Freefly incorporates one of our GNSS receivers into its professional Alta 8 drone

Customer satisfaction is our number one aim. Whether they are fledgling startups or large-scale enterprises, our customers can benefit from our global support teams at any stage of their u-blox journey.

Freefly

Since its foundation in 2011, Freefly Systems has revolutionized the design and manufacture of professional camera movement systems and stabilizers, especially in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as a drones. A winner of several awards in the video‑making field, Freefly has been a loyal u‑blox customer from the start, incorporating our product NEO‑M8N into its professional Alta 8 drone, a ready‑to‑fly, multi‑rotor platform for aerial cinematographers.

Freefly particularly appreciates u‑blox’s ultra short lead times and continues to work with our company as a supplier of choice because of the reliability and robustness of our products and the short dependability. Freefly makes full use of the GNSS positioning capabilities of the u‑blox NEO‑M8N: the ALTA 8 is able to hold position even in difficult weather conditions. For industrial users, this gives the ability to execute complex flight paths while keeping pilot fatigue low.
