DRAGANFLY RELEASES NEW PAYLOADS TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY AND DATA COLLECTION QUALITY

Draganfly Inc. has released three new specialized payload offerings, which are intended to expand agricultural research and environmental monitoring using drones.

Draganfly's wholly-owned subsidiary, Draganfly Innovations Inc., has developed these new payload options in collaboration with research experts in agricultural and water resources fields. These new camera packages, which have now been added to Draganfly's existing product line, are intended to increase efficiency and improve the spatial and spectral quality of actionable data collected.

The Corning microHSI hyperspectral sensor is capable of recording up to 155 user-selectable light bands, which allows researchers to narrow their focus to the specific light spectrums they want to target. This sensor is being used across various industries including precision agriculture, environmental monitoring, and oil & gas. Draganfly now offers and supports this sensor package on the Draganflyer Commander UAV platform as well as the DJI M600 Pro.

The first of two dual-sensor packages is the 100MP Phase One Industrial iXM-100 still camera paired with the MicaSense RedEdge-MX multispectral 5-band sensor, which offers simultaneous capture of multispectral and high resolution visual imagery. These two cameras are impressive in their own right, but what makes this payload package even more powerful is the payload control system that allows for geo-referencing and automatic, simultaneous camera shutter and data logging. This dual payload is available now and supported on the DJI M600 Pro platform.

The second of the two dual-sensor packages is the 42MP Sony a7R still camera paired with the MicaSense RedEdge-MX multispectral 5-band sensor. This payload offering, like the above-mentioned dual sensor payload, also offers simultaneous capture of multispectral and high resolution visual imagery, but at a more attractive price point.

"We are excited to offer systems and equipment to researchers and government agencies looking to improve on their current data collection methods. We're confident these payload offerings can add immense value" stated Cory Baker, Production Manager, Draganfly Innovations.

The sensor packages in these new payload offerings have been integrated with the aircraft's autopilot, flight control system, and mission planning software to allow automatic planning, push button flight execution, and data collection driven by the user's resolution and data quality requirements.

These specialized payloads have been developed with agricultural and environmental research organizations in mind. University-led research programs and federal agencies that Draganfly collaborated with include the University of Saskatchewan's Plant Phenotyping and Imaging Research Centre (P2IRC), the University of Saskatchewan's Global Water Futures, and the Government of Canada's Department of Agriculture and Agri-Food.

Excellent write up here

What people want from drones is data, of course, but they also want to know that it is secure,” said Chell. “Our biggest advantage in the North American supply chain, where applicable, is a private autopilot system that ensures data security.”

“As a result of the latest bans on Chinese manufactured drones, going forward I think the U.S. military will only deploy North American manufactured drones,” he continued. “I think in regard to other U.S. government agencies, there will be some patches built to ensure low cost Chinese drones are secure and so there will be some exemptions for Chinese drones for U.S. government and infrastructure work. Those exemptions will revolve around drones that have third-party security attached to them to ensure their data cannot be hacked. I also think that Chinese manufacturers will make strides and offer assurances that on some of their drone systems there will be data security. For mission critical work, however, the default will be to go with a North American manufacturer.”

It is easy to see that this company will be a drone leader in military and defense

Vancouver, British Columbia, Dec. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Draganfly Inc. (CSE: DFLY) (OTC: DFLYF) (FSE: 3U8) (“Draganfly” or the “Company”) subsidiary, Draganfly Innovations, an award-winning, industry-leading manufacturer within the commercial Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (“RPAS”) and the Unmanned Vehicle Systems (“UVS”) space, announced that it has been registered with the Controlled Goods Program of Canada.

“Controlled goods” is a term used to refer to equipment used in Canada’s defense and security industries, including but not limited to military equipment, communications equipment and related pieces of intellectual property. As a result of this registration, Draganfly is authorized to work with and handle ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) controlled goods and technologies. This registration simplifies the regulatory process United States clients face when contracting Draganfly for sensitive projects.

All defense products and components produced at the Draganfly facility are manufactured consistently to meet these requirements.

“Draganfly has been on Canada’s Controlled Goods Program since March 2019. This means that we are authorized to work with and handle ITAR controlled goods and technologies. This ability makes it much easier for US clients doing work for the government and military to contract us on projects.” said Tim Lee, VP of Engineering and the Designated Official for the Controlled Goods Program at Draganfly.

The inclusion of ITAR compliant practices via the Controlled Goods Program is an indicator of Draganfly’s commitment to serving customers with quality and regulatory excellence. This means that the necessary controls are in place to ensure that all controlled data and products are only available to approved personnel. This process assures government and military customers that these materials will not get into the hands of non-authorized persons.

I am in and bought a good position, this company is going to go far. There is a new article about Chinese drones being grounded and draganfly at defense daily

“There’s about $1 billion in revenue right now for strategic commercial work, military and government work that is being done that comprises drone sales or services that now can’t be done by Chinese drone companies,” Cameron Chell, the CEO of Draganfly, wrote in an email. “There are maybe three or four companies that can capture that work, and Draganfly is one of them.”

Great idea to start a topic, I bought a position and plan on buying more. If I do half as good with this as FLT, I will be very happy. It looks obvious that Draganfly will make big inroads into US defense

Thanks Ron, I bought a position and I see the ban of Chinese drones is spreading.

The U.S. Defense Department and Department of Interiors banned Chinese drones, now the Japan Coast guard is eliminating Chinese made drones.

TOKYO -- The Japan Coast Guard plans to stop using and procuring Chinese-made drones in fiscal 2020 due to concerns over information security, Nikkei has learned. It will be the second case in which Chinese products are barred from consideration by Japanese government procurement programs.

Equipment from China's Huawei Technologies is also banned from consideration for government use.

The Japan Coast Guard is currently using a few dozen Chinese-made drones to conduct rescue and surveillance activities. The drones are reasonably priced and perform well but will be replaced by non-Chinese models.

DHS Continues to Warn Private Industry Against Using Foreign-Made Drones

Brian Garrett-Glaser – December 9, 2019

“Government cybersecurity officials continue to warn U.S. companies about the dangers of using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) designed or manufactured abroad, according to a sensitive document distributed to private industry by the FBI’s Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency on November 20… Canadian drone manufacturer Draganfly, which recently held an IPO on the Canadian Stock Exchange (CSE) and added well-connected former U.S. government officials to its board, is also angling to capitalize on a potential DJI ban, though it currently doesn't hold a significant share of the drone market.”
