Sentera LLC has announced the availability of its normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) single sensor for the DJI Phantom 4 unmanned aircraft system (UAS).
With the Sentera single sensor, users can capture visual-band, near-infrared and NDVI data simultaneously in a single flight.
The sensor features a high-sensitivity global shutter imager and low-distortion optics for clear aerial data. It also integrates with Sentera’s AgVault software, which allows growers to leverage crop-health imagery at the field’s edge.
Existing Phantom 4 UAS can be sent directly to Sentera or a Sentera-authorized reseller for modification. Alternatively, growers wishing to obtain a new Phantom 4 drone with NDVI capabilities may purchase an integrated system directly through Sentera or its resellers.
“NDVI data is reliably assisting our customers in identifying plants under stress,” says Kris Poulson, vice president of agriculture for Sentera. “By combining our high-precision NDVI sensor with the easy-to-use DJI Phantom 4 drone, users can reliably collect precise data and make better-informed decisions while in the field.”
