Parrot is widely known in the drone industry for its consumer drones, but the company wants to start making a name for itself on the commercial side.

The company announced two new B2B drone solutions. The new offerings focuses on precision agriculture for farmers and agronomists as well as mapping and inspection industries including construction, real east and architecture.

“Parrot has identified commercial activities where its drones — proposed with a complete solution — are focused on providing efficiency and knowledge to save time, perform better and generate more revenue/business,” the company wrote in a statement.

The new offerings will be provided as part of Parrots Professional solutions, which are end to end tools built on the company’s existing consumer drones. “Parrot, which is covering the entire drone ecosystem (from drones to sensors, including piloting and data processing software, as well as recommendations and services) decided to extend its commercial offer with the creation of its Parrot Professional range, dedicated to small and medium business,” according to a blog post.

For agriculture, the company’s Disco-Pro AG enables businesses to better manage production and yields as well as collect relevant data to analyze the health of their crops.

For industries such as construction and real estate, the company’s thermal imaging solution Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal and Parrot Bebop-Pro 3D Modeling solution will help professionals survey, monitor and reach hard to access areas, as well as capture photos, record videos and generate 3D models. “This first set of entry-level end-to-end professional UAV solutions highlights Parrot’s commitment to the civil commercial drones market,” the company wrote. “With an extensive range covering both consumer and commercial drones? ecosystems (UAVs, sensors, software, services) and now “Prosumer? systems, Parrot reaffirms its ambition to expand as a leading player on the civil drones market.”
