“Agriculture, in general, has undergone a revolution. Technology has become an indispensable part of doing business for every farmer.”
The increasing adoption rate of technology in agriculture shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. Farming is highly land and labour-intensive. Farmers are driven to use technology to increase efficiency and manage costs. Perhaps the easiest way to understand precision agriculture is to think of it as everything that makes the practice of farming more accurate and controlled when it comes to the growing of crops.
A key component of the farm management approach is the use of information technology and the wide array of resources available. In particular, the use of Drones or UAVs (Unmanned Air Vehicle). This one tool alone is pushing technology to accomplish more for Ag precision – minimising overheads to obtain maximum profit. This particular technology is forcing many to rethink their strategy as they realise the gains that can be made.

What is NDVI?
The normalised difference vegetation index (NDVI) is a simple graphical indicator that can be used to analyse remote sensing measurements, typically, but not necessarily, from a space platform, and assess whether the target being observed contains live green vegetation or not.
What is VARI?
The Visible Atmospherically Resistant Index (VARI). VARI is a measure of “how green” an image is. Images with the VARI algorithm applied make it possible to detect areas of crop stress in a field.
Plant Health Algorithms Enable Growers and Agronomists to Identify Crop Variance
We’re able to measure plant health using drone imagery because healthy plants reflect light differently than unhealthy plants. Plants that are healthier tend to reflect more green light than red light, which is why they look green. Plants also reflect near-infrared light that is invisible to the naked eye, but can be detected with near-infrared sensors.
Plant health algorithms such as NDVI and VARI compare the proportions of light captured across different bands (red, green, blue and sometimes near-infrared) to compute numerical values for each pixel or area of a given drone map. Maps with plant health algorithms are then assigned colours based on those numerical values, which makes it easy to identify the variance between healthy and unhealthy areas.
Digital Marketing Solutions
Have you looked at creating a promo for your business and found it too costly and complicated?
It’s time to impress your client base with affordable marketing solutions from Helix UAV. We can create a fully edited promotional film or you can have the raw footage (it’s yours).
To take your businesses potential to the next level lets show them what you’ve got.
3D imaging of objects and structures that can be interactively manipulated on your web page for your marketing purposes is now possible. You no longer need NASA you need Helix UAV.
Imagine how much it would take to have your own logo on the side of a very large building? Just the expense and the logistics would be prohibitive.
The choice? We can achieve embedding the logo on a chosen building using post production techniques. Gives a whole new dynamic to film/video production and photography.
Logo marketing 
In this example its clear to see how dynamic digital marketing can be a great advertising tool. The logos appear to be “real”, on both moving and static surfaces. One of many post production techniques that can be employed when creating promos for clients.
Post production example of parallax labelling. Here you will see how we can parallax label specific areas within a given footage. This helps to highlight areas or objects of interest to the viewer in a dynamic way. This technique for example could be used to highlight faults when conducting inspections or to highlight product or item information to potential clients, again the uses are endless.
Focal point adjust
This shows how initially the jogger is bobbing up and down. Helix UAV is able to remove this so that the jogger appears to be perfectly aligned with the camera. This technique can be used for example, within scenes with movement such as vehicles or parallax frame shots – the uses are endless.
Generating maps and field images
Efficient data acquisition
Minimal time wastage
