AGRO-UAV

Introduction
The AGRO-UAV is a revolutionary mini agriculture plane that will change the way you manage your crops, fields or any part of your agricultural operation, by providing high resolution GPS based digital images for precision agriculture. Hand launched, the AGRO-UAV includes a miniature autopilot, camera, GPS and software to provide images on demand.

How it Works
The AGRO-UAV is a radio controlled model glider plane equipped with a Trimble GPS, a miniature autopilot and Pentax digital camera. Hand launched and automatic from take off to landing, the AGRO-UAV provides high resolution GPS based images on demand. Simply stand at one corner of your field and hand launch the 6 pound AGRO-UAV plane. The powerful miniature autopilot and Trimble GPS, does the rest navigating in a pattern over the field. Both the AGRO-UAV and the camera perform automatically to take GPS based digital imagery. After the flight the AGRO-UAV will land in the spot you started from. For further analysis, you can choose and zoom in on each image separately. Each individual image is GPS based with latitude, longitude and altitude. Finally, the AGRO-UAV Image Software allows you to export images in TIFF format with associated World files (.tfw) for use with other Geo reference software.

Benefits
Precision agriculture has become a buzz word for the agriculture industry and has received growing attention. In addition to GPS mapping, auto steer and variable rate spray, GPS aerial images are being used for crop analysis such as plague scouting, disease scouting and plant development. Traditional aerial images provided by satellite, manned aircraft or stock photography are often expensive, difficult to obtain or outdated. The AGRO-UAV provides GPS based digital images on demand throughout the growing season. The images obtained through the AGRO-UAV will allow producers to detect, locate, and better assess the actions required to correct the problem.

increased spatial resolution can be achieved by simply programming the AGRO-UAV to fly closer to the ground. Satellite based systems may go months before your area of interest has imagery acquired for it. Satellite based systems may only acquire imagery for your area of interest every 16 days. • Satellite based systems have a lag between when the imagery is acquired and when you can purchase it. .Applications            Aerial imagery Crop monitoring Security Land management Environmental Real estate Traffic monitoring Mapping Archeology Wild life monitoring Remote sensing What is the spatial resolution of the imagery acquired from AGRO-UAV? Images acquired at 2100 feet above the ground have a spatial resolution of approximately 15 cm. Environmental Monitoring AGRO-UAV provides flexibility and economic deployment that allows for a regular schedule of imagery to be acquired. • Increased temporal resolution means AGRO-UAV can be deployed to acquire imagery where you need. This includes specie identification and extent as well as volume calculations. • Assist in the identification of crop scout locations and create waypoints that can be loaded on to your GPS unit. when you need. With AGRO-UAV you will have the imagery within minutes of it landing and within a few hours if more complex image processing is required. The images can be acquired and viewed almost instantaneously. • Get piece of mind with a permanent record of the extent of crop damage. • Spatial resolution of 15 cm is 40. Technical specs         Camera: 12MP Wingspan: 80cm Weight: 500g Speed: 30-50km/h Endurance: 30min Operational range: up to 20km Data link: up to 2km Can operate in winds up to 25km/h Agriculture AGRO-UAV gives timely imagery that allows producers and those who advise them to make more informed decisions which can save money. Forestry High resolution imagery gathered from the AGRO-UAV will allow forest companies and private land owners to assess their woodlots.000 times better than that of some of the most widely used satellite systems and has 44 times more resolution then the most advanced satellite based systems currently in operation. More informed and accurate forest cut block boundary with help ensure these resources stay healthy for future generations. including: • Acquire imagery below the cloud canopy allowing for imagery acquisition even on cloudy days. • Quickly and accurately decide whether or not to spray and where. However. How does AGRO-UAV imagery compare to satellite imagery? There are a number of advantages that AGRO-UAV has over traditional satellite based image acquisition systems. This opens the door to many land and water environmental monitoring applications which were previously not economically viable.
