Sentera has given its 2019 PHX Fixed-Wing Drone a major update in reaction to customer feature requests.
It has now been equipped with a new, longer-range high-speed datalink, an omnidirectional antenna system, and an upgraded, higher-capacity battery.
Additionally, when in-flight, the PHX supplies live HD video, still images and live analytics, including stand counts, weed locations, and plant health, using the newest variants of the Sentera Double 4K sensor payload.
Todd Colten, chief aerospace engineer at Sentera commented: “We listened, and for 2019, Sentera is delivering the updates that most benefit our PHX users. Our focus is on user productivity, cost-per-acre, and operational simplicity.”
“PHX is already known as a phenomenally efficient, rugged platform. These changes widen the gap, with extended range, endurance, and faster time-to-launch,” he continued.
Adding: “We understand that our customers’ success depends on a streamlined process that allows them to go from setup to flight to insights in the most efficient and reliable way possible. The 2019 PHX is really unmatched; cover large areas faster and with greater payload flexibility, which translates into more options for analytics-based insights.”
The complete Ag scouting systems start at £6,416 ($8,499).
