Study considers Ag-Cormorant for crop spraying

27th March 2019 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ADAMA has partnered with Tactical Robotics to carry out a joint study of the use of high-payload UAS for aerial crop spraying, the company announced on 25 March.

Tactical Robotics has developed the Cormorant, a multi-role, compact, high payload, unmanned VTOL aircraft able to carry a payload of more than 500kg (up to 764kg including fuel). The truck-transportable UAS platform is capable of performing multiple tasks including logistics and cargo services, fire-fighting and aerial spraying.

As part of the collaboration, ADAMA and Tactical Robotics will work together to develop the Ag-Cormorant, an innovative solution for aerial spraying. The Ag-Cormorant's ability to adjust flight height and speed according to the mission, in combination with advanced aerodynamics enables better canopy penetration, drift reduction and variable rate application capabilities.

Dani Harari, SVP strategy and resources, ADAMA, said: 'We are excited to partner with Tactical Robotics to

develop new and innovative solutions for aerial spraying. We believe that the Ag-Cormorant represents a new and improved method for aerial application and see the future potential of leveraging ADAMA's crop protection portfolio in combination with its unique capabilities. We aim to continue providing these and other valuable services and products to enable farmers to optimise yields and help them grow.'
