AscTec Falcon 8

Now with Trinity triple redundancy for ultimate stability

The AscTec Falcon 8 is a high-tech micro Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) with flexible camera and sensing options to suit your application.

The Falcon 8 from Ascending Technologies is designed for remote sensing applications as well as aerial photogrammetry and videography both on- and offshore.  Weighing just 2.3kg, the Falcon 8 is the most portable and easy-to-use solution available.  

Key features include:

  • Complete control – the Falcon 8 enables the user total control over RPA and camera at all times allowing you to respond to changing conditions while in-flight.
  • Auto Functions enable up to 360° spherical or cylindrical panos, Point-of-Interest (POI) imaging and Circle-of-Interest (COI) imaging.
  • Routes in 2D & 3D – waypoint navigation enables routes to be reproduced meaning great ground coverage and accurate information.
  • Robust & lightweight system that guarantees flight stability
  • Energy efficient – the Falcon 8 engines work with only 100 Watt per motor.

It is a proven and tested solution for high precision aerial mapping for applications including: 

  • Industrial inspection
  • Inaccessible areas
  • Site monitoring
  • Thermography
  • Post disaster work
  • Emergency 

Flight operation

Due to its small size, the Falcon 8 can be transported as is, fully assembled. Open the box, insert the battery and you are ready to fly! 

The AscTec High Performance GPS ensures stable positioning to make flying the Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) easy. In fact it is more like working with a tripod than flying a plane, as the patented v-shape structure keeps the rotary blades clear from the camera and protects the system. 

AscTec Navigator software

The AscTec Navigator is a fully integrated software solution, tagging aerial images and flight data for geo-referenced applications and geocoding. 

It provides comprehensive functionality, while still being intuitive and easy to use. 

Accurate workflow

Plan your mission before take off: define the survey zone, ground resolution and photo overlap, number of waypoints and positions.

Adapt and optimise the sequence route, set camera orientation, adjust single parameters and hit save! You can either export the flight plan then and there or export it later as required. 

New Trinity delivers performance, precision & safety

Trinity technology has to be seen to be believed, delivering unparalleled in-flight stability and precision flying in various weather conditions. 

  • Triple processing performance: three Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) ensure quick and reliable data processing
  • Triple precision: the three IMUs consistently verify and control the Falcon 8's position, altitude and orientation
  • Triple safety measures: all sensing data from the IMUs is synchronised to deliver powerful compensation for wind, pressure and other factors
