How It Works
Comprehensive Data Collection for Intelligent Decision Making
Volatus Aerospace utilizes a variety of multispectral sensors to provide comprehensive data to fulfill each customers’ unique requirements. These include the MicaSense Altum, Parrot Sequoia, and DJI M3 Multispectral.
TRAIT ASSESSMENTS OF PLOT TRIALS
Through the utilization of multispectral data, along with the application of the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Normalized Difference Red Edge (NDRE), Optimized Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index (OSAVI), Yellowness Index, and many other indices, Volatus Aerospace provides comprehensive, precise, and timely data that delivers quantitative measurements of your plot trials. This information aids in the identification of problematic areas within a field, such as sections facing challenges caused by diseases, pests, water scarcity, or nutrient deficiencies.
As a result, farmers can detect issues at an early stage and make well-informed and targeted decisions regarding field management. These decisions have the potential to enhance crop yields, conserve resources, and minimize waste and expenses.
Volatus Aerospace can provide measurements for various crop traits including:
Traditional methods, such as crop dusting aircraft, are quickly becoming outdated with high costs and imprecise application, leading to the unnecessary exposure of healthy plants to pesticides. Volatus Aerospace’s drone-based crop spraying services utilize advanced imaging and multispectral technology, including infrared and red-edge sensors, to identify and target specific areas of crops that require treatment. This precise application significantly boosts efficiency, leading to optimal resource utilization and a reduction in the overall amount of product required, aligning with consumer preferences for reduced chemical usage on their products.
This combination of enhanced efficiency, optimized resource utilization, and reduced chemical usage through precise drone-based application represents a significant advancement in crop maintenance and treatment. Our crop spraying service not only benefits farmers by improving crop health and reducing costs, but also meets the demands of environmentally conscious consumers who seek products with fewer chemical residues.
Approved Canada-Wide for
Heavy Spray Drone Operations
Volatus Aerospace has special authority to operate heavy spray drones, allowing us to offer compliant drone crop spraying services for precision agriculture clients on a national scale.
The current advanced drone regulations in Canada restrict the flight of a remotely piloted aircraft weighing over 25 kg within national airspace. The Transport Canada special authority given to Volatus Aerospace enables pilots trained through Volatus Aerospace’s training program, operating in compliance with Transport Canada’s conditions outlined in the approval, to operate throughout Canada.
For more information on the Transport Canada special authority approval, including the Volatus Aerospace agricultural flight training program, contact John Jonston, Sales Director for Agriculture at Volatus Aerospace.
