Vineyard drone Flight Services
Hawk Aerial has partnered with VineView Scientific Aerial Imaging to bring the power of drone technology to vineyard management. For years, leading vineyard operators have recognized the value of aerial analytical maps as they make decisions regarding fertilization, irrigation, pruning, pest & disease management and harvest. Customers have realized significant improvements in yields, quality and costs, amounting to many, many times the cost of the data.
We use the vineyard-specific Matrice M100 + Quanta camera, a fully autonomous system designed by VineView and Hawk Aerial. This proven and reliable UAV incorporates a multispectral camera outfitted with filters specifically selected and tested to give the precise information needed to assess vine health and vigor. Our pilots come to your vineyard on your schedule and fly the Aqweo to acquire aerial data. We then process the data and deliver to you a series of analytical maps including the industry leading Calibrated Enhanced Vegetation Index produced by VineView. Leafroll disease maps are also available, as are infrared and RGB orthomosaic maps. Please watch our video to learn about difference between NDVI and calibrated enhanced vegetation index.
