Have you ever wonder how to easily launch and recover a drone from a confined space, map a relatively large area, obtain high res RGB and NIR imagery from the same flight, and process the imagery automatically and quickly, at half the cost of other solutions out there?
Here is a quickly shot video of the Aeromapper Talon and its great capabilities for confined areas. Thanks to its impressive climb rate and parachute landing, which has a 100% success rate and the most forgiving packing method. Unless other UAVs with complex parachute deployment systems that depends on “parachute ejection” methods and sometimes dual chutes, the Aeromapper Talon uses gravity for its deployment which rarely fails J
It has an endurance of 80 mins, covering 6 km2 at 3 cm/pixel at 125 m agl.
The Aeromapper Talon is the ultimate agricultural tool. It is ready to host the new Multiespectral camera from Parrot, the Sequoia which will be available from April 2016.
The Sequoia is a multispectral camera specifically designed for agriculture, with great features at approximately half the price of similar products offered. The Sequoia captures calibrated wavelength, Green, Red, Red-Edge and Near Infrared at 1.2 MP and RGB imagery at 16 MP.
The Aeromapper Talon also has the unique ability to carry both the Sequoia and its standard 24 Mp RGB camera simultaneously, offering very high resolution images plus vegetation data.
The Sequoia will be offered as an optional addition to the Aeromapper Talon very soon.
More information on the Parrot Sequoia is available here.
For even tighter budgets we also offer a converted 24Mp Sony camera to NIR, available as a "swap and fly" setup.
The Aeromapper Talon can also be optionally purchased bundled with the Pix4DMapper Professional Aeromao Edition, that enables an inexperienced user to process thousands of images and quickly obtain survey-grade accurate orthomosaics, DSMs and Point clouds in a few clicks, for two separate computers and fully automatically.
Agisoft Photoscan Pro is also available, offering two different turnkey solutions for every budget.
