Falcon 8

Falcon 8 GeoEXPERT

Powered by Ascending Technologies, the Falcon 8 is a rotary-wing UAS designed for inspection and monitoring or survey and mapping applications.

Features & Benefits:

  • Configurable for inspection or surveying
  • Use multiple sensors at the same time
  • Resistant to magnetic interference
  • Operational in windy areas
  • Low noise, emission free operation
  • Triple redundancy with Topcon Trinity safety systems

Purpose-Built Payload Options

There are two Falcon 8 models to choose from depending on your application:

  • GeoEXPERT – Payload includes a high-resolution RGB camera (Sony Alpha 7R) for small survey, modelling and mapping projects.
  • InspectionPRO – Payload consists of an RGB camera and IR sensor (Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 + FLIR TAU 640) for inspection and monitoring applications.

A Sony Camcorder HDR-PJ810 can optionally be added to either the GeoEXPERT or InspectionPRO for live videography.

Ease of Use

The most frequently used features are implemented in the Mobile Ground Station firmware-enabling operation without the need for a PC in the field. Automatic compensations are made for heavy wind gusts or other events, which minimizes the need for pilot corrections.

Designed for Stability

Take off from any location and be able to work even in heavy winds – the Falcon 8 is resistant to magnetic interferences and temperature variations.

Built-in Failsafes

With many levels of built-in redundancies – three autopilots, redundant electronics, a redundant propulsion system, and redundant radio links – the Falcon 8 ensures top performance, precision and safety.

Top Quality Data

Using best-in-class sensors and a camera mount compensating for abrupt maneuvers, the Falcon 8 delivers incredibly detailed survey and inspection data – revealing the finest cracks and heat leaks.

Easy Payload Swap

When applications change and an alternate payload is needed, simply remove the current and insert the other.
