LandView Drones sells complete unmanned aerial systems customized specifically for agriculture. In most cases, the intended purpose of a customized system is for remote sensing of crop health. The best sensors/cameras are utilized on the right aircraft, flight control software, and image processing software for the job. The best systems deliver true multispectral imagery within minutes, and without any internet. The data can be immediately used to direct a crop scout to those areas of fields requiring the most attention, making crop scouting both more effective and efficient. While field crops are the primary market, the large acreage coverage of our fixed wing drone platforms also makes them of interest to other industries requiring high-resolution maps and digital elevation models.
