Multi-Layered Sensing with sUAS in Agriculture

The use of small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) in agriculture is viewed as one of the next opportunities in broad acre crop production.  This presentation will focus on how we might transition the layered sensing approach used by the U.S. military to generate actionable information to guide corn and soybean crop care.  Topic will include the fixed wing coverage of large acres, directed scouting using multi-rotor drones, options for within canopy sensing and the use of artificial intelligence for interpreting image and time series data.
