Draganfly Commander Ag-Pro drone

Draganfly’s Commander drones have been selected by the US Department of Agriculture for use in phenotyping and other related data collection and analysis tasks. The selection follows the US Department of Commerce and the Bureau of Industry and Security’s addition of several foreign drone manufacturers to an entity list with restricted access to key enabling US technologies. Draganfly believes that its North American manufacturing and security sets a benchmark for governmental and private organizations.

The Draganfly Commander Ag-Pro model is a turnkey UAV package providing extended flight times, high level of data resolutions and accuracy and the utmost data security. The platform supports evidence-based crop, health, planning and spatial data collection, providing valuable data that can then be used to influence agricultural policies and decisions.

Cameron Chell, CEO of Draganfly, commented: “The growing use of UAVs within the US Department of Agriculture for diverse applications are fueling the need for our drones. Draganfly is incredibly honored to be working with the Department of Agriculture and looking forward to serving their department on future projects.”
