Echar 20D

Echar 20D

The RPA Echar 20D is in its 4th generation, consolidating itself as one of the most reliable drones in Brazil. Indicated for the mapping of medium and large areas, the XMobots super drone brings innovations that have contributed to make its operation simpler, versatile and robust.

In addition to high aeronautical technology, the Echar 20D uses avionics that are the state of the art in technology of drones focused on BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) flights. Currently, the equipment is the only drone in Brazil prepared for flights beyond the line of sight. Its BVLOS certification process is being processed by ANAC, and is expected to close in 2018.

Features of Echar 20D

Ideal for mapping areas over 1,000 hectares, Echar has as one of its main highlights the high capacity of mapping. It can cover 7,000 acres on a single flight. It also has positional accuracy of a few centimeters without the need for collection of control points, besides the possibility to board angled sensors like the 2M3 and 2M5 system.

Thus, they are characteristics like these, which allow the Echar to attend a large number of applications, such as precision agriculture, environmental monitoring, topography, geoprocessing, mining, among many others.

HA (High Accuracy) system: Accuracy of a few centimeters – no need for control points

Cordless battery compartment

Built-in 24 mp camera APS-C sensor in 1M3 version (R, G and B) or 1M5 (R, G, B, Nir and RedEge): isolated from dirt and easy access to the memory card

In addition to the BVLOS version, Echar 20D is available in configurations:

HAG Technology

HAG Technology was launched by XMobots in May 2019 as an evolution of the highly acclaimed HA (High Accuracy) that led XMobots products to achieve the next level in mapping with drones.

Now the consolidated RTK / PPK system that guarantees positional accuracy of a few centimeters – without need for collection of control points – starts using GNSS L1 and L2 of the Trimble brand. Through an unprecedented partnership between Trimble and XMobots, the HAG system allows direct connection to the GNSS Trimble AG bases.

As a result, the system guarantees positional accuracy on the order of 2cm, with total elimination of control points. In this way, XMobots helps your customers reduce costs in drone mapping, generating great results that contribute to better decisions.

In this configuration, the 1M3 camera is integrated with HAG technology. With 24 mp resolution in the RGB spectrum, it comes embedded in the Arator fuselage. Thus, it is isolated from dirt and with easy access to the memory card.
This payload comes with all power, calibration, trigger and georeferencing devices, transforming the camera into an aerial photogrammetric camera.

Mirrorless camera

APS-C sensor with 3.9m pixel pitch and 3-line linescan technology (blue, green and red)

Minimum shutter of 1/4000

Minimum resolution of 24.3 mp

16mm fixed focal length


In this unprecedented fixed-wing drone configuration, HAG technology is integrated into the multispectral camera developed by XMobots 1M5. For the first time in the market of drones, this innovation allows to obtain multispectral images with positional accuracy of a few centimeters, besides high geometric and radiometric quality.
The 1M5 camera contains 5 spectrum bands (R, G, B, Nir and RedEdge), captured separately by an APS-C CMOS sensor of 24mp. In this way, in a single flight it is possible to obtain orthophotos RGB, Nir and RedEdge with high accuracy.

Lens with fixed focal length of 20mm

Integration with HA system: for the first time it is possible to have a multispectral image with accuracy

HAG2M3 and HAG2M5: higher productivity

The need to map thousands of hectares on few flights is a reality in countries like Brazil. In it, the demands for mapping gigantic areas require maximum productivity in the results. But to get high accuracy, the difficulty of access and the long time for the implementation of control points in these large areas often make projects unviable, generating excessive costs and very low productivity.
In an attempt to address this problem, XMobots® introduces Echar 20D in the HAG2M3 and HAG2M5 versions. The Echar comes with the HAG system boarded with two 24 mp three-band (blue, green, red) or five-band APS-C CMOS sensors (blue, green, red, RedEdge725nm and NIR 850nm).
With the xMx camera technology, the positioning of the two oblique sensors allows to obtain 2X the mapping capacity of the Echar 20D. Thus, it allows the coverage of up to 7300 hectares in a single flight.
