Company Spotlight: senseFly
senseFly believes in using technology to make work both safer and more efficient.
The company’s field-proven, end-to-end drone solutions simplify the collection and analysis of geospatial data, allowing surveying and GIS professionals, and their clients, to make better decisions, faster.
Founded in 2009 by Swiss robotics researchers, senseFly has quickly grown to become the industry leader in mapping drones. Its solutions have flown over 415,000 flights to date globally, mapping a region of more than 52,500,000 acres in the process.
Thousands of geospatial professionals today employ the company’s eBee range of large-coverage, fixed-wing drones across a myriad of surveying applications, from cadastral work and urban planning projects to quarry and mine surveys, as-built surveys, land management studies and more. Their senseFly equipment is all backed by the very highest level of professional support, typically provided by senseFly’s expert network of local service partners.
Professionals choose senseFly for several reasons. The company’s products are simple-to-use, hand-launched, with automated flight, image capture, landing and no piloting skills required. senseFly systems are safe; they have the lowest takeoff weights in their category for minimized kinetic energy and shock-absorbent construction. Plus, senseFly offers a camera payload to suit every project, from high-resolution RGB sensors to thermal and multispectral sensors.
Above all, senseFly solutions are designed from the ground up to meet industry needs. They are supplied with the company’s acclaimed professional-grade eMotion ground station software, are seamlessly compatible with industry-leading Pix4D photogrammetry software, and the new eBee Plus includes flexible, on-demand RTK/PPK functionality for true survey-grade accuracy without the need for ground control points.
