Hexadrone unveils Tundra 2, the next generation of modular drone

After the encouraging success of its Tundra modular drone, French SME Hexadrone has unveiled the next generation – Tundra 2. It is being marketed as an even more modular and high-performance drone, entirely designed and manufactured in France. The company has already recorded nearly 100 compatible payload options. To support its launch, Hexadrone has invested €2 million in an industrial tool that adheres to the excellence of industry standards. Anticipating a full order book, the new production unit is poised to produce up to 1,000 drones per year.

Hexadrone’s evolution from craftsmanship to industrialisation

Recently stamped with the UAF – Used by the French Armies – label awarded by the French Ministry of the Armed Forces, Hexadrone moved into new industrial buildings a few months ago to meet its growth objectives. While this new site based in Saint Ferréol d’Auroure (43), continues to host Hexadrone’s historical activities, it is mainly designed to enable the company to transition from a craft production of 50 units annually to industrial production capacity for its unique carrier drone, the Tundra.

The modularity and made-in-France manufacture of Tundra 2

2023 marks the official launch of the Tundra 2, the modular tool carrier drone. With a strong focus on “Made in France”, Hexadrone has chosen to collaborate with French partners for the manufacture of the different structural parts of its drone. The Tundra 2 has been designed with replaceable arms, allowing for easy configuration based on mission requirements. The device has numerous interfaces distributed across all sides of the body allowing for total customisation with PLUG & PLAY modules. These upgrades all aim towards one goal: simplifying the user experience. The company claims the applications are limitless: security/defence, environment, construction, industry, audiovisual, agriculture, university research, etc. The modularity and adaptability are the real strengths of this carrier drone.
