USDA acquires Aeromapper Talon For Testing Of Mapping And Precision Agriculture

The Ungulate Disease and Damage research project (USDA APHIS division) have selected the Aeromapper Talon for their research on surveying and mapping agricultural areas that have been damaged by wildlife. Among the different payloads offered with the Aeromapper Talon, they have chosen the standard 24 Mp RGB Sony camera as well as the Micasense Rededge multispectral camera.
