3 types of image data in 1 flight

With the albris you can collect and geotag video, still and thermal imagery at the same time enabling you to optimize value generation.

Cutting-edge user friendly

The albris is the most advanced multirotor on the market making it very user friendly to operate due to its advanced sensors. The albris is automatically detecting obstacles and surfaces making it possible to come close up to the target in order to achieve sub-millimeter image resolutions.

Flight mode flexibility

The albris offers autonomous, GPS-guiden or live-streamning interactive flight, or start in autonomous mode and “go live” on demand. The interaction with the drone is highly innovative making the operation easy and effective for even inexperienced operators.

Sensor rich

albris is a sensor-rich system with the widest payload breadth of any civilian drone. Its stabilized TripleView sensor head allows you to examine high-definition video and thermal video imagery, live during your flight, and capture high-resolution still images on demand. All saved and accessible post-flight, and all without landing to change payloads.

Safe operation

albris is designed from the ground up to permit the safe inspection of buildings and other structures. The drone’s five sensor modules, positioned around the aircraft, each feature a navcam and an ultrasonic sensor.

Optimizing your existing business

The albris is ideal of new types of data collecting which generate value for you. With the albris you are able to collect high-solution ortophotos, create 3D models of a area, building and structure. albris is ideal of many types of inspection tasks such as construction inspection, power line inspection and other types of tasks which was hard or impossible before.
