Carried in a backpack, operated by one person, and deployed in 3 minutes, eBee TAC Public Safety is a photogrammetry drone that provides 2D, 3D and thermal aerial data over large areas.
Background container color: Need to be able to change to any color
CTA capability: CTA button is optional… Admin needs to be able to add or remove
Efficiently map up to 500 ha / 1,235 ac while flying at 120 m / 400 ft.
With a flight time of 90 minutes and a flight range of 55 km / 34 mi, eBee TAC Public Safety can cover large and inaccessible areas.
Thanks to its lightweight, eBee TAC Public Safety, can be safely operated under many regulatory frameworks. Moreover, it has the best ratio energy/MTOW compared to heavier VTOL drones, offering better energy efficiency.
eBee TAC Public Safety is compatible with a wide range of interchangeable photogrammetry cameras that capture reliable aerial imagery – from 3D models to orthomosaics – to suit every mapping job.
With the RTK / PPK optional software, the public safety drone achieves an absolute accuracy down to 1.5 cm / 0.6 in, without ground control points (GCPs).
We have anticipated upcoming drone regulatory frameworks in the U.S. and Europe by having the eBee TAC Public Safety ready with Remote ID identification system approved by the FAA.
eBee drones are the only approved UAVs to fly Operations Over People (OOP) in the U.S.
Approved to run Operations Over People (OOP) in Canada.
Operators free to fly 30 meters from uninvolved people.
Benefit from simplified SORA approval process thanks to M2 Ground Risk Mitigation.
eBee TAC Public Safety has Remote ID identification system approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States.
Safety impact tests performed to demonstrate operational safety around people.
Free from hard front plastic parts and no front-facing motor.
Flight planning software integrates fail-safe protocols.
Live air traffic awareness with Ping USB accessory.
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.
Easy to use, easy to train. eBee TAC Public Safety can be operated by one person.
Easily transported in a rugged transport case suitable for many weather conditions.
Maintained without requiring external support.
Standalone and PPK deployment, 3 minutes. With RTK, 10 minutes.
Easy to use, with advanced features. All the functionality you need to collect and manage geospatial data to act with precision.
Plan, simulate and control advanced missions in any terrain, including mountainous areas.
Select the area you want to map, and the software generates the optimized flight plan. Automated flight and landing.
Easily hold the drone in position, adjust the flight path and/or the landing spot during flight.
Fly up to 4 drones at the same time, all controlled from 1 ground control station.
Fly in disconnected environments thanks to offline background maps and elevation data.
Horizontal, corridor, point of interest (POI), multiple or fully custom mission blocks.

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.
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.
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.
“It is the only collection platform organic to SFABs and has proven a critical enabler for tactical advise and assist efforts.”
SFAB, United States
“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.”
French Land Army
“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.”

Collect data for decision-making. Outputs include detailed 3D models, thermal maps, terrain and surface models, and high-resolution orthomosaics.
3D mapping. Patented photogrammetry sensor that changes orientation during flight. Its tilting technology provides excellent results in vertically-focused environments.
2D mapping. Optimize exposure time under numerous light conditions – including low-light – with this 24 megapixel drone photogrammetry camera for RGB outputs.
Thermal mapping. Dual RGB and FLIR thermal camera, suitable for night flights. The Duet T is a radiometric camera.
Capture sharp aerial images and translate them into detailed orthomosaic maps with this robust and efficient photogrammetry camera.
With its portrait camera position, Corridor sensor requires 30% fewer images to map the same linear route. This, in turn, means 30% shorter processing times.
