Fort Myers, Fla. — December 1, 2023 – Florida Drone Supply, a leading provider of cutting-edge drone solutions, is proud to announce the successful delivery of 10 SIRAS drones from Teledyne FLIR to The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). This milestone initiates the FWC inaugural drone program, selecting the SIRAS via Florida Drone Supply to pioneer this groundbreaking venture.
The Florida FWC recognizes the pivotal role that drone technology plays in enhancing conservation efforts, wildlife monitoring, resource management, as well as search and rescue efforts. By collaborating with Florida Drone Supply and selecting Teledyne FLIR SIRAS drones, FWC aims to elevate its capabilities and usher in a new era of efficiency and precision in its conservation initiatives.
"We are thrilled to support The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on its journey to implement a drone program for the first time," said, Michael McVay, CEO, Florida Drone Supply. "Drones equipped with advanced visible-thermal imaging technologies, such as the Teledyne FLIR SIRAS, have the potential to revolutionize wildlife monitoring and conservation practices and provide a level of technology that can be deployed on rescue missions along with aerial surveillance. We are confident that our collaboration will contribute significantly to FWC's mission of preserving Florida's diverse ecosystems."
The Teledyne FLIR SIRAS drone offers the best thermal image quality in its class, with a dual thermal-visible payload. It has quick-start capabilities as the drone is not subject to geofencing, features hot-swappable batteries that can be replaced in seconds to extend the mission, and is data secure as it neither connects to Wi-Fi nor requires an online account to fly or access its data. SIRAS will empower FWC to conduct more efficient and accurate surveys, monitor wildlife populations, and respond swiftly to environmental challenges.
"Teledyne FLIR is proud to be part of this important initiative with Florida Drone Supply and The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission," said Kelly Brodbeck, product management executive, Teledyne FLIR. "The SIRAS provides unparalleled situational awareness, data accuracy, and security, making it an ideal choice for conservation and wildlife management applications."
The collaboration* between Florida Drone Supply, Teledyne FLIR, and The FWC represents a significant step forward in integrating drone technology into conservation practices. As FWC embraces this innovative approach, it sets a precedent for other organizations seeking to leverage the benefits of drones for environmental preservation, wildlife management, and law enforcement efforts.
