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., a recognized technology and industry leader in small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS), is an original manufacturer with over 15 years of experience. Draganfly has partnered with data acquisition industry leaders such as Pix4D to provide aerial mapping, geo-referenced 2D mosaics, 3D surface models, and point clouds. Draganfly systems are used in a wide range of applications for agriculture, public safety, aerial photography & videography, industrial inspection, geo-mapping, and search & rescue work worldwide.
