eBee TAC ™

Blue UAS Registered since 9th March 2022

eBee TAC is a hand-launched fixed-wing tactical mapping and imagery collection UAS that 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 solution can be operated by one person, easily transported in a military standard transport case, and maintained without requiring external support. The data gathered is sharable locally.

Examples of data generated:

  • Detailed 3D models
  • VR simulations
  • Multispectral maps
  • Thermal maps
  • Terrain and surface models
  • Orthomosaic  maps

Mission Ready UAS

eBee TAC is Blue UAS registered, NDAA compliant.

Easy flight planning, 3 minutes deployment, can be transported and operated by one person. It has the capability to integrate with situation awareness tools such as ATAK.

eBee TAC has a Pixel Camouflage specifically designed to reduce its visibility in the sky. Moreover, the drone’s underbody skin is made of Curv® Polypropylene thermoplastic composite making it a rugged and durable solution.

Light Weight 3.6 lb

Operate safely due to eBee TAC being lightweight 3.6 lb (1.6 kg). eBee TAC has a modular design that allows easy maintenance and fast repairs in the field.

Up to 90 Mins Flight

Efficiently map up to 1,235 ac (500 ha) while flying at 400 ft (120 meters). eBee TAC unlocks a maximum flight time of up to 90 min, making it the perfect drone for covering large areas.

Cyber-Secure

Radio Data Link Encryption AES-256.

Drone Log File Suppression.

Silent Radio Mission.

Data and Communication Control.

Integratable with Google Earth Enterprise Platform.

Acoustically undetectable at 120 ft (40 mts).

Optimized Cameras

With its mission directed swappable sensor suite, eBee TAC allows you to collect data that can be immediately used via the encrypted SD card for analysis and decision making. Camera options include RGB, 3D, multispectral and thermal payloads.

“Traditional mapping tools, such as quadcopters or short-range surveillance drones, lack the capabilities to perform mid-range mapping reconnaissance tasks, particularly in environments that are difficult to navigate. Together with our partners, we have listened to the needs of field personnel to ensure that the eBee TAC is purpose-built for the tactical mapping demands of defense applications to improve mission effectiveness in a variety of terrains.”

Michael O’Sullivan, Managing Director of senseFly.

Achieve Absolute Accuracy with Available RTK/PPK

From high-density point clouds to 3D meshes and georeferenced orthomosaics, quality data is critical to every job.

With the on-demand RTK/PPK capabilities of eBee TAC, you can gather data with ease while maintaining high precision across every step of your workflow. eBee TAC achieves an absolute accuracy down to 0.6 in (1.5 cm), without the need for ground control points (GCPs).

And since eBee TAC is compatible with the industry’s leading base stations, you can fly knowing your connectivity can take you anywhere.
