Agribotix, a drone-enabled agricultural intelligence company, has partnered with senseFly, producer of professional fixed-wing drones, to offer a new combined solution for professional users.
This technology solution combines drone, sensor and agricultural data processing technologies available today to make collecting and analyzing aerial data easier, with several times more coverage, per flight, than is possible with most quadcopter solutions.
Agribotix is bundling the eBee SQ with its FarmLens SaaS platform, a 100% agricultural data processing cloud solution. The eBee SQ is built around Parrot’s Sequoia sensor. This features multispectral sensors that capture calibrated data across four highly distinct spectral bands (near-infrared, red-edge, red and green), plus RGB imagery, in a single flight.
The FarmLens Professional subscription now being bundled with the eBee SQ gives users the unique ability to perform the full crop scouting workflow in the field: fly large areas efficiently, capture ground truthing images, make notes and share detailed information about trouble spots with farmers from the field.
Having purchased the combined solution, customers will be able to receive full professional hardware support via senseFly’s existing network of expert distribution partners.
