Energy, Infrastructure & Transportation

With thousands of miles of power lines bringing electricity to millions, utility companies can be certain of one thing—the risk of power outages. Water and energy companies can be certain of the vigilance required to keep their canals and pipelines flowing. Railroad companies must ensure that long stretches of tracks are safe and well maintained. But their remoteness and harsh environment can make it difficult to gain real-time situational awareness. Not anymore. Today, AeroVironment's drones deliver advanced capabilities, including long flight, pre-programmed operation and new nano technology for inspecting confined spaces, to empower accurate decision making so energy, infrastructure and transportation companies can proceed with certainty—near or far, day or night, on land or at sea.

Precision Agriculture

To grow healthier crops and increase yields, farmers must grow more certain. They must be certain their crops are getting the right amount of water, and that crops are free of insects and disease. Producers must understand plant health to calculate costs and yields. In the past, intelligence of that kind was difficult to obtain. Not anymore. Today, AeroVironment's drones, equipped with optical and multispectral sensors linked to cloud-based data processing, are poised to become as vitally important as any equipment on the farm. With their sophisticated eyes-in-the-sky and extensive monitoring capabilities, farmers can grow with precision and proceed with certainty.

Applications

Identify Irrigation
Inefficiencies

Identify ground topography issues before planting to ensure better water and nutrition delivery throughout the growing season.

Calculate Harvest
Stockpile

Automatically measure the volume of any stockpile quickly and more accurately.

Inspect Crops for
Stress

Identify and quantify plant stress areas that require immediate attention and be able to take corrective action to improve plant health and vigor.

Analyze Plant Count
and Gaps

Quickly and accurately gather important plant count and gap information that can be valuable in estimating operational costs and yields.



Start viewing yield from a new perspective  

  • Start seeing the whole picture of your field – from 400 feet up.
  • With unmatched aerial imagery and actionable field data, the answers you need are now available at your fingertips.


Cover all your acres, in a single flight

  • Quantix is the first commercial drone in agriculture that combines the advantages of a vertical take-off with the energy efficiency and range of horizontal flight.
  • Scout more than 400 acres in 45 minutes.

    Built to Last

    Quantix was developed for on-farm reliability and features a durable, lightweight airframe with a one-meter wingspan and carbon fiber spar reinforcement.




Actionable insights; not information overload

Quantix integrates seamlessly with AV DSS™ using advanced research to process high-resolution maps and images of your fields.

With AeroVironment DSS you can:

  • Access stored maps
  • Pinpoint issues in specific fields
  • Detect subtle variations of crop health
  • Compare changes over time to make better decisions
  • Compare RGB of crops to NDVI to view what you can’t see with the human eye


Get the job done right, the first time

Unlike many other agriculture drones Quantix comes with dual built-in 18 megapixel cameras to capture both R,G,B color images down to 1”/pixel and multispectral Normalized Difference Vegetative Index (NDVI) with high-resolution down to 2cm/pixel. No need to swap cameras and sensors or make extra flights. Quantix incorporates a self-calibrating solar sensor that takes the ambient light to calibrate the multispectral sensor. 

  • NDVI shows variations in crop health
  • With elevation data you can monitor erosion, water management and irrigation
