WE MAP, SCAN, and  TAKE PICTURES FROM ABOVE

Using an FAA Part 107 Licensed Remote Pilot, we scan your fields, construction site, homestead, or business from up to 400 feet above.  This can be done as a simple series of photographs or a complex, geo-referenced orthomosaic map.  It can also use a standard RGB camera or specialized multispectral (near infrared, blue, green, red, red edge) as well as thermal and radiometric thermal. 

The maps can be 2D or 3D and can have complex computer algorithms applies to them  to provide you a potential wealth of information such as crop health, field elevations, volumetrics, plant counts, prescrition maps, and crop scouting.

WHO WE ARE

Tom Taconet

I became FAA licensed the first day that Part 107 was offered and have been flying commercially since then.  I focused on precision agriculture as my primary mission because I have farmers in my family and wanted to help them improve their bottom line and hopefully make the hard work they do every day just a little easier.  I want to do the same for all farmers. More recently, I became involved in the sustainable agriculture community and am focusing on bringing technology to small farm farmers.  I am looking for ways to automate mundane tasks to allow them to focus on maximizing the potential of their useable property.

At the very beginning of 2023, I reached an important milestone by completing all requirements to obtain my FAA Part 137 aerial chemical application operating certificate.  This two year journey now allows me to apply agricultural chemicals as an important service offering to smaller farms.

I also found the use of drones to be a fascinating opportunity in many industries and want to help people in my community leverage this amazing, growing technology.  My very first mission was inspecting my roof and gutters on my own home and doing this without having to get on a ladder made my wife very happy!
