Intel Falcon 8+ Drone

The Intel Falcon 8+ Drone has hit the market!

What is the fuss about?

The Intel® Falcon™ 8+ UAS is an advanced commercial multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) designed for professional use across oil & gas, construction, utilities and agriculture.  Some key advantages include:

  • Best weight-to-payload ratio
  • Captures detailed aerial data for 3D reconstruction down to millimeter accuracy.
  • Can be programmed to fly an automated path, capturing photos at predetermined waypoint locations.
  • Equipped with triple redundant autopilot, providing remarkable stability, compensating for external factors such as strong winds and offering resistance to electromagnetic fields.

This helps ensure high reliability in the field, efficient flights, and precise data with every flight.

Some use cases

Oil and Gas

Commercial drones are disrupting the oil and gas industry. By utilizing the Intel® Falcon™ 8+ system to conduct close inspections when operations are live and online, companies are realizing decreased downtime, reduced risk to workers, and optimized costs. Additionally, commercial drones are ideal for capturing visual or thermal images of flare stacks, underdecks, cooling towers and chimneys, and confined spaces.


The construction market is set to grow across all phases of the building lifecycle, from design to construction and operation, and potentially even demolition. More recently in the design phase, drone data and insights lend themselves well to the Building Information Modeling (BIM) approach. In the construction phase, drones offer a quicker way to develop work plans based on site surveys and can help monitor a site’s status while projects are underway. Intel® Falcon™ 8+ system offers safe and low-cost inspection solutions and progress monitoring tools to assist with ongoing building operations and management.


Utility asset management will be a critical challenge for the next decade and companies are seeking opportunities for preventive repairs, instead of risking costly outages. Regular inspections by commercial drones like the Intel® Falcon™ 8+ drone are an ideal solution for maintenance. Drones can be the eyes-in-the-sky for power line, pipeline, and clean energy assets utility crews.


Agriculture is getting a lift from the insights provided by maps generated from images captured by commercial drones. For example, scanning for irrigation breaks and plant counting for yield prediction via drone allows farmers to focus on areas that need the most help. Additionally, tools for monitoring plant health, like multispectral sensors, can enable better optimized crop yields for farmers, while reducing water consumption and fertilization costs.
