DJI recently announced the Matrice 100, an extremely flexible flight platform with all the standard technology built in, including the flight controller, propulsion system, GPS, Lightbridge HD video link, a dedicated remote controller, and a rechargeable battery. This system automatically manages the most complex tasks required for flight. It is also designed to be extremely flexible.
What this means is we can use it for the basis of a system that will support multiple cameras, for multi-spectral imaging, whilst also being able to get up to 40mins flying time – twice that of our current systems!
We’re exited to start experimenting with these systems so that we can begin using them in the field and make them available to farmers out there to get the data they need with ever increasing accuracy and speed.
