Cerana X8 combines significant lifting capacity and weather resistance to provide a rugged, reliable multirotor aircraft ready for missions ranging from lightweight parcel delivery to asset
inspections utilising specialised sensors. In its folded transport configuration, Cerana X8-28 is the most compact UAV in its class, enabling new possibilities for front-line operations.

Operate in BVLOS-ready mode and control Cerana X8 from a remote Drone Operations Centre over the built-in 4G/5G communications links. Choose between our Singapore-hosted public cloud infrastructure, or an on-site installation within a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Both employ AES-256 encryption with burned-in keys at the time of manufacture for all control, telemetry, and media transmissions.

Safely navigate low-altitude airspace in crowded cities with the optional 360° obstacle detection LiDAR up to 40m and Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) survey-grade GNSS positioning systems.

The Cerana X8 is proudly designed and manufactured in Singapore. It ships with all the peripherals needed for trained pilots to conduct VLOS flight operations.
