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.

Draganflyer X6 with FLIR

The Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue at Texas A&M University uses many different robotic platforms, including the Draganflyer X6, for both for study and real life scenarios. The director for the center, Dr. Robin Murphy, is often called upon for many disaster relief scenarios where she can bring her knowledge and impressive robots toolkit to aid in applicable situations. With the amount of work she has conducted in the field, she has proven herself as one of the leading experts in how robotic technologies, such as the Draganflyers, can save lives.

Draganflyer X8 UAV Used by CSIRO to Monitor Bushfires in Australia

In Australia, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) division of Land & Water has been experimenting with the Draganflyer X8 UAV for studying and monitoring wildfires.

CSIRO as been working closely with local fire authorities in order to track the progress of experimental and controlled burns. Time-lapse images or high-resolution video with thermal cameras are used to measure changes in fire intensity as a fire-front spreads across an area.

Draganflyer UAVs with Pix4D Mapping Software make Collision and Crime Scene Reconstruction Quick and Easy with Improved Accuracy

Draganflyer UAVs have been the go to solution for many public safety agencies using an unmanned system for their collision and crime scene reconstruction needs.

Draganfly Innovations and Pix4D have teamed up to offer a package which gives the ability to create 2D Orthomosaic, 3D DSM and Point Cloud models using imagery from the Draganflyer and the Pix4DMapper software, with centemeter grade accuracy. The Draganflyer Surveyor Software bundled with the package gives the operator the ability to create autonomous, grid pattern flight plans for convenient, complete coverage flights.

See how the RCMP have utilized the Draganflyer UAV and Pix4D Software in the Video above, or directy on YouTube.
