This product is either a replacement Q-Pod if your already have a QuestUAV Agri system, or it is an addition to your current QuestUAV Q-Pod system that you are already operating, such as the Surveyor package.
The Agri Q-Pod houses our Twin NDVI sensor in a roll-axis gimbal. This is deeply protected in the EPP and ABS structure of the Q-Pod. The pod includes a rugged “trapdoor” system that protects the cameras on landing.
The product also comes with a static gimbal that acts as a replacement camera housing in the event of damage and also assists with capturing better verticals during the image to post processing phase.
Batteries are not included.
This item cannot be purchased unless it is to be part of a current Q-Pod system issues by QuestUAV or a QuestUAV reseller. Export restrictions may apply.
Our Agri Pod contains a set of twin 10.1 megapixel cameras with wide angle lenses. One of these cameras are configured as a visible (RGB) sensor and the other is configured as a near infrared (NIR) sensor. These sensors are used to capture high definition images of the survey area. When the mission has finished all images and their corresponding coordinates are inputted into our modeling software where Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data can be generated.
Out the box our Agri Pod comes with a non-gimballed robust sensor mount which is ideal for capturing high definition imagery while maintaining lifelong durability and protection to the sensors. However this pod can be upgraded to include our custom built QuestTwinGimbal that ensures all imagery is stabilised by using a highly accurate counteracting gyro stabilisation system. This provides the user with a range of options for data capture in varying weather/operating conditions. This will ensure that the data captured is best optimised for post processing using the our recommended software.
The Agri pod can also be provided with a parachute landing option that can make the general operation of the UAV considerably simpler for inexperienced users, or for landing in small spaces. The parachute is deployed through a switch on the pilot’s transmitter, giving the pilot control over exact time of deployment - a key factor in any successful UAV parachute deployment systems. The parachute can also be deployed as a safety function should the pilot consider that the UAV or the flight is in danger.
