Drone company DJI is looking to expand into the commercial sector with the release of its Zenmuse XT2 thermal imaging camera and payload software development kit. The thermal imaging camera was developed in partnership with FLIR Systems and builds upon the original Zenmuse XT first released in 2015. Much like its predecessor, the Zenmuse XT2offers up side-by-side visual and thermal imaging with a focus on emergency services and disaster recovery. However, the camera features QuickTrack mode, which centers the camera on a selected area, while HeatTrack mode automatically detects the hottest object in view.

DJI's new SDK (Software Development Kit) is the companies second new push into the commercial space as it allows startups and gear manufacturers the ability to develop payloads specific to customer needs. The platform has been described as powerful, flexible and standardized, and provides an almost unlimited potential for commercial drones.
