Aerial Drone Security
Aerial surveys are being used increasingly more by farmers as it is easier, safer and faster to use a drone rather than physical manpower. Drone surveys can quickly and easily identify your border security; checking for any security breaches or areas that require repairs. A simple video or series of photographs can easily allow you to visually inspect and identify areas that may require immediate attention.
Advantages of using a drone for security…
By utilising the DroneDeploy software (based in California, USA), we pre-program the area to be surveyed. The drone then gets airborne and flies the pre-programmed route taking up to as many as 2,000 photos (usually considerably less. About 3 acres is about 500).
By using sophisticated technology, our drone will simply fly over your land taking a series of images/videos. The main purpose of the Plant Health layer is to allow you to explore your agricultural data even more deeply. You can adjust the contrast to highlight variability within a field. Once you have identified the relevant plant health ranges, the “thresholding” tool allows you to quantify damage and predict yields by showing the area within a specific range.
We can spot variations and problem areas in NDVI, VARI and more. We can show real time insights with Live Map; crop scout and ground truth without leaving the field. The data can be exported to integrate with your Farm Management Software. They would want to use this as it will allow the Farmers to take in-field action to avoid crop loss and minimise losses but maximise revenue.
Visual Inspection Video Surveys
Our team understands the importance of monitoring agricultural products. That is why every aerial photograph we take is unique to the specific client. Whether it be a photo for security reasons, a promotional photo for social media or a photo to visually inspect your livestock and plant health, we ensure each mission is tailored to your specific requirements.
