Non-profit organization We Robotics has achieved a world first by delivering anti-venom to a small village in the Peruvian Amazon. The area is densely forested and most transportation is on the water. As a result, transporting medical supplies from the nearest city can take up to 6 hours for a 35km trip. We Robotics has modified an E384, developed procedures and successfully navigated regulations in order to make the same delivery in just 35 minutes. For a region that reports 45 snakebites per year, their accomplishment may mean the difference between life and death.

Akron, Ohio – Event 38, a leading business drone solution provider, opened pre-orders for the E384-LR Long Range Mapping Drone. The E384-LR is a special configuration of the popular mapping drone, the E384. Incorporating a light-weight and high resolution Sony QX-1 camera with state of the art battery technology, the E384-LR can achieve a useful flight time of 110 minutes, covering as much as 2,100 acres (850Ha, 3.3sq mi) at a resolution of 5cm/pixel in a single flight. The E384-LR is expected to begin shipping on December 5th.
Jeff Taylor, CEO of Event 38, says, “Our customers depend on the E384 to produce aerial imagery of large areas from farms in Iowa to the most remote and inhospitable corners of 6 continents. By flying even longer, the E384-LR lets our customers spend less time swapping batteries and more time collecting data.”
Starting at just $4,298 for a complete drone mapping system including sensors and flight software, the E384-LR is also a very economical platform to acquire and maintain.

The Drone Data Management System™ officially starts accepting ground control points as of today. Ground control points are used in situations where high accuracy, on the order of centimeters, is required for a map. They allow drone maps to be used for critical work in surveying, construction, agriculture and other industries.
Ground control points are billed on a per-use basis and are available only to users in the DDMS™ Advanced tier, please contact us for more information.
Two new tools are now available to all Drone Data Management System™ users. As part of the Map Viewer data analysis suite, users will now see a legend appear next to maps where an underlying data layer is present. NDVI, DVI and DEM layers show their scale of values and corresponding colors for easy interpretation of each layer. In addition, for the NDVI and DVI layers, clicking on the map at any location will also reveal a popup with GPS coordinates and exact data values.
These features are automatically available to all users processing NDVI, DVI or DEM data.
Parrot Sequoia multispectral cameras are now available and shipping regularly as standard options on the E384 and E386. Contact us for more information or select the Parrot Sequoia option when checking out with either vehicle online.
The Event 38 E384 and E386 now support the Sony QX-1 camera. With a 20MP APS-C sensor and compact body, the QX-1 is able to collect data in landscape orientation further increasing the mapping efficiency of the Event 38 fixed wing platforms.
