We’re delighted to announce the arrival of the latest addition to the KOREC UAS portfolio, senseFly’s fixed wing eBee SQ. The eBee SQ been has built around Parrot’s ground-breaking multispectral Sequoia camera and can cover up to 10 times more ground than small quadcopter drones.
Perfect for crop consultants, growers and researchers, it builds on the success of the popular eBee platform which has recorded more than 300,000 successful customer flights to date over seven continents.
About the Sequoia camera
The arrival of the eBee SQ provides Parrot’s Sequoia camera with its very own drone. This fully-integrated and highly precise multispectral sensor captures data across four non-visible bands, plus visible RGB imagery1—in just one flight.
- Highly precise
- 4 multispectral bands
- + RGB data
- In 1 flight
Once the drone’s images have been processed using a solution such as Pix4Dmapper Ag/Pro software or cloud-only solutions such as MicaSense ATLAS and AIRINOV’s, the Sequoia’s broad spectral data enables numerous vegetation indices to be computed including NDVI, NDRE, MCARI and CCCI. The resulting index maps can then be employed to assess factors such as a plant’s chlorophyll levels, a key indicator of crop health.
The eBee SQ can fly for up to 55 minutes on a single battery charge. This performance enables it to cover up to 500 acres in a single flight at 400 feet above ground level.
The eBee SQ’s supplied planning and control software, called eMotion Ag, is compatible with Farm Management Information Systems (FMIS) and ag machinery.
Available from KOREC now.
