Global UAV Technologies has announced it recently completed a 4G drone technology proof concept mission with Jöst Vineyards and VineView.
Global UAV provided the 4G enabled Procyon 800E helicopter drone platform and specialised imaging payload, pilots and engineering support for the project.
The mission demonstrated a real world application of cutting-edge drone technology for the “Digital Vineyard of the Future” project and provided valuable quantitative scientific data to the vineyard.
Global UAV flew a 4G enabled multi-spectral imaging survey over Jöst Vineyards in Nova Scotia with a Procyon 800E helicopter, the company’s proprietary drone.
A mission aimed to demonstrate drone-enabled real-time data transfer capabilities over the 4G cellular network.
Global UAV is hoping that after the successful completion of the project it has established an additional business opportunity vertical it can access by providing high value crop surveys.
Michael Burns, CEO at Global UAV, said: “This is a pivotal opportunity for Global UAV and emphasises the broad exposure to major telecom partners that our innovation and 4G technology development efforts have landed.
He added: “We are excited to reveal the new technology our Company brings to the viticulture and agriculture industry. Collaboration with VineView, Jöst Vineyards and the major telecom partner confirms Global UAV’s emergence as an industry leading drone technology company with wide technology applications across many industry verticals.”
