senseFly, a provider of fixed-wing mapping drones, announces the launch of eBee TAC, an advanced fixed-wing Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) optimized for covert tactical mapping operations in defense, security and governmental sectors.

The eBee TAC offers active field personnel access to accurate and reliable location data and maps, delivering the field intelligence and situational awareness needed to act with confidence and precision across rapidly-changing environments. More importantly, the eBee TAC is fully National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) compliant.

At just 1.6 kg (3.5 lbs), eBee TAC is a lightweight, ultra-portable and robust solution specially designed for tactical mapping and analysis in defense applications and its product platform is currently employed by U.S. forces. With up to 90 minutes of flight time and a single flight coverage of up to 500 ha at 122m (1,236 A at 400 ft.), it is ideal for long-range Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations, with the capability to integrate with situational awareness tools such as ATAK.

Adding to powerful flight and integration capabilities, eBee TAC includes enhanced security features to protect field operations. The included eMotion flight and mission planning software enables operations in disconnected environments and employs Advanced Encryption Standard 256 (AES-256) to prevent communications hacking between the UAS and its control station. Silent radio mission mode can be activated to minimize UAS detection during flights, while a No Log Mode suppresses flight recordings.
