AgEagle aircraft will now include the Botlink drone operations platform. The move will bring Botlink’s real-time safety and data technology to AgEagle’s farm-focused flying wing aircraft.
Botlink connects drones to the internet so imagery can be captured, processed and delivered in real time without removing memory cards or manually downloading and uploading files. The platform also provides automated flight control and real-time situational awareness features.
The combination of AgEagle and Botlink provides simple access to actionable data. Farmers and agronomists can use normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data and high-resolution photography gathered with an AgEagle airframe to scout fields, assess crop damage and create prescription maps for variable-rate fertilizer, fungicide and herbicide applications.
Botlink is a cloud-based operations platform that links drones to industry in real time. The platform allows users to capture, process and automatically deliver aerial imagery anywhere, including into existing business software. Botlink gives teams the ability to make time-sensitive and collaborative decisions, even while a drone is still airborne. Botlink also provides automated drone control and safety features such as airspace alerts, manned aircraft avoidance and weather advisories, allowing operators to remain safe and compliant with complex flight regulations.
