We are starting a new season in the service of precision agriculture.

We are starting next week our 3rd season of phenotyping in agriculture by drone. We thus participate in the agronomic monitoring of the experimental micro-plots.

Our DJI Inspire 1 is now totally dedicated to drone phenotyping missions for precision agriculture. The RedEdgesM is a professional multispectral sensor. Installed under the drone, instead of the X3 or X5 camera, it captures in a single flight 5 spectral bands which generate health indices for the plants flown over. With our case of 12 batteries, the drone covers approximately 10ha at 30m ground for a GSD of 2cm, a perfect definition for experimental platforms organized in micro-plots. The Micasense kit allows positioning the GPS module and the light sensor (DLS) on top. The DLS measures light conditions during flight and allows compensation when lighting conditions are variable.


What are drones used for in agriculture?

For 3 years now, DCOMDRONE has been carrying out technical missions on behalf of companies specializing in the processing and analysis of aerial data by multirotor drone. Our know-how leads us to use sensors for visual imaging (RGB), multi-spectral imaging and thermal imaging. We know the different processes specific to each sensor, their operation, the necessary settings and optimum operating conditions to guarantee the recording of quality data that can be used in the post-processing phases. For this type of mission, the remote pilot must generally implement automatic flights which again require a great deal of rigor in the settings useful for the planning and execution of flights. Beyond this very technical know-how, DCOMDRONE is perfectly familiar with the regulations and all the rules applicable to the activity of drone operator and remote pilot in the fields of both administration and aviation safety.
