How to collect multispectral imagery with VTOL drones in the most challenging conditions

Drones have become a key innovation in today’s industry, saving time and greatly reducing risks. Agricultural companies, service providers and researchers use multispectral imagery captured by drones to assess and monitor crops, organise irrigation, and to perform soil and field analysis. However sometimes limitations of fixed wing and multirotor drones do not allow the full potential of drone technology to be realized.

In this webinar, Yi Hao Ng from Wingtra and Robert Parker from MicaSense will talk about a next generation vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone technology and how it helps professionals collect the high quality multispectral imagery over the most complicated terrains. They will introduce the WingtraOne drone and RedEdge-M multispectral camera bundle and discuss its features and benefits.
