Blue UAS registered by U.S. DoD

eBee TAC Government and Public Safety are the first fixed-wing approved drones to be added to the Blue UAS Cleared List by the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) for procurement by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and government agencies without an DoD exception to operate. 

Why - Easy to use

Easy to use

Operated by one person

Easy to use, easy to train. eBee TAC Public Safety can be operated by one person.

Rugged transport case

Easily transported in a rugged transport case suitable for many weather conditions.

Easy maintenance

Maintained without requiring external support.

3 minutes deployment

Standalone and PPK deployment, 3 minutes. With RTK, 10 minutes.

Why - eMotion


Flight management software

Easy to use, with advanced features. All the functionality you need to collect and manage geospatial data to act with precision.

3D flight planning

Plan, simulate and control advanced missions in any terrain, including mountainous areas.

Mission ready

Select the area you want to map, and the software generates the optimized flight plan. Automated flight and landing.

Live flight plan change

Easily hold the drone in position, adjust the flight path and/or the landing spot during flight.

Multi-drone operations

Fly up to 4 drones at the same time, all controlled from 1 ground control station.

Offline planning

Fly in disconnected environments thanks to offline background maps and elevation data.

Optimized modes

Horizontal, corridor, point of interest (POI), multiple or fully custom mission blocks.

“Being able to adjust or change the flight plan with eMotion during the flight is one of the most valuable features to us. For example, we recently had to do a mission with our eBee TAC near an aid and rescue helicopter that had 7 minutes to take off in case of an emergency. With eMotion, we were able to clear the helicopter flight area in a couple of minutes, avoiding any potential risk.”

Rugged and durable solution

Drone underbody skin made of durable Curv® Polypropylene thermoplastic composite. A shock-absorbent construction that endures continuous linear landings without damaging the drone, even in harsh terrain.


eBee TAC Public Safety has a modular design that allows easy maintenance and fast repairs in the field.

NDAA compliant

eBee TAC is compliant to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of the U.S. federal law, an essential requirement to prevent maliciously hacking.


The drone components, hardware and software, are not from any of the blacklisted companies or countries, and the connectable solution has been proven cyber-secure.


Post-processing compatible

Post-processing compatibility

Once the data is collected by the drone, the images are post-processed with a wide range of compatible software to generate the 2D and 3D maps.


What our users say

eBee TAC Public Safety reviews

“It is the only collection platform organic to SFABs and has proven a critical enabler for tactical advise and assist efforts.”

“We have a quadcopter, but it doesn’t fit our requirements. We need much more coverage to map large areas, and we get that with the eBee TAC and the S.O.D.A. 3D camera. So for us, eBee has no competition. It is the only drone that allows us to do our work and get the outputs we need.”

“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.”
