The agriculture industry continually introduces new seed varieties, fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and technology — it is perpetually evolving. With continual advancements to the agriculture landscape, tools used to evaluate crop health vigor and to detect issues in crops must be flexible and develop just as rapidly. Sentera’s latest sensor supports industry crop health needs before they are widely commercialized.
Kris Poulson, Vice President of Agriculture for Sentera explains, “The Quad Sensor’s innovative technology can add incredible value to several agriculture applications. Individuals on the leading edge of development seek technology that is both tailored to an application and intuitive to use. With our Quad Sensor, customers with unique vegetation indices requirements have a solution.”
The filters in all four of the Quad Sensor imagers are completely customizable. Customers work directly with Sentera or an authorized reseller to configure filter and band requirements.
The Sentera Quad Sensor easily integrates with multiple commercial drones including the DJI Inspire 1 and Phantom 3, 3D Robotics Solo, and the Sentera Phoenix fixed-wing platforms.
