The images captured by the drone are processed with the software Pix4Dmapper Ag / Pro, with MicaSense ATLAS o AIRINOV, three solutions based on data storage in the cloud. As a result, this process offers valuable information about crops, such as NDVI indices, which analyze the development of crops based on the radiation they emit or reflect. These data help to know various indicators of crop health, such as chlorophyll levels.
Thanks to a flight autonomy of more than 55 minutes, During a single flight, the drone is capable of covering more than 200 hectares at a height greater than 120 meters.. Based on the statements made by the CEO of the company, Jean-Christophe ZuffereyThanks to this platform, an evolution in drone technology can be achieved with which operations acquire greater professionalism, the systems are easier to use and more ground can be covered in each flight.
