Save time, money, and your yield with the data you need at every stage of your operation. Agricultural drones improve planning, and monitoring of crops from planting to harvest.
We offer year round aerial image collection that is specific to the needs of your situation. This can include LiDAR, Multispectral Imaging, Photogrammetry, Full Motion video or forms of data using various sensors specific to your outcome needs. Our platforms are sensor agnostic and with a consultation meeting to discuss needs, we can establish what kind of sensor is best for your project.
Sensors Available for Data Collection
Full Motion Video (FMV)
Full Motion Video (FMV) is at the forefront of the modern Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance (ISR) process. It combines real-time High Definition (HD) video with metadata to deliver rich context to any scenario. FMV provides relevant, detailed, in-depth information ready for ingestion into existing GIS workflows to deliver powerful insights from airborne platforms.
Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR)
Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), is a remote sensing method that combines pulsed lasers with positional data to generate precise, 3D models of terrain, objects and key features. LiDAR has numerous applications for forestry, agriculture, mining, surveying and infrastructure applications, including for emergency management and disaster reconnaissance.
Combining positional data with high-resolution airborne imagery is used to produce georeferenced orthomosaic maps for use in various GIS and information applications. Captured with autonomous aircraft, photogrammetry enables the classification of imagery to determine plant species, health (using NIR sensors) and can also be used for cut and fill analysis for volumetrics.
Multispectral sensors measure the electromagnetic spectrum in discrete, discontinuous bands. The different wavelengths of light collected are stitched together to create a geographically accurate mosaic of the environment. They are instrumental in plant health and management by identifying nutrient deficiencies, pest infestation, water quality, soil content (minerals) and many other applications.
The need for information is only increasing: data collection should be frequent, low cost and with very little impact on the environment. The aircraft that Pegasus develops and flies emit 100-200x less GHG emissions than the standard helicopters currently being used for data collection. Move your company towards a greener path by choosing technology that disrupts the status quo and contributes to the fight against climate change.
