UAS and Agriculture

UAS monitoring provides clear advantages for farmers and ranchers. UAS permits the collection of high-resolution data on both spatial and temporal scales pertaining to crop health and production rates across an entire agricultural plot. The ultra-high resolution and flexible return times enable data-driven decisions providing direct benefits to efficiency, productivity, and quality control. Similar advantages are present in vegetation monitoring; data at fine temporal, spatial, and radiometric scales is key in effective forest management, fire response, and natural resource conservation.
