Hexagon US Federal announced a collaboration with senseFly, an AgEagle company, the global leader in fixed-wing mapping drones and tactical mapping specialists, and Tough Stump Technologies to bring the latest ARTEMIS solution to market. Bringing together cutting-edge Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) from senseFly, laptops with the GEEP platform fully loaded with imagery and other mission data from Hexagon US Federal, as well as extensive support and training from Tough Stump Technologies, the Aerial Reconnaissance Tactical Edge Mapping Imagery System (ARTEMIS) is a first-of-its-kind integrated offering that allows operators to respond quickly, safely and with confidence. 

ARTEMIS is a turnkey kit designed to rapidly collect and analyze high-resolution imagery, filling critical gaps in situational awareness and intelligence collection. Featuring a 17.2-mile range (one way) and up to 90-minute flight time, ARTEMIS is suitable for tactical military operations, disaster response, public safety, and humanitarian assistance missions  

In addition to the eBee sUAS, the ARTEMIS solution includes Google Earth Enterprise Platform (GEEP) equipped laptops, containing custom globes of mission AOIs built from satellite imagery and other geospatial intelligence and forms the backdrop for the eBee TAC-collected imagery. GEEP provides an intuitive interface for visualization and planning, integration with mobile situational awareness tools such as ATAK, and enables ARTEMIS to operate in disconnected environments. 

“We’re excited to be working with Hexagon US Federal and Tough Stump Technologies. Together we have developed a forward-thinking solution that is unlike anything else on the market today. Harnessing the advanced capabilities of the eBee TAC, ARTEMIS allows users to cover large expanses of terrain quickly and efficiently – even in remote areas that are difficult to access.” 

Gilles Labossière, CEO, senseFly

The fully NDAA-compliant eBee TAC weighs just 1.6 kg (3.5 lbs), features a unique digital camouflage (“digicam”) skin for increased stealth during missions and can be rapidly deployed from assembly to hand-launch in just three minutes and operated by one person in the field for added agility. 

“We are very proud of our partnership with senseFly and Tough Stump Technologies in building and deploying the ARTEMIS solution. It’s inspiring to see what a difference ARTEMIS makes in providing organizations with the ability to develop reliable, detailed situational awareness at the tactical edge,” comments Tammer Olibah, CEO and President, Hexagon US Federal.

Jarrett Heavenston, co-founder/CEO at Tough Stump Technologies adds, “There’s been a gap in situational awareness knowledge in the defense and disaster relief sectors for many years now. Other UAVs, like small planes or satellites, cannot capture as many details as a drone, which puts operators at a disadvantage in the field. Now, with ARTEMIS, there is access to a sophisticated, end-to-end offering for the first time that will be a game-changer for these industries which need a higher-grade of aerial intelligence.”
