Data provided by:
When a flash flood devastated several infrastructures in the United Arab Emirates, Falcon Eye Drones (FEDS) used their fleet of eBee X to map 65 km2 in two days. The data collected was used by Al Ain Municipality to do an assessment of the situation and coordinate the allocation of resources.
In the 65 km2, there was a linear site, Al Khaznah, a major highway connecting Al Ain to the capital Abu Dhabi, requiring a massive corridor map of 50 km2 long and 500 m wide.
As the area was inaccessible, FEDS used six eBee X fixed-wing drones with the Corridor camera and the customized corridor mapping feature in eMotion flight planning software to quickly survey and map all eight flood-affected sites.
Thanks to the eBee X’s flight time and large coverage, the mission took 30% less time than a quadcopter and required 50% fewer flights and batteries.
