Thanks! We will be empowering local entrepreneurs within the farming community with our drones. These entrepreneurs will be trained on how to operate and maintain these drones.

The goal here is to enable the entrepreneurs to service the local farmers whilst also earning a decent income. We are also looking into setting up a facilitating fund that will enable these local entrepreneurs lease our drones on a hire to purchase basis.

Hi Oz,

The core technical specification for the drone is primarily based on the IRIS drone by 3DR.

For the mission planning we use Mission Planner by Drone Code.

As for the NDVI cameras we are partnering with Usense.

Kind regards,
Dan
