For photogrammetric-quality mapping, upgradeable RTK/PPK functionality and flight time of almost an hour, the UAV is designed for professionals working in fields such as surveying, construction and GIS who require efficient data collection with survey-grade accuracy.

The eBee Plus offers

  • built-in RTK/PPK functionality, activated immediately or later on demand, for survey-grade accuracy that the operator controls;
  • the new senseFly S.O.D.A. RGB camera developed specifically for drone photogrammetry work, featuring a 1-inch sensor and global shutter,  capable of capturing images with a spatial resolution of 2.9 centimeters.
  • eMotion 3 flight and data management software, featuring a full 3D flight environment, mission block flight planning, cloud connectivity and free updates.

High Precision on Demand (HPoD) describes the drone’s built-in upgrade path to real-time and post-processing correction (RTK/PPK) functionality. Once activated by the user, this paid enhancement boosts the system’s achievable horizontal/vertical absolute accuracy to 3 centimeters/5 centimeters without the need for ground control points—dramatically reducing expensive, time-consuming field work.
