High accuracy tactical mapping solution

eBee TAC operates in disconnected environments to provide a higher-accuracy mobile solution to map and share imagery data on rapidly-shifting environments in order to analyze and act with precision. This is a Swiss made portable solution that can be transported and maintained without requiring external support.


Validated cyber-secure

  • Radio data link with AES-256 encryption
  • Drone log file suppression
  • Encrypted SD card
  • Silent radio mission
  • Low visible signature at 300 m / 984 ft AGL
  • Acoustically undetectable at 300 m / 984 ft AGL
  • Integrable with Google Earth Enterprise (GEEP)
  • Designed and assembled in Switzerland


90 minutes flight time

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.


Takeoff weight 1.6 kg / 3.5 lbs

Thanks to its light weight, eBee TAC fixed-wing has the best ratio energy/MTOW compared to heavier VTOL drones, offering better energy efficiency.


3D and thermal mapping

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.


1.5 cm / 0.6 in accuracy

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).


MGRS coordinates

eMotion drone management software for eBee TAC includes the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS), the geocoordinate standard used by NATO.


Fully operational and approved solution

Blue UAS registered by U.S. DoD

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.

Operated by one person
Easy to use, easy to train. eBee TAC can be operated by one person.

IP67 military transport case
Easily transported in a hard transport case with STANAG certification.

Easy maintenance
Maintained without requiring external support.

3 minutes deployment
Standalone and PPK deployment, 3 minutes. With RTK, 10 minutes.


Flight management software

Easy to use, with advanced features. All the functionality you need to collect and manage geospatial data to act with precision.

3D flight planning
Plan, simulate and control advanced missions in any terrain, including mountainous areas. Automated flight and landing.

Full covert mission
Covert option allows you to perform silent radio missions with undetectable radio.

Live flight plan change
Easily hold the drone in position, adjust the flight path and/or the landing spot during flight.

Multi-drone operations
Fly up to 4 drones at the same time, all controlled from 1 ground control station.

Offline planning
Fly in disconnected environments thanks to offline background maps and elevation data.

Optimized modes
Horizontal, corridor, point of interest (POI), multiple or fully custom mission blocks.


Proven reliability

eBee TAC is purpose-built for the tactical mapping demands of defense applications to improve mission effectiveness in a variety of terrains.

The hardware, software, cybersecurity and reliability of the product have been assessed by the U.S. Defense Innovation Unit (DIU).

12 years Industry experience
173,600 + Cumulated flights
90,490 + Flight hours
1/1,750 hours Fly away probability


Safety tests

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.


Rugged and durable solution

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.


NDAA compliant

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.


Tactical mapping partnership

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.


Post-processing compatibility

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.
