Deveron is focused on revenue generating and research driven data collection using drones for the 2016 growing season in Ontario.
"We have recently completed our first revenue generating flight of the 2016 season," commented David MacMillan, VP Corporate Development, "as we focus on building credibility, relationships and growing our footprint in Ontario, it is encouraging to see such excitement from the agricultural community with respect to our service offering. Our first assignment was completed in conjunction with one of Ontario's largest farming cooperatives and we look forward to building this relationship as the premier supplier of drone imagery services for agriculture in the region."
To assist the Company in ramping up for this season, it is has recently ordered additional UAS and multispectral sensors to add to its growing fleet of available drones positioned throughout the province. Deveron continues to develop a fleet of the most technologically advanced drones available for farming and to build an underlying infrastructure to be a leader in the drone imagery market.
Deveron has also hired additional licensed pilots to operate its fleet of drones. The company is taking a proactive approach to its operations and setting a high standard for safety and responsibility with respect to operating UAS. The Company operates under its Special Flight Operations Certificate ("SFOC") from Transport Canada. The SFOC permits Deveron to operate UAS for the purpose of surveying agricultural land in rural areas.
Drones are transforming the way data collection and analysis are conducted on a farm. Deveron uses industry leading hardware, sensor and software technologies to collect actionable crop data for farmers. Images can be used with existing farm GIS software for variable rate fertilizing, seeding, pesticide applications and other prescription management solutions to ultimately help farmers increase yields and reduce costs.
