Agrolytic: Cloud processing service for UAV agriculture data

Our team at Agrolytic spent the 2014 growing season in the fields, working with growers, and flying UAVs with different sensors. Our single goal was to create a practical, online service that empowers growers to benefit from the latest in sensor and big data processing technologies, but without the technical complexity of data processing and infrastructure.

We are pleased to offer free 2015 beta accounts on our data processing platform for UAV operators and growers in order to perform extended trials, work closely with the UAV and agriculture community to create new and useful insights, and expand our features.  Our system is uniquely designed as a platform for scientists to easily develop new environmental analyses on top of a variety of input data types, so if you're flying a sensor we don't support or need an analysis our system doesn't yet offer, simply let us know, and we'll work quickly to support it.

Our team at Agrolytic combines expertise in scientific environmental modeling and remote sensing with expertise developing large-scale, commercial-grade cloud data processing solutions.

Thermal imaging system for drones

I would like to introduce a thermal imaging system for drones and UAV systems made by european company Workswell s.r.o.

Basic parameters

Workswell Thermal Vision Pro is high-end and unique wireless thermal imaging solution with two cameras and storage for unmanned aerial vehicles, quadrocopters or drones. This lightweight system offers a maximum resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and a temperature sensitivity of 0.05 °C which ranks to the best on the market. You can record continuous video, take images and save data to storage for later analysis.

More information is avaible on our website: http://www.drone-thermal-camera.com/

Some advantages of system

see in a day or night, even in complete darkness radimetrics data recording see through the fog, thick smoke and partly through the vegetation all the data are sent wirelessly to the operator’s controller one touch system for saving all images at the same time

The aim of the whole system is the simple transfer, storage and processing of radiometric (temperature) data directly from a UAV (drone) and displaying the data on the screen of the remote control in real time. The system offers three picture modes that can be set by the operator using the keyboard prior to take off. During the flight, the operator can switch between the modes using the UAV remote control.
