The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted Davion a Section 333 exemption that permits our company to operate a drone (UAS) service for precision agricultural as well as utility/cell phone tower/bridge inspection services and many other projects in the states of
- and Texas.
Our fleet of drones will make photographic measurements of farm fields, which will give the farmer an indication of a problem areas in the crops.
The aim of Davion is to save farmers time (as well as insurance companies) of walking through their fields.
The drone also can carry sensors that pick up information invisible to the naked eye, which gives an indication that a field may be deficient in water, fertilizer, in need of a herbicide/insecticide, or other agriculture applications.
Davion will be utilizing quad-copter style drones and is awaiting approval for their fixed wing style UAV fleet as well as a regular fixed wing fleet.
We are excited to be one of the new drone companies in the United States, and one of only a handful of companies in the south to be able to legally offer this service to our customers.
Davion gives the farmer the ability to see how his crop is doing in almost real-time from the air and being able to pin-point certain areas that need an immediate response, which will make a dramatic difference in their potential yield at harvest time as well as save on fertilizer cost.
