Intended use

The Songbird family developed by Germandrones has been specifically designed and produced for specialized purposes. The UAS Songbird combines the efficiency, speed and durability of traditional aircraft with the vertical take-off and landing capabilities of modern multirotor drones. This combination not only expands the scope of existing UAS use, but also offers a whole new range of applications such as surveying and mapping, search and rescue, security and surveillance, and precision agriculture.

For each of these uses, appropriate sensors and data processing technologies are applied to solve real-world problems. Germandrones' VTOL drones are built to German engineering standards.

Frequently asked questions about commercial drone leasing:

Leasing for drones is possible for 24 or 36 months. The lease term is extended by another 12 months if not cancelled in time (6 months) by the end date.

Drone leasing is intended exclusively for commercial customers. Ideally, the lessee should have been active in the market for at least 24 months. Sufficient creditworthiness is a prerequisite.

Droniq GmbH supports you in the right selection of the drone, prepares the offer and acts as an intermediary in the leasing. The leasing contract itself is concluded with DLL Group (lessor), our leasing partner. The delivery of the drone takes place via Droniq.

Early contract termination is possible at any time upon repurchase at the current residual value of the drone. An extension is also possible after the end of the term. Lease contracts that are not terminated in due time at the end date (6 months) are automatically extended by another 12 months.

At the end of the leasing period, the lessee has the option to purchase the drone for its residual value. Furthermore, there is the possibility to redeem the drone during the leasing period.

There is an electronics insurance that can be optionally selected when the leasing object is contracted, so that in the event of damage, a simple settlement is possible at any time. The insurance partner for the electronics insurance is HDI Versicherung AG.

The use of the leased drone is generally only permitted in Germany. Deviating locations (in other EU countries) must be requested and approved by the lessor. Permanent use outside the EU is not possible.

Only new equipment is delivered to lessees.

Security and monitoring

The equipped Songbird drone with stabilized video gimbal and a remotely transmitted, high-definition live stream allows you to observe vulnerable areas from a safe distance and over long periods of time. Whether it's an accident zone or flying the drone over an area that can't be entered, the live video in the optical and/or thermal spectrum gives you the ability to make informed decisions. The long flight time allows large factory sites, airports, railroads, pipelines or power lines to be continuously monitored for up to 2 hours at a time.

Surveying and mapping

The Songbird is equipped with high-precision cameras and GPS, making it the leading solution for surveying, mapping and documentation tasks. The resulting 3D models and images meet industrial requirements, for example for
production monitoring and inventory management in surface and road construction, detection of tectonic movements or monitoring of weirs and dikes.
The Songbird can be brought into the field by a single remote pilot. The VTOL drone is transported in a rugged aluminum box and is ready to assemble in less than 10 minutes. With a single flight, you can inspect areas of up to 25 km², quickly and accurately gathering information over very large areas.

Search and rescue services

The Songbird is equipped with a real-time mapping kit that makes it a unique new tool for first responders and state agencies to use during natural disasters. Less than five minutes after returning from a mission, an accurate, geo-referenced image of the disaster zone is presented, allowing you to plan ahead and work more efficiently. This can save lives and prevent rescue workers from getting into dangerous or stressful situations. The mapping kit can be exchanged for a stabilized video gimbal, with a remotely controlled high-resolution live stream with additional thermal sensors to assist personnel in the control center. Thus, the Songbird can support reconnaissance teams in difficult conditions.

Precision Agriculture

The Songbird with optical and multispectral cameras helps you
improve crop yield in many ways.
Determining plant health, pest infestation or
total biomass is useful to improve the use of pesticides
. Another application is the optimization of
irrigation systems, which is particularly relevant in areas with frequent
droughts. Advanced crop analysis software
can be used to gain the best possible insight into the
condition of your crops and predict growth throughout the season
.

Product Features

  • Highflyer

    Vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) characteristics eliminate the need for a runway while retaining all the advantages of a fixed-wing aircraft.

  • Long flight times

    Advanced aerodynamic design and uncompromising lightweight construction result in flight times of up to two hours: almost double that of comparable systems.

  • Enormous range

    Depending on the payload, the range of the Songbird family is up to 90 km (distance) / 25 km² (area) with a wingspan of 3.10 m.

  • Most modern autopilot

    Thanks to autopilot with automatic take-off and landing function, the Songbird can be flown by a single remote pilot. The drone pilot does not need to have any flying experience, only the certification required in the respective country.

  • Simple & fast assembly

    The Songbird is quickly and easily mounted without tools and can be transported again in a light metal case in the car. 

  • Large payload

    The Songbird has a payload of up to 4.4 kg and allows operation with gro0en battery packs, dual cameras or highly specialized sensors such as LiDAR or real-time mapping solutions simultaneously.

  • Wind and weather resistant

    The Songbird was designed by engineers with
    years of real-world experience and knowledge of what your equipment must endure in real-world conditions. The VTOL drone benefits from testing in extreme weather conditions: from the African desert to the tropical jungle. The Songbird can operate in wind speeds of up to 19 m/s as well as extreme heat or cold and light rain.

  • Simple briefing

    A short briefing is required to operate the Songbird so that the drone can be operated safely, reliably and efficiently.

    In addition, we advise which sensors and technical solutions are best suited for your specific applications.

DRONIQlive: How drones help to rescue fawns

Rescuing fawns with the help of drones is a hot topic. Every spring, farmers start mowing their fields and unfortunately fawns are often caught by the mowing machines without being detected.

Drones can be a great help in saving the animals! Equipped with thermal imaging cameras, drone pilots can spot the animals from the air before it is too late. This allows farmers, hunters or other helpers to rescue the fawns in good time.

In our next edition of DRONIQlive on Thu, 23.05.2024 at 7 pm, we will take a closer look at this topic. We look forward to your participation!
