Description of the organization
SenseFly is the leading manufacturer of professional fixed-wing drones. The primary application of the eBee drones is mapping, with applications in GIS, surveying, land management, horizontal construction, mining and quarry, environmental mapping and post disaster mapping as well as agriculture. In addition to the eBee fixed-wing drone, senseFly has developed a quadcopter, the albris, specialized for inspection and mapping of bridges, cell towers and other industrial installations.
SenseFly has a very strong expertise in development, industrialization, manufacturing and marketing of professional drones for mapping and inspection. These drones (e.g. eBee X below) will be used to integrate the novel morphing and perching technologies developed in this project.
