Parrot Anafi USA

Page updated by Nick S. on January 19, 2021
quote Released in June 2020, this advanced drone packs some seriously powerful sensors (2 x visual and 1 x thermal) into a compact 500 gram total weight airframe making it easy to transport and super fast to deploy (get flying in under 1 min). Perfect for industrial inspection teams going from site to site, and police/fire/military teams who need advanced aerial vision without delay. Data security wise, it is assembled in the USA and has the same high-end data security as Parrot’s Short-Range Reconnaissance (SRR) version that was designed for the U.S. Army.

The 3 x integrated cameras are: 1 x thermal (FLIR Boson 320 x 256) and 2 x visual cameras (Sony 21MP stills and 4K HDR video). The 2 x visual cameras work in unison to get all the way out to 32x zoom and still hold a stabilised image. When in 1080P mode video, it is optical zoom for the first 10x, and then hybrid optical/digital for the remaining 22x. This 1 min video shows it zooming in on a mobile phone tower, powerline and solar array (thermal). You can see details clearly from up to 5 km - impressive. This video shows the thermal sensor zooming in on a person at 45m and 100m away, followed by an example of inspecting solar panels with thermal/visual blending (overlaying) - very useful feature. This 4 min unboxing video shows exactly what comes in the box - the drone itself, a hard case, controller, tablet holder, 3 x batteries, an extra set of propellers and a multi charger. This image shows the items. quote

5 good reasons to order with DFH
Up until now, getting 3 different sensors on one drone would normally mean you have to buy a large heavy airframe, get a license to fly it (over 2kg means a licence is needed), and also buy the individual cameras/sensors separately to attach to it. This is relatively expensive and inconvenient to carry around and deploy, when compared to the Anafi USA.

With 32 mins flight time, and 3 batteries in the box means 1.5 hrs+ of flying per session. And an IP53 rating means you can keep flying in light-medium rain. It can also handle 50 kph wind (note that windy conditions reduce battery life for all drones as the drone is working harder to stabilise).

The Anafi USA is made by the Parrot Group which also owns Pix4D (highly regarded image processing software) so it will be designed to work well with Pix4D software such as React and Cloud. See other applicable apps here including Flir Tools. The Parrot Group also owns Sensefly (largest fixed wing drone company in the world) and Micasense which makes multispectral sensors for drones (for assessing vegetation / crop health).

Basic level tech specs are available on page 4 of this 4-page PDF .

Full and detailed white paper tech specs are available here.

For asset inspection work, take a look at some case studies here regarding the inspection of a powerline, cell tower and solar array.

For the RFS and other fire brigades, when you arrive on the scene of a fire, it is understood that 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.

It also 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. It uses a standard and convenient USB-C type charger. And with no built-in limitations for CASA 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. The ANAFI USA is also the quietest drone in its class, with a sound level of just 79 dB when it is 50cm off the ground.

Regarding data security, 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’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).

For approved customers (government, military etc) a security enhanced ‘SE’ version of the Anafi USA is available. Please email us for more information on this version.

This 2-min video shows the inclusion of the Anafi USA in the GSA schedule for the U.S. Army and government operations. 

Read about how the Anafi USA is relevant to search and rescue, defence and law enforcement.

Update Sep 2020: FreeFlight now comes standard with DroneLogBook integrated. It is compatible with the Anafi (Regular, Work, Thermal, FPV and USA). No more using spreadsheets for logging your flights, pilots, maintenance procedures etc. Dronelogbook imports your flights automatically – you can view the GPS trace and replay flights in 3D. You can also generate custom checklists and get notified when your next maintenance task is due and also check controlled airspace status. The great thing is the integration is “native” in FreeFlight, meaning it is simple,powerful and seamless. A very useful addition from Parrot and DroneLogBook.
