Draganfly Pro-Ag Package offers Turnkey Agricultural Remote Sensing Solution Utilizing MicaSense RedEdge Multispectral Camera

Draganflyer ProAg Package - CIR Composite

Draganfly Innovations Inc. releases an advanced precision agriculture solution that redefines the way agricultural data is collected and viewed. The camera simultaneously captures five discrete spectral bands, which provide useful data for monitoring crops and environmental health.

March 16, 2015 – Unmanned aerial vehicles are instrumental in collecting multispectral imaging and provide data rich images, which are not visible to the naked eye. Draganfly Innovations now provides an all-inclusive solution that can plan, fly, and process advanced multispectral data. The Draganflyer Pro-Ag package is a comprehensive and powerful tool for farmers and researchers to gather the information needed to make better decisions.

The Draganflyer Pro-Ag package consists of a compact, ready-to-fly vertical take-off and landing UAV, rugged transport case, Draganfly Surveyor flight planning software, the third generation MicaSense RedEdge 5-band multispectral camera, and 2-axis stabilized gimbal. Built for efficiency, Draganfly Surveyor is easy to use and allows multi-flight mapping in situations when the project requires multiple flights to cover the area. Surveyor will automatically “join” the flights to create one seamless project. Ultimately, it’s all about acquiring high quality, precise aerial data.

The collected imagery is used to assess the health of crops and identify damage caused by pests or invasive weed growth. The scientific-grade multispectral imagery provides accurate and repeatable crop health maps so that the proper corrective course of action can then be determined. The combination of the MicaSense RedEdge and Draganflyer UAV provides a quick and effective solution for agricultural consultants and farmers worldwide.

Draganfly Innovations Inc. and University of Saskatchewan to Partner for Precision Agriculture Research

Draganflyer X4-P at U of S

Tiny helicopters flying over crop fields may become a common sight thanks to a research partnership between the U of S and a Saskatoon-based company.

Saskatoon, SK (University of Saskatchewan News) February 12, 2015

Drones outfitted with a specialized camera will enable agriculture producers to get real-time information on the health of their crops and improve management practices, explained Gordon Gray, professor in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources. Gray has a background in photosynthetic florescence imaging of plants, and all it took was a phone call from Draganfly Innovations Inc. last year for the idea of using drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for imaging to take flight.

Draganfly specializes in drone technology and turned to Gray for his expertise in plant imaging. “They said they wanted to meet and explore the potential of imaging crops with these drone helicopters,” he said. The drones, which are small enough to fit in a suitcase when unassembled, were outfitted with a camera “capable of capturing multispectral images,” Gray explained. “Essentially, it measures the reflection of leaves and vegetation in the fields it flies over.”

Draganfly Innovations Inc. to Request Permission from City of Saskatoon for Flights Over City Property

Zenon Dragan with Draganflyer X6

Draganfly Innovations Inc. will be making a pitch to the City of Saskatoon transportation committee for clearance to operate, and land, the Draganflyer sUAS systems on city property. Under federal laws, people and organizations that operate unmanned aerial vehicles must contact property owners and obtain their consent before flying the devices over their land.

All flights would be conducted on an “as necessary or required basis.”, under Transport Canada’s Special Flights Operations guidelines, for such operations as search and rescue missions, crime scene investigations and infrastructure inspections.

The Draganflyer X6 sUAS has been flown in the Saskatoon area, in partnership with the Saskatoon City Police, for accident scene investigation, and to document the crash of a manned aircraft in 2011.
