Our core points

Where we make a difference

Ease of use

Our system is designed to be completely autonomous. We have optimised the workflow so no piloting skills are required. A few taps on our custom-built tablet app is all that is needed to launch a mission, send the drone flying and receive the results.


We incorporated three different types of advanced cameras into our custom drone. A pre-installed visual, thermal and multispectral camera forego the need for costly hardware upgrades and cover a wide range of use cases.


We place particular importance in the reliability of our system. Based in the heart of rural Australia we know how extreme the weather conditions can become. This is why our drone is designed to endure even the harshest conditions of rain, dust and heat.
