Our solution




We offer an end-to-end solution from image acquisition to maintenance insights to optimise your aircraft inspection process.

More than just pictures

Donecle offers a full end-to-end solution which goes far beyond image acquisition.
We help you get your aircraft back in the air in 3 steps.

Discover how it works

Step 1: Inspect

Collect images automatically 

Our drone automatically scans and collects high-resolution images of the inspected structure.

  • Drone flight directly launched from a tablet via intuitive interface (no pilot required)
  • For complete aircraft inspection: coverage of the entire external surface, including fuselage, wings, engine nacelles and tailplane, including lower surfaces
  • Inspection of an entire narrowbody in less than 1 hour
  • One single flight addresses multiple applications

Step 2: Analyse & Report

Turn data into actionable insights
Pictures are automatically sent and processed in our image analysis software:

  • Improved efficiency and productivity: autonomous diagnostics suggested by the software allows the inspector to validate a pre-filled report
  • Damages and defects accurately positioned according to structural elements (frames, stringers, ribs, etc.)
  • Automated report generation for general visual inspections, paint wear, regulatory markings, lightning strikes
  • Multiple job cards completed with a single drone flight to determine next maintenance actions

Images taken by the drone are displayed on a 3D model of the aircraft with easy navigation tools. Our software allows image visualization, zoom in/out and provides the exact location of the picture relative to aircraft structural elements. Specific tools provide automated analysis of defects, markings and paint quality.

Donecle measuring dent and buckle on aircraft surface
Thanks to the 3D sensor onboard of our Iris 3D drone, we automatically detect and measure dents on aircraft surface, down 0.1mm depth accuracy.

We assist the inspector in the general visual inspection process, giving tools to identify and categorize defects and damages on the aircraft surface. Our algorithms based on machine learning suggest defects to accelerate the time of this process, including lightning strike. A report is automatically produced to give a summary of observed defects and keep track.

The software automatically analyses and compares each regulatory marking to the customer’s database and tags them as good, missing or to be replaced. A report is then automatically generated to give status of markings with direct retrieval of P/N number for easy and reliable reordering.

Our software provides an indication on the state of the aircraft’s livery and paint by automatically mapping rivet/screw rash and peeling on the aircraft skin. The final report assesses the global quality of paint wear to optimize painting programs and monitor paint aging evolution over time and across the fleet.

We automatically detect lightning strikes thanks to our computer vision algorithms and generate reports with precise location of impacts according to frame and stringers.

3D engine reconstitution for drone inspection


With Dronétix Technologie, we perform inspections of aircraft components. For parts such as landing gear or engines, the software allows you to visualise your part in 3D, virtually rotate around the part, zoom in/out and inspect. Finalise the report to get traceability on each inspections.

Step 3: Trace & Predict

Build objective digital history

Inspection data and reports are systematically saved on Donecle’s secure cloud platform:

  • Remote access to inspection reports allowing secured sharing with your team of experts
  • Traceability over time to track evolutions or run benchmarks across your fleet
  • Digital history unlocking the potential for data mining and predictive maintenance
  • Aircraft inspection dashboard and information on drone and software updates
  • One-click access to Donecle’s technical documentation and support</b>

Our Technology

From the release of our first Drone end of 2018 to the new Iris family, our products are designed to meet high standards.

No pilot

Our unique patented laser technology allows precise positioning (centimetric) and does not require GPS or external sensor.


Our fail-safe design guarantees the mission’s safety thanks to hardware redundancy and obstacle detection.

Smart camera

The camera gimbal is automatically piloted to follow every curvature to provide clear images all around.


Our drone enables detection of: defects down to 1mm² , dent down to 0.1mm, and ensures accurate frame/stringer positioning of damages.
