Dubbed “Phénix”, the drone is the first made by Tunisian domestic expertise, said Telnet Holding Director General, Mohamed Frikha.
Phénix can travel 800 km at 5,000 m in latitude for 8 hours. It will be used for multiple purposes, including service in agriculture sector, surveillance and delivery of equipment to places difficult for access.
Phénix is the first move by Telnet Holding to enter the drone market. The company in April 2018 embarked on drone production following a cooperation agreement with Japan’s Fuji IMVAC assigned to train Tunisian technicians and market the aircraft.
In April this year, the Firkha-led group offered two drones to the ministry of health in the fight against covid-19 pandemic.
