FLIR Vue and Vue Pro uncooled thermal imaging cameras operating at 30Hz (NTSC), or 25Hz (PAL) with a resolution of up to 640x512 are export-controlled by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Validated export licenses must be obtained from the U.S. Department of Commerce prior to export or re-export of such devices outside of the United States. FLIR employs a team of trade compliance professionals that understand the export rules and regulations, and can assist our customers with their export questions and issues. In circumstances whereby FLIR delivers a camera to a customer in the U.S. who intends to export or re-export the FLIR camera outside of the United States, whether or not the camera is integrated into another product, it is the customer’s responsibility to apply for the required export license from the appropriate department of the U.S. government. Diversion contrary to U.S. law is prohibited.
Note that there are several countries to which the export of thermal imaging cameras is prohibited under any circumstances, regardless of the camera resolution or video update rate. These countries are Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Syria, Crimea – Region of Ukraine, and the Russian Industry Sector. Export policies governing the export of thermal imaging cameras are established by the U.S. government, and in order to comply with the policy requirements, FLIR in turn must ensure that its customers agree to these conditions.
Full-Rate FLIR Vue / Vue Pro Thermal Video Cameras
The Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) is 6A003.b.4.b for FLIR Vue and Vue Pro cameras operating at 30Hz (NTSC), or 25Hz (PAL). Two forms are required in order for FLIR to apply to the Department of Commerce for the purpose of obtaining a validated export license for full-rate video thermal imaging cameras with 640x512 or lower resolution: a BIS-711; and FLIR’s Transaction Information form. Also refer to the FLIR Export Fact Sheet for FLIR Vue and Vue Pro, 640 and 336. Please direct any questions or concerns regarding the export status of FLIR’s OEM products to email@example.com.
Slow-Rate FLIR Vue / Vue Pro Thermal Video Cameras
ECCN 6A003.b.4.b (see Full-Rate Thermal Video, above) does not control imaging cameras having a maximum video update rate equal to or less than 9 Hz. The ECCN for ≤ 9Hz (slow-video) thermal cameras is 6A993. Thermal imaging cameras with video update rates ≤ 9Hz may be exported outside of the United States without an export license, except to the embargoed countries Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Crimea – Region of Ukraine, and the Russian Industry Sector. However, under no circumstances can thermal imaging cameras be used in the design, development, production, or use of nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons, regardless of frame rate.
FLIR offers Vue and Vue Pro, 640 and 336 thermal imaging cameras in slow-rate video (≤ 9Hz) versions. For NTSC, the slow video update rate is 7.5Hz, and for PAL, the slow video update rate is 8.3Hz.
The only requirement imposed by the U.S. government is to collect certain information for cameras shipped outside the U.S. To comply with this requirement, FLIR processes a Transaction Information form for sales of slow video cameras. Also refer to the FLIR Export Fact Sheet for FLIR Vue and Vue Pro, 640 and 336. Please direct any questions or concerns regarding the export status of FLIR’s OEM products firstname.lastname@example.org.
FLIR Vue is an affordable thermal camera customized to give sUAS operators all of the thermal imaging capability you need at a price you can handle. Small, lightweight, affordable and easy to integrate, FLIR Vue is a snap to install and get in the air. Simply use a GoPro-compatible 10-pin mini-USB cable to give the camera 5 volts of power and get analog thermal video out to your OSD or video transmitter, and you’re ready to fly. FLIR Vue's light weight won’t drag down your flight times or throw off your aircraft’s center of gravity.
