senseFly Adds Multispectral Sensor to eBee Ag UAV - 09/02/2016

Swiss professional UAV manufacturer senseFly has confirmed that Parrot’s Sequoia multispectral sensor – announced in early February at World Ag Expo in Tulare, California, USA and due to launch in March 2016 – will be immediately available for its eBee Ag UAV. Sequoia is one of the smallest and lightest multispectral UAS sensor released to date. It captures images of crops across four highly defined, visible and non-visible spectral bands, plus RGB imagery. In just one flight, agronomists, crop consultants and farmers can capture all the aerial data required to monitor and respond to the health of crops throughout the growing season. eBee Ag users will be able to benefit immediately from Sequoia’s performance, said Jean-Christophe Zufferey, CEO and co-founder of senseFly. This will allow them to collect more actionable crop data than ever before, over much larger areas than multi-rotor drones can cover, and with the confidence that comes from using the drone rated number one in sub-1kg performance, all backed by professional senseFly support. Multispectral and RGB Sequoia includes four 1.2MP sensors that capture data over four spectral bands (near-infrared, red-edge, red and green), plus a 16MP RGB sensor, allowing both analytical data and visible imaging to […]
