Delair, a supplier of commercial drone solutions based in Toulouse, France, announced the commercial availability of Delair Ag, described by the company as a comprehensive drone solution specifically designed for agriculture and forestry.
Built around the Delair UX11 Ag, a new fixed-wing drone optimized for the agriculture industry, and Delair Aerial Intelligence (delair.ai), industry’s most powerful aerial intelligence platform, Delair Ag provides a complete, integrated and easy-to-use workflow to collect, manage, analyze and share agriculture data.
Developed for agricultural companies, service providers, and researchers, Delair Ag unlocks the value of drone-based data, whether it is for crop health monitoring, field experimentation analysis, automatic machine guidance, precision ag practices or better crop traceability.
“The Delair UX11 Ag combines the productivity benefits of long-range/BVLOS flight operations with highly accurate survey-grade mapping and plant data collection capabilities, while the Delair Aerial Intelligence platform enables a new level of precision agriculture and helps maximize the quality of crops and yields.” Explained Lénaïc Grignard, product manager for the agriculture & forestry offer at Delair.
The Delair UX11-Ag fixed-wing drone, designed for BVLOS flights, reduces the amount of time and money required to provide detailed surveys of large-scale agriculture operations. With a flight time of up to 52 minutes, the Delair UAV typically covers up to 150 ha (370 ac) per flight (or up to 30 ha/25 ac in 10 minutes) at 150m (400 ft).
The Delair UX11-Ag features the MicaSense RedEdge MX, a fully integrated high-grade multispectral camera to see the plant level of most crops and provide the industry’s best quality agriculture data. The sensor generates plant health indexes and RGB (color) images and is calibrated for precise, repeatable measurements.
