senseFly has introduced the Solar 360 thermal drone solution in a move to target efficient solar farm inspections.
Unveiled at this year’s AUVSI Xponential, the solution has been designed to enable the automated and efficient inspection of solar farms.
It has been created in collaboration with software company Raptor Maps.
Gilles Labossière, CEO of senseFly, commented: “At senseFly we are continually looking across the industry to identify new commercial partners with whom we can bring to market what our customers need, which is vertically-focused end-to-end solutions.”
He added: “With Raptor Maps, we are collaborating with a true solar industry pioneer. Their software takes the guesswork out of solar farm inspection and, crucially, speeds up this process from days down to hours. This efficiency, combined with the eBee X’s large coverage and reliability, ensures that farm owners and operators, or the drone service providers they employ, can inspect utility-scale solar farms more quickly, easily, and accurately than ever before.”
The new solution is supplied with the customer’s choice of Data Pack which are available in 50 MW, 100 MW and 200 MW variants, depending on the output capacity a customer expects to assess over the course of a year.
