Who we are

Drone Tech is a simplified joint stock company created in 2013. Our activities are authorised by the General Direction of Civil Aviation and our company is a member of the French Professional Federation of Civil Drone.

Its founders where originally seeking for an arial inspection method dedicated to photovoltaic installations and using infrared thermography.
Since then, Reunion island has constituted the ideal laboratory for the improvement of inspection methods under extreme insolation.

Thanks to quality of the equipments needed and due to the reactivity of his/her associates, Drone Tech was rapidly able to develop other professional applications such as photogrammetry, multispectral teledetection and of course a large panel of applications of photos-videos.

Drone Tech provides

We pay close attention to the quality during the conception of our multicopters. Electronics is entirely tropicalized to resist heat and moisture. In agreement with the 2012/04/11 executive decision , Drone Tech has deposited its Handbook of Particular Activities to the DGAC and is fully approved for scenario S1, S2 and S3.

Drone Tech co-workers competences are complementary and allow us to provide the best services: private and RPAS pilots, engineer in thermography and topography, high-level technician in electricity and electronics, specialist in GIS, sound and assembly video engineer…

Electric brushless motors of 350W each. No pollution. The carbon propellers generate little noise and become hardly perceptible once at elevation of 20 meters.

In France thanks to its prefectural approval for S3, Drone Tech can intervene downtown and/or on roofs. People overflight implies their written agreement and night flight is prohibited.
Operating under French regulation.

Redundancy and electronic reliability, automatic landing in case of a connection breakdown, weather conditions, formation of remotely-pilots, safety supervision, specific insurance, human factors… Drone Tech safety requirements are draconian.
