Sensor Options

The Storm system uses DJI components at its heart, but it is a custom design and build. This gives it a high level of flexibility, with external power output, flight controller connection and custom mounting plates that can be designed to fit various payloads and sensors.

The front plate and DJI camera mount fits any standard DJI camera, from the X3 and Z3, through to the multiple lens X5, XT thermal camera and Z30 30x optical zooms camera.

The bottom plate can fit a variety of third party cameras (up to 800g), with or without vibration isolation. Examples include the Parrot Sequoia, Micasense RedEdge and Slantrange 3p multispectral camera systems, as well as various thermal cameras and even full hyperspectral camera systems.

Finally a flexible top mounting system allows for incoming light sensors (a must for properly calibrated imagery), external GPS and RTK/PPK units to be installed.

Hardware

DJI X5 Camera

Fit 16Mp, 4k video, with multiple lens options from 12mm to 45mm (24 to 90mm FF equivalent). £1200

Slantrange 3p Multispectral

High end multispectral camera, with on-board data processing. £3200

Zenmuse XT Thermal Imaging Camera

Measuring IR radiation, this camera can give accurate temperature readings from the air. Applications include irrigation monitoring, animal counting/health checks and solar panel inspections. £enquire

RTK GPS system

A normal GPS system provides accuracy to about 1m either way which is enough for most agri mapping scenarios. When more accuracy is required for applications such as mapping margins, tramlines or measuring crop height, the RTK upgrade will provide position accuracy to within 5cm. £3000

Super Power Pack

Provides three battery pairs and a six battery parallel multi charger in a tough flight case. This system will charge three battery pairs at once in about 20mins, keeping you flying all day. £1200

Certification

Certification

CAA Permission for Commercial Operations (PFCO) 2 day course, operations manual and flight exam. Available at our training base or locations across the UK. £950 per person

Consulting

For any special cases such as beyond line of sight operations or flying within urban areas we provide a consulting service to help you obtain an Operational Safety Case (OSC) from the CAA. £per project
