This advanced and scalable drone for agriculture is perfect to tackle the high demands of commercial agriculture projects and big farms, in all kinds of environments.

Customer Reviews

eBee Ag customer reviews

What our customers say

“There are a lot of $5,000 UAVs available, but they don’t fly themselves so they’re basically fancy remote controlled helicopters. With the senseFly eBee Ag you get a complete solution—take a couple minutes to plan a mission, launch it by hand (no catapults), and the eBee does the rest. It flies, takes images, figures out the wind and lands right where you want it to. There’s nothing more portable, powerful and easy to use.”

“The eBee Ag is our main tool for precision agriculture. We have found it a remarkable tool for identifying issues within crops before problems become too severe. When the results from the eBee Ag are coupled with targeted soil testing, exceptionally accurate prescriptions can be made. The eBee’s simplicity and quick results are what have made it so valuable to us.”

“Thanks to the eBee’s multispectral maps we have managed to reduce our operational and logistical costs by 30%, through being able to define different sugarcane harvest zones based on the crop’s quality in different regions. That work resulted in an increase of 15% in the value of the product we sold to our customers.”

Camera

Multispectral + RGB

eBee Ag Camera

Duet M

The Duet M is a dual-purpose RGB and 4-band multispectral camera for field mapping. By combining both types of imagery, users can quickly spot troublesome areas in high-resolution RGB and gain critical NDVI data invisible to the naked eye — all in one flight.

The data captured with this drone camera is transformed into geo-accurate multispectral maps, digital surface models (DSM) and vegetation indices such as NDVI, NDRE, LCI, and more.

Application example

Application example

Area 1

This image compares the satellite map vs. the RGB and NDVI data collected with the drone. The NDVI dataset showcases the crop emergence stage, percentage and planting orientation.

Area 2

Zone ready to be planted. It shows the presence of weeds, and farmers can choose to apply a pre-plant herbicide application for control if necessary to specific infested spots.

Area 3

Showcases the post-emergence vigor of the crop, such as the quality of the stand, planting failures, stand health, and allows farmers to see both problematic and healthy areas.

Area 4

Allows the identification of any specific problem spots or regions in the field.

Learn More

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 Ag 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, 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.
