A DRONE DESIGNED FOR FIRST RESPONDERS AND ENTERPRISE PROFESSIONALS

ANAFI USA is a powerful drone built to meet the demands of first responders, firefighters, search-and-rescue teams, security agencies, surveying and inspection professionals.Featuring an industry-first 32x zoom, 4K HDR video and thermal imaging capabilities, ANAFI USA is an ultraportable, secure and durable aerial camera platform.

Manufactured in the U.S.

ANAFI USA offers the same high-end security, durability and imaging capabilities as Parrot’s Short-Range Reconnaissance (SRR) drone designed for the U.S. Army. ANAFI USA’s data encryption and privacy features are compliant with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), delivering best-in-class privacy and security for sensitive missions.

Anafi USA

ANAFI USA is the latest evolution of Parrot’s extensive experience in developing and bringing to market innovative drone solutions for commercial markets. A trusted name in drones, Parrot’s decade-long experience serving the needs of industries through its hardware and software ecosystems cannot be matched. Additionally, it’s growing list of innovative and experienced industry partners continue to strengthen and bolster the platform’s offerings.

32x zoom

When firefighters arrive on the scene of a fire, the most important need is to view hot spots while also being able to assess the entire visual scene. ANAFI USA’s gimbal and advanced optics were designed with this challenge in mind. The 32x zoom is designed around two 21-megapixel cameras, allowing operators to see details clearly from up to 5 km (3.1 mi) away. ANAFI USA can see details as small as 1 cm with precision from a distance of 50 meters.

The zoom image is coupled (blended) with images from ANAFI USA’s FLIR Boson camera. This enables operators to detect hot spots with the thermal camera, while the visual camera allows them to view people and other important details from up to 2 km (1.2 mi) away.

 

In the example image below, the drone is flying over solar panels at an altitude of 40 m (44 yds). With ANAFI USA’s powerful zoom, the pilot can detect centimetric hot spots on the solar panels.

Ensuring excellent image stabilization on 32x zoom images with a light drone (499 g/1 lbs) is a particularly delicate technological achievement. Parrot accomplished this feat by coupling the stabilization of the gimbal with full 3-axis digital stabilization via image processing.  

Easy to operate

For first responders and the most demanding professional users, rapid drone deployment is a necessity during missions. ANAFI USA is operational in less than 55 seconds: it takes less than 55 seconds to unfold the drone, turn it on, establish the secure radio link and take off.

 

ANAFI USA works indoors without GPS, allowing operators to take off inside a house, pilot the drone through a window to fly outside, and then come back.

 

ANAFI USA can also launch from the palm of the hand like a paper plane, further expanding its ease of use.

 

With no built-in limitations for no-fly zones, ANAFI USA gives first responders the freedom to fly responsibly at a moment’s notice and wherever their missions may take them.

 

ANAFI USA is the quietest drone in its class, with a sound level of just 79 dB when it is 50cm off the ground. When discretion is a mission critical priority, ANAFI USA offers the ability to fly quietly and see incredible details from far distances with its 32x zoom.

 

It uses a standard USB-C type charger for hassle-free convenience.

 

Weighing in at just 499 g (1 lbs), the compact ANAFI USA folds easily for maximum portability. Despite its compact design, ANAFI USA boasts a 32-minute flight time — also best in class for a drone of its size. Furthermore, ANAFI USA comes standard with 3 battery packs, offering a total of 1.5 hours of flight time for a drone lighter than 1 kg.

Trusted and secure

ANAFI USA puts security first for professional users.

 

ANAFI USA’s Secure Digital (SD) card encryption feature ensures a complete protection of photos and videos if the drone or the SD card is lost. A robust AES-XTS algorithm is used with a 512-bit key length.

 

ANAFI USA also includes a secure WPA2 Wi-Fi connection to authenticate and encrypt the link between the remote controller and ANAFI USA.

 

Signed firmware prevents any malicious modification of the drone software.

 

Parrot uses trusted standards and open protocols (such as Wi-Fi, WPA2, RTP/RTSP, H.264, and GUTMA) to ensure the utmost interoperability and security for all recorded data.

 

Users can choose to share data by opting in via the FreeFlight 6 app. No data is shared by default without the consent of the user. After opting-in to the feature, flight data and logs are stored on secure servers in Europe in addition to local copies of the data on the drone. The drone’s features are fully compliant with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Ruggedized

ANAFI USA has passed the IP53 qualification, making it suitable to fly in rainy conditions. It’s built for missions in the toughest flight conditions, offering weatherproofing with water and dust resistance.

 

ANAFI USA’s stabilized imaging ensures high-quality footage even at 15 m/s wind conditions.

New flight features

ANAFI USA’s advanced flight features are designed to meet the unique needs of enterprise drone users. Powered by Parrot’s acclaimed FreeFlight 6 piloting software, pilots have multiple easy-to-use flight options. ANAFI USA’s flight routes can be set by coordinates in assisted framing or executed autonomously.

 

The ability to create a flight plan with pre-set automatic flights and target-tracking make it easy for the entire team to carry out missions.

 

Featuring an editable “Return to Home” (RTH) feature, the drone allows users to program a specified “home” location for easy mission wrap-up. This RTH feature automatically occurs when the drone disconnects or is running low on battery to help protect your organization’s investment.

 

ANAFI USA captures the precise GPS coordinates of the drone and the point of interest, offering detailed location information to help operation leaders on the ground quickly locate targets such as missing persons or hazardous materials.
