Smart. Accurate. Reliable.
When performance matters.
THE SAME REMOTE SENSING TECHNIQUES NASA USES TO DETECT WATER ON MARS
Much of the data that growers need to improve their decision-making can be made available with the right spectroscopy tools. The human eye can detect only a fraction of the information about an object that can be measured remotely. With properly calibrated imaging tools, the difference between healthy and stressed plants can be clearly differentiated in bands beyond the visible spectrum.

Our QUANTA™ sensor combines radiometric calibrations with an 8-band multispectral, downwelling light sensor for in-flight irradiance measurement of true plant reflectance data. This allows you to confidently compare data from the same field, across seasons.
PRECISION VITICULTURE
SkySquirrel, in partnership with VineView, makes it easy for you to capture, analyze and act on key imaging data for precise monitoring of vineyards. With our turn-key solution, you can:

1. EASILY DETECT GRAPEVINE LEAFROLL DISEASE

  • Precision: Gather plant-level data with 95% accuracy
  • Proprietary technology solution: The only drone-based platform for diagnosing Grapevine Leafroll Disease
  • Additional detection capabilities: Red blotch, Flavescence Doree, Esca, and Water Stress available in 2017

2. MAKE BETTER CROP HEALTH DECISIONS
At your fingertips: Get insightful, timely information to improve grape quality and yield and reduce costs associated with:
  • Harvest selection
  • Fertilizer optimization
  • Irrigation timing

  • Off-season vineyard planning

Data accuracy: Our technology goes further to take into account vineyard complexities such as row orientation, cover crop and atmospheric conditions.
GRAPEVINE DISEASE MAP WITH NARROWBAND SENSORS AND PROPRIETARY ALGORITHMS
When managing grapevine disease, the best results start with early detection.





GRAPEVINE VIGOR MAP WITH CALIBRATED ENHANCED VEGETATION INDEX (EVI)
Improve productivity by assessing plant health for water and fertilizer optimization while mitigating pest and disease pressures.
WATER STRESS
SkySquirrel is currently working with research partners and clients to validate water stress mapping using multispectral imaging. Please contact us for more details.
PRECISION AGRICULTURE
Because our system offers calibrated NDVI and Calibrated Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI), our drone-based aerial imaging solution is also a very powerful tool for precision agriculture.

SkySquirrel Technologies offers a turn-key solution to researchers and high value crop growers by providing a flying remote sensing platform capable of detecting water- and nutrient stress levels in plants. Equipped with radiometric calibrated multispectral cameras, our unmanned aircraft perform this with higher accuracy and speed than the conventional method of scouting the field on foot with hand scanners or ground sampling systems. Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, or NDVI, can be a valuable indicator for any type of crop and helps improve productivity by assessing plant health for water and fertilizer optimization while mitigating pest and disease pressures.


RESEARCH IN PRECISION AGRICULTURE
Are you looking for an unmanned aircraft to support your agricultural research?

Look no further. With feedback from 50+ field researchers and academics from ten different countries, our engineers have developed a small robotic rotorcraft system especially designed for research purposes. Remote sensing data collected by the drone can be used to measure plant vigor, detect plant stress levels and a host of other applications.

We listened:
- High-precision calibrated NDVI data
- High accuracy GPS position with image data
- 25 minutes of flight time
- In-flight irradiance measurements for true reflectance
- Customizable optical filters for many applications &
