  • “We have been working with Carbonix to help carry out safer network repairs. Long-range drone technology enables ‘easy’ remote access for us to inspect our network and get it back online quickly whilst keeping our people safe. Drone technology also makes the process much more efficient in terms of cost and deployability than the helicopters we currently deploy.”

    Nick Hart, SA Power Networks
    Asset Assessment Manager
  • Carbonix’s long-range surveillance solution, will be used as the centrepiece of Ausgrid’s ambitious plans to replace tasks traditionally completed with manned aircraft to improve service and reduce customer disruption and cost to serve.”

  • “Carbonix was chosen in a competitive tender process to provide the aerial platform for the research program…to evaluate autonomous scout drones for bushfire ignition detection and be part of the ANU-Optus Bushfire Research Centre of Excellence, co-funded by Optus and ANU.”

    Professor Robert Mahony, Australian National University
    Deputy Director of the ANU-Optus Bushfire Research Centre of Excellence
  • “Working with Australian RPA manufacturer Carbonix, the Volanti Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) RPA was the choice for autonomous flights up to 2 hours.”

  • “Carbonix has been supporting Fugro’s Australian long-range maritime and land project using state-of-the-art aerial surveying and data capture technology. The nature of these projects is extremely varied and dynamic and Carbonix’s response to change has been outstanding. Fugro looks forward to more successful projects with Carbonix’s continued support as we expand our remote operations capabilities.”

Payloads for every industry or job

Working closely with our sensor partners ensures we are always ahead of new sensors and technology on the market to give our customers the best solution. 

Here at Carbonix we offer a wide range of payload sensor options to suit every industry and application. We have a selection of Gimbals and Micro Gimbal cameras for Intelligence, Reconnaissance and Surveillance (ISR) applications, high end photogrammetry cameras for mapping and GIS and multispectral sensors for vegetation and landform characterisation. In addition, we also offer a high-end LiDAR solution for topographic mapping where vegetation canopy cover may reduce visibility. 

We are also pleased to offer customisation and integration of specific payloads outside our sensor partners. Have a sensor in mind? Get in touch and find out how we can assist you. 

Long Flight Times

Take your drone to new destinations

Want to fly Extended Visual Line of Sight (EVLOS) and Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS), we have you covered. Both our airframes are designed and tested for both EVLOS and BVLOS operations. 

Here at Carbonix we understand our customers are always in search for the best value system for a better return on their investment. To maximise your output for minimum input, high endurance fixed-wing UAVs out compete both multi rotors and manned rotary aircraft. 

The all electric Volanti gives customers a flight time of up to 2 hours, providing an ideal balance between aircraft weight (16 kg MTOW) and aerial data capture quality.

The hybrid Ottano boasts a forward flight time of more than 6 hours and can carry a multiple payload options to provide you exceptionally high quality aerial data.

Fast & Efficient

Get up and running within minutes


Our UAVs can be assembled out of their cases and ready for flight in less than 15 minutes.


Both Volanti and Ottano can be dismantled in minutes and pack in to a bespoke hard carry case that fits in all modern vans and most single cab pickup trucks.  

Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL)

VTOL is the quickest to get your UAV airborne and maintain the integrity of sensors and avionics. Without the need for landing strips, bulky catapults and clumsy belly landings you remain mobile, your UAV can be up in no time, and your payloads last longer. 

Take off area

VTOL also requires a take-off area of less than 10m2 to give you access to some hard to reach areas and ensures both Volanti and Ottano are all terrain UAVs.
