NIST Drone Training, Level 1-2, Thermal Discs


Your LEVEL 1-2 kit consists of 21 high-contrast thermal discs for rapid detection in Open Lane and Wide Search scenarios. 

Thermal Discs Markers meet NIST training standards 100% to evaluate drone and pilot proficiencies.

Stop swapping out discs! These dual discs work in visible and thermal training scenarios to save you time!

  • Visible to the naked eye and thermal imager scenarios.
  • Versatile for training in daylight and darkness.
  • Requires no external power source, making them ideal for extended training sessions.
  • Each 8″-disc fits perfectly in a designated omni-training bucket.

Your 21 Discs kit includes a Landing Pad decal!

  • Full 21 Disc kit is used for 4 omni bucket training.
  • Partial Disc kit is used for 1 omni bucket training.

NIST has developed and designed a comprehensive 5-level training course to assess your drone's safety, capabilities, and proficiency.

Because thermal imagers have become an integral part of drone surveillance, training with a thermal disc is crucial.

IR.Tools has integrated a high-contrast thermal film into the design, eliminating the need to switch between visible and thermal discs. This dual visible/thermal disc fulfills all training requirements to save valuable time and streamline your training sessions.

LEVEL 1: Open Lane - Basic proficiency and safety check

LEVEL 2: Open Lane - Maneuvering around ground objects

LEVEL 3: Open Lane - Maneuvering around objects while controlling zoom and exposure

LEVEL 4: Obstructed Lane - Control zoom and exposure while maneuvering around close objects.

LEVEL 5: Confined Lane - Search room to room while controlling zoom and exposure.

"The partnership between The Regional Training Center and IR.Tools have produced a new and exciting tool for public safety. The goal is to further enhance training and test camera capabilities in thermal and IR environments using NIST training standards.

–Tim Martin, UAS Training, The Regional Training Center for Law Enforcement
