Boreal lab

Expertise in scientific missions carried out by UAVs

A UAV adapted for scientific measurements:

The BOREAL LAB meets the requirements of research laboratories seeking to test and validate their innovative equipment, including prototypes. Our UAV enables the integration of one or more sensors, also known as payloads, within a 30-litre space. The system can be customized, and additional equipment such as attachment points and aerials can be integrated. The design of our aircraft enables very stable flights in challenging environments, including turbulence, precipitation, and strong winds.

  • Field of view 60° x 48°.
  • 640 x 512 pixels, IFOV 1.63 mrad

A solution for testing heavy payloads

The BOREAL LAB UAV’s stability and performance make it stand out from other solutions in its category for testing heavy payloads.

Additionally, a 60W generator is integrated into the system to provide continuous power to the scientific equipment throughout the flight.

Our BOREAL LAB systems are highly sought after by organizations such as Météo France, the Laboratoire d’aérologie (French Aerology Laboratory), the CNES (French National Centre for Space Studies), and the ONERA (French National Office for Aerospace Studies and Research), and are regularly operated both in France and abroad. BOREAL is an experienced company with numerous missions worldwide, including Barbados, Bulgaria, Greece, Finland, Reunion Island, Guyana, and Switzerland, and is a major reference in the field of scientific and meteorological measurements collected by UAVs.
