The eBee SQ‘s precise, calibrated multispectral imagery provides reliable insights into the real health of your crops. The eBee SQ is built around Parrot’s ground-breaking Sequoia camera. This fully-integrated and highly precise multispectral sensor captures data across four non-visible bands, plus visible RGB imagery—in just one flight

The eBee SQ can cover hundreds of acres in a single flight for extremely efficient crop monitoring and analysis. This means:

  • Larger coverage
  • Fewer flight
  • Less time collecting data
  • More time acting on it

The eBee SQ includes their proprietary eMotion Ag flight planning and ground station software, making the process of creating a flight plan really simple. Is compatible with your existing FMIS, ag machinery and workflow. You can process your data using any popular software of your choice such as Pix4Dmapper Ag/Prosoftware, MicaSense ATLAS or AIRINOV to create vegetation index maps

 This equipment can cost: $12,000+

The Lancaster 5 is fully autonomous and easy to use. Throw it like a paper airplane to launch and it automatically optimizes its flight plan to collect data in the most efficient way. After completing the mission, it lands itself. With smart flight controls, the drone adjusts to various payloads and unpredictable environmental conditions to get the data you need

The Lancaster 5 is equipped with plug-n-play sensors that can be swapped in the field without configuration. The sensor package includes LIDAR and Hyperspectral imaging along with the standard thermal/visual/multispectral and it can be spec-ed out depending on your needs

The Lancaster 5 is part of PrecisionHawk’s complete aerial information platform:

Mapping and analysis software

  • Works with any drone providing accurate 2D and 3D maps of the flight location
  • Stitches individual photos together to create geo-referenced mosaics
  • Search survey data with filters, visualize, edit and share data with clients or colleagues.
  • Cloud-based and desktop subscriptions available

Flight Planning Software

  • Create flight plans for the Lancaster 5 by importing areas of interest you already have defined in shape files. Flight Planner will generate a new flight plan for each shape it finds in your shape file. Simply set the resolution at which you’d like to capture imagery and you’re ready to fly

Uav Tracking & Monitoring Software

  • PrecisionFlight enables you to have access to real time information about your Lancaster 5’s location, flight path, altitude, and battery health to ensure it’s performing perfectly on every flight

This equipment can cost: $25,000+

The Omni features a fully-gimbaled mount on a quad-rotor UAV, which means you can direct your sensor to look anywhere — up, down and around in virtually any direction

The OmniAg drone, paired with a Sentera Double 4K Sensor streams LiveNDVI Video to a user’s mobile device in real-time, while the drone is still in the air

The Double 4K has the cutting-edge data processing technology, making read-outs in the field super-fast. It features dual zoom levels, which allows simultaneous capture of wide angle field of view (FOV) that can audit a structure, and then instantly see 12MP of detail in a narrow FOV lens

For agricultural applications, the Double 4K can capture high-resolution color, NIR, and NDVI data — all at the same time, in a single flight. The Omni also accepts other sensors including the DJI Zenmuse X3, Z3, XT, and the new Z30 sensors

Sentera omni Ag has covered with the AgVaultsoftware platform

This equipment can cost: $16,995
