DJI launches P4 multispectral for crop health analysis

By on 2 October, 2019

 DJI targets the precision agriculture market with its new P4 multispectral.

The latest iteration of DJI’s ever-expanding Phantom 4 lineup is the P4 multispectral — positioned as a turnkey solution for crop health analysis.

The new drone comes equipped with an integrated sensor unit featuring an RGB camera, and multispectral camera array with 5 cameras covering Blue, Green, Red, Red Edge, and Near Infrared bands at 2Megapixel, stabilised by DJI’s refined 3-axis gimbal technology.

The system also features a spectral sunlight sensor, mounted on the top of the aircraft’s fuselage, which DJI says maximises accuracy and accounts for data collected at different times of day.

“P4 Multispectral has the promise to transform the agriculture and land management industries by collecting precise plant-level data without having to send personnel into the field for manual surveys,” said Jan Gasparic, Director of Strategic Partnerships at DJI.

“By combining multispectral imaging into a trusted, efficient and affordable tool, DJI is making this transformative technology more accessible to professionals around the world who are pioneering the adoption of drones in their industries.”

The new drone’s data inputs integrate into DJI’s Ground Station Pro flight planning software, which impressively features a realtime Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) view from its multispectral sensors.

DJI says the new drone will be available in October, with an indicated price point of $6,499 USD ($9,678 AUD).
