Fixed-wing drone company SenseFly has revealed new partnerships with Trimble and Microsoft to demonstrate the capability of its drones for precision agriculture.
The partnership will see SenseFly working with Trimble to distribute its drones through the Trimble Agriculture Network, giving agriculture professionals access to the SenseFly suite of products.
SenseFly will also partner with Microsoft Azure FarmBeats to make use of its drones alongside Microsoft’s internet of things sensors that collect data to sustainably increase global food production by 70% by 2050.
SenseFly is currently a market leader in the fixed-wing drone industry, holding 45% of the market.
Gilles Labossiere, CEO of SenseFly, said: “Trimble and Microsoft are major players in the agriculture sector, and these relationships are a testament to senseFly’s drones operating at the high standards required by large organisations to deliver the results they need.
“This includes being able to offer a range of cameras to meet project-specific requirements, absolute accuracy down to 3cm and unparalleled flight times that enable coverage of up to 500 ha (1,235 ac) in a single flight.”
