Toronto, Ontario-based Deveron Resources Ltd. says it has commenced commercial unmanned aircraft system (UAS) operations for the 2016 agricultural season in Ontario.
In addition, the company says it recently ordered additional UAS and multispectral sensors to add to its fleet of available drones throughout the province.
Deveron has also hired additional licensed pilots to fly the drones. Under its Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) from Transport Canada, the company operates UAS for the purpose of surveying agricultural land in rural areas.
David MacMillan, vice president of corporate development, says, the company’s “first assignment was completed in conjunction with one of Ontario’s largest farming cooperatives.”
Deveron’s new business, Deveron UAS, is targeted at farmers, agricultural retailers and independent agronomists.
