Autel Robotics looks to be readying to launch a new thermal payload for its fixed wing drone, the Dragonfish DG-L35T. The news comes as the mysterious DG-L35T hit the FCC’s database within the last week.
Looking at the information we have available to use, in the form of a product label and outline drawing of the product itself, we are able to tell what the new payload will be.
The label gives us the most valuable information, with the name of the payload, DG-L35T. DG tells us it’s for its Dragonfish series of fixed wing drones. Looking at L35T, we can tell by cross-referencing with previous payloads with the same naming scheme, DG-L20T and DG-L50T. L means it will have a laser range finder module, 35 means it will have an RGB sensor with 35x optical zoom, and the T means it will have a thermal sensor.
- L = laser range finder
- 35 = RGB sensor with 35x optical zoom
- T = thermal sensor
The diagram doesn’t tell us much but does allow us to get a better understanding of the shape, which is very similar to the already released DG-L20T.
