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 can cover large and inaccessible areas.
Thanks to its light weight, eBee TAC fixed-wing has the best ratio energy/MTOW compared to heavier VTOL drones, offering better energy efficiency.
eBee TAC swappable cameras allow you to collect data that can be used via the encrypted SD card for analysis and decision-making.
Camera options include RGB, 3D (patented) and thermal payloads for night flights.
With the RTK / PPK optional software, the tactical mapping drone achieves an absolute accuracy down to 1.5 cm / 0.6 in, without ground control points (GCPs).
eMotion drone management software for eBee TAC includes the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS), the geocoordinate standard used by NATO.
eBee TAC is the first fixed-wing approved drone to be added to the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) Blue UAS Cleared List for procurement by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and government agencies.
Systems added to this list do not require a Department of Defense exception to operate, as they have undergone an evaluation of the drone systems’ capabilities, NDAA compliance, operational safety and cyber security.
Easy to use, easy to train. eBee TAC can be operated by one person.
Easily transported in a hard transport case with STANAG certification.
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. Automated flight and landing.
Covert option allows you to perform silent radio missions with undetectable radio.
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.

eBee TAC drone meets the highest possible quality and ground risk safety standards and has demonstrated operational safety around people.
eBee drones have been granted Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations permission in Brazil.
Approved to run Operations Over People (OOP) in Canada and in the United States.
eBee drones are the first to receive M2 Mitigation Design Verification for SORA process from the European Aviation Agency (EASA), essential for advanced operations.
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.
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 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.
ARTEMIS solution created in collaboration with Hexagon US Federal and Tough Stump Technologies.
This Aerial Reconnaissance Tactical Mapping and Imagery System kit available for the U.S. includes the eBee TAC drone, Google Earth Enterprise Platform (GEEP) and can be integrated with situational awareness tools such as ATAK.
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 in Afghanistan.”
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. 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.”
