AIR6 | AIRBORNE is a leading manufacturer of professional drones with offices in the UK and in Austria (development & manufacturing). Our high performance systems are sold worldwide and used for manual and automated flights mounted with sensors for:

  • Agriculture and forestry;
  • Measuring, mapping, surveying and mining;
  • Inspection and documentation of buildings, construction sites, critical infrastructure and power assets;
  • Surveillance and search & rescue (SAR);
  • Photography, film and movies;
  • Industrial applications & automation; and
  • Research.

We manufacture probably the greenest means of payload transportation in the world. Our drones are equipped with the newest generation of efficient batteries, similar to electric cars, with enhanced duration and extended charging cycles (up to 1,000x). We supply companies that strive to run their operations responsibly – sustainable & energy efficient, workflow-optimized, future oriented. Our customers fly drones not to congest the airspace but to conduct meaningful work with meaningful sensors.
What impact does your business make? Drones are only a small part of it but a great start.

Enhance your ground-based workflows and procedures through aerial information for inspection, analysis and documentation. Collect meaningful data with professional sensors. In order to fully exploit the potential of aerial imagery for site overview, zone mapping, 3D photogrammetry or inspection of critical assets mount the highest quality camera you can afford. Increasing the resolution of an image decreases its ground sampling distance (GSD) and thereby increases the accuracy of the map or the 3D model. We recommend ordering a 24.3-megapixel camera or higher for drone mapping and surveys. Thermal inspection of critical assets is only meaningful with highest quality cameras.

Based on long-term experience in manufacturing professional drones we have optimized manufacturing processes to arrive where we stand today. Our AIR8 drone is the ultimate technology bundle and the “power” in the airspace reserved for UAV traffic: Laser scanning / LiDAR images are made accessible – environmentally & cost efficient – and can be performed for small and large projects. Multiple sensors can be mounted and deployed at one and the same flight.

Our customers win tenders and mandates because they can convince through our state-of-the-art UAV equipment, in particular through:

  • Redundancy (enhanced fail-safety from two electronic circuits; essential for Operating Safety Case)
  • Performance (payload, flight time, power reserve, stability)
  • Open Platform (ability to mount any sensor or payload)
  • Customizations (systems tailored to your specifications)

Manufactured in Austria, our systems are compliant with the highest technical & safety standards and legal requirements.

Payload capacity means efficiency and flexibility. With multiple sensors mounted at the same time you can reduce your repeat flights and can capture essential information at all time. We recommend purchasing a drone able to carry 1.5 kg or higher for agriculture, inspection, mapping & surveys as well as search & rescue. For LiDAR applications or multiple sensor requirements during your missions we recommend a drone with at least 7 kg payload capacity and 40 minutes flight time. This gives you enough power and safety reserves.
