Capabilities: Agriculture

The opportunities for UAV use in agriculture are endless. Never before has it been so easy and so fast to gain a complete and timely view of hundreds of acres of crop. Combined with recent advancements in compact multispectral sensing, farm owners and crop management agencies alike can gain priceless, real-time information on the health of their fields.

Our UAVs have been tested with a variety of sensing equipment, including standard camera imaging, NDVI, infrared (thermal), NIR, and more. And, we continue to work with industry leaders to develop new applications for this versatile technology, including micro-fertilization, remote scouting, and more.

It’s Much Clearer Up Here

Our UAVs can be fitted with a variety of sensing equipment, including near-infrared (NIR) cameras capable of producing high-resolution multispectral imagery, including Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and other indices. Multispectral cameras detect and measure light in the areas outside human vision, which contain some key indicators of plant health. This information can help infer the level of photosynthesis occurring, and in turn, the health of the vegetation. Previously used by NASA from Earth-orbiting satellites, UAV-based multispectral sensing can deliver much higher resolution imagery (down to 2cm) for precision agriculture.
