Intro eBee Geo

Field-ready and easy to use

Features

Survey and map more for less

Feature 1

RGB optimized camera

eBee Geo comes with the senseFly S.O.D.A., a photogrammetry camera built for drone applications. It captures sharp aerial images to produce georeferenced orthomosaics, digital surface models (DSM) and point clouds.

Why eBee Geo

Affordable technology

eBee Geo is a perfect entry into surveying and mapping for cost-conscious service providers, surveyors and GIS professionals with specific project requirements.

 

We set out to capture all these requirements into one affordable fixed-wing mapping drone with an RGB camera, to help you map smarter and optimize the ROI of your operations.

 

Reliable

Trusted

eBee Geo is backed by our industry-leading operational safety, even in the most complex projects.

 

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) drone registration data from 2016 to 2021 confirms that the eBee is the most used fixed-wing drone in the United States.

Reduced delays and repairs

Easily make repairs in the field without stopping your project. The modular design of eBee Geo reduces downtime and maintenance costs.

 

If maintenance is needed, get your eBee Geo drone serviced locally, thanks to our global network of authorized service centers.

Safety eBee Geo

Safety

Impact tests proved safe flying around people.

No hard plastic part nor motor in the front part.

Safety protocols integrated into the flight planning software.

Expanded capabilities

Expanded capabilities

eBee Geo complements your surveying toolkit, elevating your professional capabilities. These are some benefits that the safe and reliable technology of fixed-wings brings to your operations.

Regulatory advantages

eBee Geo users benefit from operational regulation advantages not available to heavier drones above 2 kg / 4.4 lbs.

Advanced operations

eBee Geo BVLOS flights are approved in Brazil, and Operations Over People (OOP) in Canada. These advanced operations are essential to expanding your mapping capabilities.

Expanded capabilities

The eBee Geo regulatory advantages and the fact that it is ready for advanced operations demonstrate that the platform is reliable and can easily perform complex missions.

Customer Reviews

eBee Geo customer reviews

What our users say

“To get even close to the same level of detail as the drone, using terrestrial methods, it would probably take a single surveyor upwards of two to three weeks.”

“The eBee allowed us to map in extremely harsh environments where it would have been impossible with conventional surveying. This meant the system paid for itself in one flight.”

“The original goal was to capture high-res still images to check for defects, but when they realized we could get a 3D model – in effect a digital database of a structure – with the exact geometry of the object, that was something they were really excited about.”

S.O.D.A.

S.O.D.A. (Sensor Optimized for Drone Applications) is the first senseFly camera built for professional drone use, and has quickly become the reference sensor in its field.

eBee Geo equipped with the S.O.D.A. camera allows you to capture sharp aerial images across different light condition to produce detailed orthomosaics, digital surface models and point clouds.

Plan your mission

Planning your project is as easy as selecting the flight block type and the area you want to map, and the software generates the eBee Geo flight plan. You can choose your mission settings, like GSD and overlap, or let eMotion automatically optimize them.

Monitor and adjust your flight

From automating single flights to flying multiple eBees simultaneously, eMotion’s 3D environment helps you control the drone’s trajectory. You can easily activate the safety features in a single click or adjust the flight path and landing spot during flight.

Gather data with geotagged images

eMotion includes all the functionality you need to collect the geospatial data you require, such as automatically geotagged images, custom background maps, safety features, live air traffic, RTK / PPK, and weather forecast.

Export your mission for post-processing

The drone managing software connects wirelessly to your UAS, industry cloud solutions, base stations, and airspace data. Furthermore, eMotion prepares the images for post-processing software, reducing third-party software compatibility issues.
