Swiss drone manufacturer senseFly has launched the eXom, its new quadcopter unmanned aerial system (UAS) for mapping and inspection. The eXom is available to pre-order immediately and ships this summer.
The company says the lightweight quadcopter, with a take-off weight of 1.7 kg (3.7 lb.), contains a rich array of integrated sensors. The product provides professionals, such as civil engineers and land surveyors, with the situational awareness, imaging flexibility and durability they need to complete tasks safely, accurately and efficiently, adds senseFly.
‘We believe the eXom's level of application-focused technology is unique in the civilian drone market,’ says Antoine Beyeler, chief technology officer and co-founder of senseFly. ‘This platform tightly integrates several one-of-a-kind features, such as TripleView imaging, advanced situational awareness and full flight mode flexibility, to provide inspection and mapping professionals with the functionality they desire from a rotary system.’
According to senseFly, eXom's autopilot-controlled TripleView camera head enables the user to view and record three different types of imagery during a single flight without needing to land to change cameras: HD video, ultra-high-resolution stills, and thermal stills/video.
