AgroFly SpUAV 1.2 entering production in Q1 2018!

AgroFly developed – and patented – the first certified (in Switzerland, other countries pending) and assessed high-precision agricultural spraying UAV platform. Bringing the right amount of product at the right place on the crops doesn’t only protect plants efficiently but also in an eco-friendly manner. AgroFly’s target is to revolutionize plant protection treatments by bringing the right product, at the right time, at the right place!

AgroFly is a Switzerland-based company who developed the first crop-spraying UAV system certified by the national authorities (civil aviation, agricultural, public health & environmental authorities).

Scientific assessments were conducted together with Agroscope, the Swiss institute for agricultural research (noise, application homogeneity, nozzles configuration), University of Geisenheim (ISO 22866 drift assessments) and Syngenta Global – Crop protection / Application Technology department (quality deposit, drifts). Mr. Didier Ançay, our in-house agronomist with international experience, conducts R&D on the spraying parts while Pr. Dominique Genoud leads the Technical department.

Trials and assessments were made on:

vineyards

colza

gardening (asparagus, celery, etc.)

greenhouse shading

We’re now fine-tuning the final production model which will be delivered as following:

Standard AgroFly SpUAV 1.2 including:

SpUAV 1.2 frame (hexacopter with motors, ESCs & propellers)

Agricultural Flight Controller

Transparent tank with level sensor

AgroFly patented spraying ramp

Set of nozzles adapted to the crops

Pesticide pump (5L/min – 8 bar)

Futaba T16SZ radio-control system

2 x AgroFly PowerRack

1 x charging station

SpUAV drone port (to avoid spills and facilitate environmental-friendly refill operations and field deployments / mandatory in Switzerland, meets national environmental standards)

All our SpUAV have a specific S/N, come with a warranty and a dedicated online maintenance and status control platform. Paperwork (agronomical assessments and complete technical files + agricultural calculation tools) are also included + flight & maintenance training at our location. We can also move to customers location to provide the training.

Options to the Standard system are:

Microwave radar system (ground following)

Simple Ground Station -> needed on more complex and uneven plots
