands of first responders.” Featuring a 32x zoom, 4K HDR video and thermal imaging capabilities, ANAFI USA is an “ultraportable, secure and durable aerial camera platform.” The zoom image is coupled with images from ANAFI USA’s FLIR Boson camera. This enables operators to detect hot spots with the thermal camera, while the visual camera allows them to view people and other important details from up to two kilometres away.
According to the company, it takes less than 55 seconds to unfold the drone, turn it on, establish the secure radio link and take off.
Additionally, compatible with mapping software Pix4Dreact, ANAFI USA allows first responders to transform images into precise 2D maps on a laptop.
