French drone manufacturer Parrot unveiled a new mapping and surveying drone

A division of French drone manufacturer Parrot sensefly, unveiled a new modular drone - ebee X for sale

It looks like a useful fixed-wing aircraft that should provide a rugged and adaptable solution for a range of mapping applications.

Fixed-wing flight and consumer aerial photography haven’t been a match made in heaven. But when it comes to mapping huge swathes of terrain and making survey flights as efficient as possible, fixed-wing is the way to go.

As such, the eBee X follows on from senseFly’s eBee SQ, Albris and eBee Classic models. It promises to be more suitable for harsh environments, offer longer flight times and greater adaptability than its predecessors.

The eBee X’s adaptability is enabled by a number of new camera options. It’s also backward compatible with some of Parrot/senseFly’s older imaging tools.

However, perhaps the most notable feature of senseFly’s new eBee X platform is how long it can stay n the air. The drone comes with an endurance extension feature that takes its flight time to 90 minutes and gives coverage to up to 500 ha (1,235 ac) at 400 ft (122 m).

Added to that is the ease with which it can be launched and landed. Users simply have to toss it into the air to get things started. The eBee X’s ‘Steep Landing’ tech means it can safely land in a confined area, while its designed to be rugged enough to withstand crash-style landings on any surface.

eBee X – New Camera Options

The eBee X includes a range of new camera options designed to suit every mapping job, from land surveying and topographic mapping to urban planning, crop mapping, thermal mapping, environmental monitoring and more. These cameras include:

The senseFly S.O.D.A. 3D

A unique drone photogrammetry camera with a one-inch sensor, which changes orientation during flight to capture three images (two oblique, one nadir) every time, instead of just one, for a much wider field of view. The result is stunning digital 3D reconstructions in vertically-focused environments—such as urban areas, open pit mines and coastlines—over larger areas than quadcopter drones can achieve. senseFly S.O.D.A. 3D is optimized for quick, robust image processing with Pix4Dmapper

The senseFly Aeria X

a compact drone photogrammetry camera with APS-C sensor. This rugged innovation offers an ideal blend of size, weight and DSLR-like image quality. Thanks in part to its built-in Smart Exposure technology, it provides outstanding image detail and clarity, in virtually all light conditions, allowing operators to map for more hours per day than ever before.

The senseFly Duet T

a dual-camera thermal mapping rig, which lets mapping professionals create geo-accurate thermal maps and digital surface models quickly and easily. The Duet T includes both a high-resolution (640 x 512 px) thermal infrared camera and a senseFly S.O.D.A. RGB camera with one-inch sensor. Both image sources can be accessed as required, while the rig’s built-in Camera Position Synchronisation feature works in sync with Pix4Dmapper photogrammetry software (optional) to simplify the map reconstruction process.

The eBee X is also compatible with the Parrot Sequoia+ multispectral camera for agriculture, the senseFly S.O.D.A. drone photogrammetry camera and senseFly Corridor for simple linear mapping.

A leap forward for mapping tech

The eBee X is a giant leap forward for mapping technology and underscores senseFly’s position as the leader in the fixed-wing drone market, no matter what type of project a professional is undertaking, the eBee X has the coverage, data and accuracy capabilities needed to get the job done.

4 rotors plant protection UAV 10KGS agriculture drone sprayer

Intelligent Agriculture is the trend of all over the world. And the intelligent drone act as a important role in this world plan.

Agriculture spraying drone can replace the traditional pesticide sprayer and it's speed is 40times of the traditional sprayer. It will save 90% water and 30%-40% pesticide. Small droplet diameter make the pesticide more well-distribute and improve the effect. At the same time, it will make the people faraway from the pesticide and reduce the pesticide remain of the crop.
