The use of Multispectral Imaging gives the advantage of seeing things that the naked eye would otherwise miss.

Saskatoon, SK (PRWEB) April 22, 2014

Multispectral imaging has long been used to collect data-rich images which reveal things not visible to the naked eye, but equipment for this has traditionally been bulky, heavy, and expensive. Taking advantage of the newly miniaturized Tetracam ADC Micro camera, Draganfly Innovations now provides this payload for their Draganflyer helicopter line. The Tetracam ADC Micro is highly sensitive to vegetation, making it ideal for monitoring crop and environmental health.

The new Tetracam multi-spectral payload system is mounted via a two-axis stabilized brushless gimbal and includes a wireless digital video down-link. The Tetracam ADC Micro camera comes with PixelWrench2 processing software including image editing programs and tools for managing and processing multi-spectral images.

Multi-spectral imaging provides a quick visual means to assess the health of crops and identify damage caused by pests or invasive weed growth. From this data, the proper corrective action can be determined. Combining multi-spectral imaging technology with state-of-the-art Draganfly helicopter systems provide a convenient means for farmers, agriculture consultants, and insurance companies to quickly inspect, measure, and assess crop health or damage, using aerial spot checks or large acreage coverage.

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