Compact modular protected multipurpose agro-drone with advanced functionality
Agricultural UAV
A compact drone, which is the youngest model in the eXtra line – with advanced functionality. It is notable not only for its small dimensions and weight, which makes it very convenient to store and carry, but also for an exceptionally high payload-to-weight ratio of 1.5:1, which is an outstanding efficiency value in a number of wingless aircraft. Another significant advantage is the ability to work with both liquid and solid working material, which is almost unique in the class of devices weighing less than 30 kg. Taking into account the low catalog price, the Glory Air X16 can be considered an "entrance ticket" to the world of fully functional agricultural workers, where savings do not mean abandoning radars or the possibility of direct control using a controller, which radically increase flight safety.
The design of both the flight part and the load is thought out to the smallest detail: the folding system is maximally simplified, the working tank is fixed extremely low on aluminum supports, which improves balancing and increases the stability of the spatial position in the horizontal plane. The tank itself has a V-shaped shape, and the movement of the material is organized according to the principle of "double slanting flow" (double slanting flow), which ensures a continuous uniform flow regardless of the instantaneous angle of inclination and acceleration of the drone.

To increase the convenience of filling the tank, it is equipped with filling holes on both sides, and the diameter of the holes is 113 mm, so that the funnel is not needed, and nothing will get past. It is important that the components and assemblies are protected from moisture and dust, which is not often found in this price group. The complete charger can charge up to four batteries at the same time so that the workflow remains continuous.
Where are drones used in agriculture?
Soil and field analysis
Drones create accurate 3D maps for soil analysis, which is useful when planning seed planting schemes. After planting, soil analysis using drones provides data for irrigation and nitrogen level monitoring.
Spraying of crops
Drones can scan the ground and spray the required amount of liquid, adjusting the distance from the ground and spraying in real time for uniform coverage. This leads to increased efficiency and a reduction in the amount of chemicals entering the groundwater.
Crop monitoring
With the help of drones, you can predict the exact development of the crop and identify the inefficiency of planting in certain areas, which allows you to better manage yields.
Drones with hyperspectral, multispectral or thermal sensors can detect which parts of the field are dry or need improvement.
Health assessment
By scanning crops using visible and near-infrared light, drone-borne devices can determine which plants reflect different amounts of green and near-infrared light.
Planting seeds
Drone landing systems achieve 75% efficiency and reduce landing costs by up to 85%.
Reduction of herbicide use by 52% in Brazil's soybean fields
In Brazilian soybean fields, drones were brought in to reduce the use of herbicides by 52%. They helped to create maps of herbicide application in weed-clogged areas, providing great assistance to workers. Within a few hours, the level of weed contamination in specific locations was determined.
South Korea sprays 30% of fields with drones, saving 47% of chemicals
Sprayer drones can navigate very hard-to-reach places, such as steep tea fields at high altitude.

Sprayer drones save workers from having to move around the field using knapsack sprayers, which can be dangerous for their health.

The spray drones provide a very fine spray that can be targeted at specific areas, which saves the use of chemicals in South Korea by 47%.
In the USA, 400,000 trees are planted a day with the help of drones
One of the new and less common uses of drones in agriculture is sowing seeds. In the USA, drones are used in the forestry industry, they can perform work in hard-to-reach areas without exposing workers to danger. Planting can be done more efficiently with the help of a team of two operators and ten drones capable of planting 400,000 trees a day.
The UK is switching to drones to collect fruit in the conditions of COVID-19
In 2021, when the world is facing a global health crisis, the UK is increasingly faced with the problem of finding workers to harvest fruits and vegetables. In this regard, the British government is starting to use drones for harvesting.

Although UAC's fruit picking technology is still in the early stages of development, many companies are already testing drones that can pick hard fruits such as apples, apricots, peaches and pears.
