Terms and Conditions – Participation Agreement




The 2021 Teledyne FLIR App Development Challenge is a call to app developers worldwide to compete for cool prizes by creating compelling mobile apps that use the new Teledyne FLIR Mobile SDK.  Your mobile apps can now use the power of thermal imaging to give users the power of the Sixth Sense by integrating thermal data, images, and video from Teledyne FLIR professional and consumer thermal cameras and certain METERLiNK-enabled test and measurement devices.


In order to participate in this event, you must be 18 years of age or older.

  7. Share the “release candidate” version of your app with and for review using a platform of choice (Testflight, Firebase, etc.). If needed, attach the .ipa/.apk file directly to the submission.


Challenge Finalists must create a working, native mobile application that uses the Teledyne FLIR Mobile SDK and includes features having to do with thermal imaging, using a qualified Teledyne FLIR Thermal Camera and/or a qualified Teledyne FLIR Test and Measurement device as defined on the Teledyne FLIR Mobile Developer Program page at (each an “Application”). 


Industrial Condition Monitoring — Mobile applications designed to enable the use of thermal imaging to ensure power keeps flowing, machines keep working, equipment lasts longer, and manufacturing companies avoid breakdowns that can cost thousands of dollars each minute. With a well-executed condition monitoring program, inspectors can find the initial signs of failure in machinery or electrical systems, diagnose it quickly, and complete repairs with minimal interruption (example: App to collect and annotate the temperature of electrical components and suggest actions based on trends).


Electrical Utility Industry — Mobile applications designed to streamline inspection efficiency and employee safety in power generation, transmission, and distribution. Regular temperature monitoring using thermal imaging cameras can help diagnose impending failures before they occur – minimizing the cost of repairs, maximizing equipment life, and keeping the power on for customers. Integration into existing CMMS systems is important for utility customers (example: App to help power utilities to maximize uptime and avoid service interruptions).


Building Diagnostics and Energy Efficiency — Mobile applications to help maintain the health of a facility’s envelope or enclosure. Thermal cameras can help inspectors detect issues such as missing or defective insulation, moisture buildup, water infiltration, inefficient HVAC systems, and air leaks. Documenting and reporting issues is key for this industry as they deal with insurance companies and other stakeholders (example: App to allow inspectors to collect and easily report issues to owners and insurance companies).


Connected First Responder — Mobile applications that enable first responders as individuals or groups to more effectively, efficiently, and safely do their work. Thermal imaging cameras provide powerful vision through dark environments, fog, and smoke. Situational awareness is a very powerful tool when battling fires, natural disasters, or responding to any type of emergencies (example: App to provide real-time situational awareness to first responders).


Wildcard —  An application that doesn’t fit into one of the four main categories but targets professional users and implements thermal imaging in a unique and powerful way to solve a clearly identified problem.  Wildcard apps are only eligible for the Grand Prize.


Please provide your submission materials in English. Submissions in other languages won’t be accepted.


A submitted Application must be a native application that runs on a supported iOS or Android mobile device. Applications may integrate other SDKs, APIs and data, provided the Participant is authorized to use them.


The App could be brand new or an existing app that was originally developed without thermal imaging capabilities and those are being added now


Participants own the rights to the projects they create.

Your Submission must: (a) be your (or your team or Organization’s) original work product; (b) be solely owned by you, your team, or your organization with no other person or entity having any right or interest in it; and (c) not violate the intellectual property rights or other rights including but not limited to the copyright, trademark, patent, contract, and/or privacy rights, of any other person or entity. A Participant may contract with a third party for technical assistance to create the Submission provided the Submission components are solely the Participant’s work product and the result of the Participant’s ideas and creativity, and the Participant owns all rights to them. A Participant may submit a Submission that includes the use of open-source software or hardware, provided the Participant complies with applicable open source licenses and, as part of the Submission, creates software that enhances and builds upon the features and functionality included in the underlying open-source product. By entering the Challenge you represent, warrant, and agree that your Submission meets these requirements.



A panel of Judges both from the Organizer and Client will evaluate every project considering the following criteria:


  1. How effectively the idea/solution addresses issues related to one of the four identified scenarios using Teledyne FLIR technologies or products to increase the value of the solution for the user,
  2. How the app combines multiple data points from Teledyne FLIR devices (cameras and meters),
  3. How much revenue potential the idea represents and how feasible the proposed business model would be to implement.
