This article highlights the current practical capabilities of visual and thermal imaging UAV cameras, which allows to effectively and safely identify potentially dangerous objects that may threaten the object of information activities or the safety of citizens or critical infrastructure of Ukraine. Based on many years of flight experience and training specialists for private and public institutions, it was decided to compare the quality characteristics and capabilities of detecting, recognizing, and identifying objects using modern uncrewed vehicles. To ensure public safety and control of the territory, there are models with multiple optical zooms, which from a distance of 500 m allow recognizing the license plate of the car, or versions with a thermal imager, which in the middle of the night can help see the car, the temperature difference against other cars, and the fact that a person comes out of it. Test flights were performed at altitudes from 10 to 100 m, in the open, without bushes, trees, or obstacles. Depending on the camera model and weather conditions, the figures obtained may differ significantly. The main advantages and differences in the quality of visual and thermal imaging cameras for UAVs are described. The quality of the obtained image is demonstrated on real examples and under the same conditions. Detailed visual cameras have been analyzed. According to Johnson’s criteria, several requirements have been developed for quadcopter imaging of objects such as a car and a person from different heights. A work plan has been formed for further research to prepare and provide practical recommendations for pilots who use this technique in protecting the territory of information activities and during service in the air reconnaissance units of the security forces of Ukraine.
