ITC Acquires New Aerial Viewing System to Augment sUAS Training Classes

The Infrared Training Center is excited to announce the purchase of a Command View System from Camera Motion Research, LLC to be used in sUAS training classes.  This equipment allows for the transmission of live video from an unmanned aircraft system to a control center on the ground as far as 3,000ft (914m) away.

Having the Command View System allows the instructor to demonstrate camera operation techniques and perform specific tasks such as measuring temperature, showing the effects of viewing angle and more, all while from the air.  Not only does this enhance the overall training experience, it allows for up to eight students to view the screen at a time, encouraging participation and improving engagement during flying exercises.

With the Command View System, more students can now experience the correct way to capture qualitative and quantitative thermography data in real time.  It works with a variety of instructional situations and applications too including overhead electrical, agricultural, solar panels and more.  A built-in DVR recorder captures all images and videos taken during flight which can be replayed and discussed while back in the classroom.

Look for the Command View System at upcoming sUAS Level I Thermography and Level I Public Safety Courses from the Infrared Training Center.   Registration for these classes and others is available online at or by calling ITC directly at 1-866-TRAIN-IR.
