The double sensors offer various combinations of RGB, NDVI, NDRE, and a filtered 5-band version at a very good 12MP resolution.
There is also a lower resolution quad-band sensor option, aimed at researchers/specific use cases where the most flexibility/custom bands are needed for trials and R&D purposes.
These Sentera sensors are ideal for farm businesses, agronomists and agri companies that operate Inspire or Matrice series drones looking for a sensor that will allow them to map fields for fast scouting and problem detection, nutrient insights, weed pressure and terrain.
True NDVI allows these sensors to see beyond the visual spectrum and give you real, useful insights into crop health and potential issues earlier than you might otherwise spot them. Or NDRE will give you a powerful tool to help with vari rate Nitrogen application.
These gimballed sensors will fit the Inspire and Matrice series drones from DJI, they will also fit most N3 and A3 based custom drones with the standard DJI X3 type camera mount.
The sensor data can be processed in many programs, including Dronedeploy, Pix4D and Senteras own Field Agent, which is included in the cost. Note that the quad and 5 band versions are designed to be processed with Pix4D, not Field Agent.
What Else Do I Need:
You’ll need an Inspire, Matrice, or custom DJI drone, if you don’t own one, ask us about your options. Software to control the drone and process the imagery is included.
If you don’t have much experience with using drone systems for mapping on the farm, we highly recommend training. You can add a days training with us in the options, or ask about bespoke courses for more people and in more detail.
