Multispectral Imaging Camera Drones In Farming Yield Big Benefits

Multispectral imaging agriculture drones with sensors

Multispectral imaging camera sensors on agricultural drones allow the farmer to manage crops, soil, fertilizing and irrigation more effectively.

There are huge benefits both to the farmer and to the wider environment by minimizing the use of sprays, fertilizers, wastage of water and at the same time increasing the yield from crops.

Multispectral camera remote sensing imaging technology use Green, Red, Red-Edge and Near Infrared wavebands to capture both visible and invisible images of crops and vegetation.

The multispectral images integrate with specialized agriculture software which output the information into meaningful data.

This land telemetry, soil and crop data allow the  grower to monitor, plan and manage the farm more effectively saving time and money along with reducing the use of pesticides.

What Are Drones Used For From Business To Critical Missions

What are drones used for answered with full list

What are drones used for answered here covering every sector you can think of.  Drones are being used to save lives, environment works, archaeology, farming, property management, mining, construction and much more.

We start by looking at what drones are used for in specific sectors and include some terrific videos along the way.

The drone industry is growing fast and every week we see press releases and research papers on what new areas drones are being used for.

The usage of drones in some of these sectors was originally completed using helicopters and airplanes. However, these are expensive to hire and not always available when they were required.

Using helicopters and airplanes is also very time consuming as they have to fly in from other locations and then do their work.

Along with present uses for drones, we also look at new drone uses, which are still in the experimental and research stages.  Without doubt, you will see hundreds of new uses for drones in the coming years.  There are also some terrific videos throughout this post.

DJI Inspire 1 Drone Review Including Zenmuse Camera Options

DJI Inspire 1 Design, Gimbal and Camera Review

This updated DJI Inspire 1 drone review takes a close look at the features, design, gimbal and camera options on both the Inspire Standard and Professional models.

The Inspire 1 has entered new territory in drone innovation, sleek design and patented motor and gimbal engineering.  The Inspire 1 drone is very versatile with various cameras and sensors options.

In this Inspire 1 review, we take a full look at its design, intelligent flight modes, gimbals and many camera options, along with a number of top Inspire 1 videos.  We answer the many frequently asked questions such as the Inspire 1 range, distance, max height, altitude, frequency, sensors, transmission, WiFi, gimbal, camera and much more.

The DJI Inspire 1 is very close to the perfect quadcopter. The Inspire 1 allows anyone to create great aerial photography and filming shots. There are a number of cameras which can be fitted to the Inspire 1.

The latest camera is the Zenmuse Z3 which is the first integrated aerial zoom camera optimized for still photography. Being able to detach the gimbal on the Inspire 1 allows this drone to be used for more than just aerial filming.

For example, the Inspire 1 Pro comes with the Zenmuse X5 gimbal and 4k micro four thirds camera. This Zenmuse X5 gimbal can be removed and the new Zenmuse XT thermal imaging sensor can be attached giving the Inspire 1 real flexibility to provide solutions in many different sectors.

Fire Departments use drones to get an overall view of the area where they are battling a blaze whether it is a building or a forest.   They are also using thermal vision cameras to get information on the heat of a fire or the heat from a fire which has just been put out.

Or, how about attaching the latest Parrot Sequoia multispectral sensor for farming allowing the Inspire 1 to capture both visible and invisible images of crops, vegetation and ground cover.

The Inspire 1 is designed with adaptability in mind.
