RPAS into Precision Agriculture

  • QLD & NSW
  • Last Update: 03/2019

Course Description

This course is the first step for those wishing to use Drones/RPAS/UAV’s for Precision Agriculture, Farming and Crop Management.

Drones have a unique advantage in being able to provide both live and post processed data from a range of sensors, boasting an impressive productivity boost, the latest technology and software are incorporated into this innovative workflow.

This course will cover the theory behind NDVI, how sensors like RGB, NIR and IR work to provide vital data on crop health, moving on to how acquiring data sets through automated missions on different RPA platforms, and post processing software assess plant conditions, finishing with an automated, efficient and intelligent Agricultural UAV Type training, for precision spraying over the previously assessed crops/fields.

The breakdown:

  • Theory
  • Practical- 2Hrs of flight training
  • Field tests

Why this specialisation?

The precision agriculture specialization is the Industry’s first & only program to equip you with all the licences, certifications & training available to incorporate a consistent workflow into the farming process.


After completion of this course you can:

  • 3D map crops for scouting
  • Process and analyse data sets obtained with multi-spectral sensors
  • Assess crop health
  • Operate high precision spraying RPA

What are the outcomes?

  • Airinov first+ software training
  • Certificate of course completion
