(unmanned aerial and ground vehicles)

Our operations are well-established within the commercial agricultural and mining sector. In addition to the traditional aerial application and survey-related services, our teams have played a pivotal role in assisting environmental specialist projects to develop aerial seeding, vegetation control, and monitoring strategies.

All our aerial services and compliance, as depicted or advertised, are provided by an ASL- and SACAA-registered remote operators certificate (ROC) holder, as part of a formal aerial service agreement (ASL number: G1240D) with DC Geomatics (Pty) Ltd (ROC No. CAA/G1240D). Through this agreement, our teams are accredited by the Flight Safety Foundation to be in compliance with the basic aviation risk standard.


With our extensive fleet, our teams can provide the following aerial services (these services are continuously evolving with the development of technology, systems, and industry knowledge):

  • Fertiliser application
  • Herbicide application
  • Pesticide application
  • Seeding
  • Broad application of large areas (e.g. crop spraying)
  • Spot application (e.g. alien and invasive plant management)
  • Linear application (e.g. boundary fences, road verges)
  • Vegetation health analysis
  • Aerial application strategy determination
  • Vegetation density estimation
  • Biomass determination
  • Irrigation/soil moisture patterns
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Trial/plot management and measurements
  • Landscape analysis and surveying (e.g. stormwater management)
  • DJI Agras T30 with RTK 2 base station
  • DJI Mavic 3T Enterprises – thermal
  • DJI Mavic 3E Enterprises – multi-spec
  • DJI P4 Multispectral
  • DJI Mavic Pro
  • R150 Rover Spray (unmanned ground vehicle)
