Intel has this week unveiled the first Intel-branded drone that will be launched for use in commercial settings.

Called the Falcon 8+, the drone has been designed for use with industrial inspection, surveying, and mapping by using an octocopter design and technology that was manufacturing by the Intel subsidiary Ascending Technologies.

The drone also features a set of rotors that were arranged in AscTec’s V formation, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour.


It also comes with a set of back-up batteries, with a set of communication systems built right into the drone and integration with the Intel Cockpit weatherproof controller.

This new controller has also been built for the commercial market, with a rugged build and a built-in display for monitoring the drone.

Of course, because this has been designed for the commercial market, you might not be able to pick up the device for yourself. You can read more about it at the source link below.
