Autonomous drones for your farming needs
Capable of carrying 25 lbs and more of liquid, our sprayer drones are supported by rapid refueling through mobile command centers (MCCs), and can provide uninterrupted coverage over large areas.
AD Cloud for smart farming
Selecting the right hardware and ground control infrastructure, along with flight routes and scheduling, are set up through AD Cloud.
With precision drops, you can achieve very high efficiencies in the usage of fertilizers, pesticides and water.
Need assessment for small and large farms
Initial survey mission determines the treatment plan in great detail before any mission begins.
Drones specialized with thermal and spectroscopic sensors can gather image and video data that allows you to understand the current state of your farmland. Based on this data, a detailed 3D model is generated, which guides the spraying missions.
Efficient spraying at a fraction of the cost
AD Cloud powered autonomous drones can drop payloads with great precision, saving costs on materials and improving the environmental footprint. For example, water usage can be greatly reduced with precision drops at ideal times, while not affecting the overall crop yields.
How crop spraying works with AD Cloud
It begins with a comprehensive survey
Every farmland has its unique requirements. AD Cloud can use survey mission data to capture deficiencies on a particular farm, or import them from already existing external data. This is crucial for preparing appropriate UAV missions.
AD UAVs offer fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide and water payloads across a range of hardware capabilities. Depending on the area and the type of solution in consideration, AD will deliver the most optimum configurations.
UAV flights are autonomous, can be scheduled in advanced and even set into motion on a periodic basis. For semi-permanent on-site deployment, which is best suited for smaller farms, this can be a simple one-touch operation, without involving AD personnel.
MCCs and the 'air-bridge'
For large farms, the use of MCCs is essential, along with AD trained personnel to ensure smooth operations that provide continuous or large-scale coverage. For example, a farm may want to use UAVs to meet all its watering requirements given the greater efficiency the solution offers. This would entail a continuous 'air-bridge' that would supply water in great quantities over a short period of time.
