eBee TAC

eBee TAC
Fixed-Wing Drone

High accuracy tactical mapping solution

eBee TAC operates in disconnected environments to provide a higher-accuracy mobile solution to map and share imagery data on rapidly-shifting environments in order to analyze and act with precision. This is a Swiss made portable solution that can be transported and maintained without requiring external support.

Security

• Radio Data Link Encryption AES-256
• Drone Log File Suppression
• Silent Radio Mission
• Data and Communication Control

Special camo

eBee TAC is designed with special materials and colors in order to blend it in the environment.

Flight planning software

Easy-to-use, eMotion helps you get your drone in the air quickly while including all the functionality you need to collect and manage exactly the geospatial data you require.

Camera options

With its mission directed swappable sensor suite, eBee TAC allows you to collect data that can be immediately used via the SD card for analysis and decision making.

senseFly S.O.D.A. 3D

senseFly S.O.D.A. 3D

The senseFly S.O.D.A. 3D mapping camera is a unique innovation. This professional drone photogrammetry camera changes orientation during flight to capture three images (2 obliques, 1 nadir) every time, instead of just one, for a much wider field of view. It is optimised for quick, robust image processing with Pix4Dmapper.

What our customers say

"We use the senseFly eBee to detect undeclared buildings. Our investment was easily recovered by our first project. It takes us just a few days - from planning a mission to having all the new information in our system."

Agrim Parola Juan Pablo D

Head of the Department of Geodesy, Dirección Provincial de Catastro de Neuquén, Argentina

"The main orthophoto the drone data produced is already being used for roof print digitisation, and we’re planning to use the digital model for inundation mapping. I see drones as having great cross-sectoral potential."

Edward Anderson

Senior Technology & Innovation Specialist, The World Bank , Tanzania

"I use the eBee for 3D geomorphological and archaeological missions in very harsh conditions and it has almost never failed to accomplish its mission. Its safety protocolshigh-wind detection, ground detection, battery failure alerts etc.make sure it always comes back. More than just providing reliable machines though, senseFly has always been present for technical assistance and questions. It’s good to have a company truly interested in what people do with its machines and willing to learn from these experiences."
