Sentera's new Omni quadcopter and 4K sensor package ideal for ag use


US drone company Sentera has released a quad rotor unmanned aerial vehicle designed to fit its Double 4K sensor.

The Omni creates an easy-to-use UAV package for a range of industries including agriculture.

Sentera says an Omni and Double 4K sensor package will simultaneously capture macro and micro data at almost any angle.

Each standard configuration comes ready to use with two batteries, and a durable hard-sided case.

The inspection Double 4K sensor features dual zoom lenses while the agriculture Double 4K sensor simultaneously captures high-resolution color and near-infrared (NIR) data.

Sentera’s Greg Emerick said the lightweight Omni with Double 4K sensor on an upward-looking gimbal provided an “unprecedented field of view while inspecting difficult-to-reach areas.

Weighing 3.6 kilograms, the easy-to-fly Omni is compatible with a variety sensors – carrying each for up to 25 minutes of flight.

Payload compatibility includes Sentera Double 4K, DJI Zenmuse X3, Z3, XT, and new Z30 sensors.

“The data created when using this package is superior to anything else available today,” Mr Emerick said.

“The little-to-no vibration construction of the Omni, plus the Double 4K sensor ensures distortion-free imagery is collected, which translates into users easily stitching images together with any standard stitching tool.

“They will never need to worry about stitching failure due to data distortion,” he said.

The Sentera Double 4K sensor features leading-edge data-processing technology, combined with a vibration-muting gimbal.

The dual zoom levels allow users to review a wide-angle field of view (FOV) and audit a structure, then instantly see 12 megapixel of detail with the narrow-angle lens.

For agriculture applications, operators simultaneously capture high-resolution color, NIR, and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data – providing growers with precise crop-health imagery.
