DRONES FOR AGRICULTURE

Defining problems, then providing decision-making systems, are the keys to integrated farm management. This enables farmers to optimize their returns on investment and conserve natural resources.

Novadrone focuses on providing farmers with professional tools that improve production, reduce cost and risk, and enable them to focus on what they do best: running their businesses.

The Nomad maximizes area coverage whilst providing superior results each time you fly. It has a high capacity payload which can be integrated with any sensor(s) you need, be it RGB, multispectral, infrared or thermal.

The acquisition of high-precision aerial imagery in multi-spectral bands via UAV technology is the 21st Century way to optimize cultivation techniques, maximize resources, reduce costs, increase production and improve quality.
