To contribute to safer skies and increase traceability and accountability, all FIXAR outdoor drones will be equipped with additional BlackBox systems from September 2021. Data extraction from the device is performed simply and wirelessly and geotagging is enabled even when the drone is powered off.


The FIXAR BlackBox is an extended feature that allows the system to record complete and detailed information of onboard flight activities and parameters. The advanced logging system can record and store information of settings, missions, sensor data, user commands, automatic control and payload information.

Consisting of a separate, lightweight module that records all flight data into technical logs, the FIXAR BlackBox LogExport software will process these logs for user purposes. This feature allows geotagging to be available to operators at any time, even if the drone is powered off. The user or any other party are not able to interfere or modify the logged data, and data extraction from the device is performed wirelessly for an effortless process. 

The BlackBox was designed to increase safety by providing detailed data for mission analysis, identify faults in case of incidents, and contribute to a more efficient monitoring, problem-solving, and overall UAV industry security and development. It can also act as a back-up system for the data collected by the payload – laser scanner, video or photo camera. The metadata of the mission can be exported using LogExport software with no data loss.  

“The number of unmanned aircrafts filling the sky is increasing and alarming the necessity for safe and reliable solutions to trace and keep the vehicles accountable,” says Vasily Lukashov, founder and CEO at FIXAR. “The BlackBox is the answer – data logs of the device serve as a main source of expertise in the event of an incident and allows storing and analyzing the statistics of flight and fault tolerance often requested by the regulators.”
