DJI has just announced the latest addition to their growing suite of enterprise drones, the Phantom 4 Multispectral which aims to make precision agriculture accessible to farmers around the world. The P4M will allow farmers to rapidly visualise data which is invisible using standard RGB cameras and make informed mid-season decisions to improve crop yield.
Based on the proven Phantom 4 platform
Fully integrated 6 band sensor (one RGB camera and a five narrow band sensors – including red edge and near infrared)
Top mounted sunlight sensor to capture ambient sunlight, which is used to calibrate with multispectral sensor for more accurate results.
DJI Ground Station Pro flight planning app allows pilots to switch between real-time views of the drone’s RGB video camera and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) output for immediate insights while in the field
RTK positioning module and TimeSync system support real-time, accurate positioning data for each image, optimizing photogrammetric results and providing centimeter-level accurate measurements
Up to 27 minutes fight time
Available from October through authorised DJI Enterprise dealers for $6,499 USD or $9,100 USD with the D-RTK 2 Mobile Base Station.
