eBee SQ

The advanced agricultural drone

From drone to action: capture actionable crop data across four multispectral bands, plus RGB imagery, spanning hundreds of acres in a single flight.

4 reasons to choose the eBee SQ

More precise

The eBee SQ‘s precise, calibrated multispectral imagery provides reliable insights into the real health of your crops

Larger coverage

The eBee SQ can cover hundreds of acres in a single flight for extremely efficient crop monitoring and analysis

Workflow compatible

The eBee SQ is compatible with your existing FMIS, ag machinery and workflow. There is no need to reinvent how you work

Affordable

The eBee SQ is available at a low, value-packed price that fits your farm or agronomy business’ budget

More precise crop data

The eBee SQ is built around Parrot’s ground-breaking Sequoia camera.

 
This fully-integrated and highly precise multispectral sensor captures data across four non-visible bands, plus visible RGB imagery1—in just one flight.

  • Highly precise
  • 4 multispectral bands
  • + RGB data
  • In 1 flight

With this precise data you can generate accurate index maps and use these to create high quality prescriptions—carefully optimising crop treatments to improve production quality, boost yields & reduce costs.

1 Suitable for gaining a quick visual overview of a field. Not suitable for creating survey-quality orthomosaics & point clouds/DSMs for 3D data analysis.

Sequoia camera

Larger coverage for greater efficiency

The eBee SQ can cover hundreds of acres in a single flight—up to 10 times more ground than quadcopter drones—for extremely efficient crop monitoring and analysis. This means fewer flights in total, for less time spent collecting data and more time acting on it.

  • Larger coverage
  • Fewer flight
  • Less time collecting data
  • More time acting on it
