Drone Volt launches autonomous spraying system for drones

The spraying system integrates a mounted frame, a 12-liter tank and a foldable spray boom, equipped with 4 rotating head nozzles. The unit can be attached to Drone Volt’s Hercules 20, a large 8-engine carrier, dedicated to carrying heavy loads such as this new sprayer tool.

Thanks to its precision spray flow control, the Hercules 20/Sprayer combination is to meet the challenges of precision agriculture aiming at improving the yields and the environmental performances of crops. It has the advantage of also treating uneven, difficult to access or sloping agricultural plots, thus limiting human risks.

Spray an area of 1 to 2 hectares

Equipped with a large capacity tank, the fully customisable tool allows the operator to efficiently and accurately spray an area of 1 to 2 hectares, depending on the droplet size setting programmed via a mobile app. The IPX7 standard ensures the droplet size control system is resistant to liquids.

95-100% of the droplets of identical size

According to Drone Volt, 95-100% of the droplets are of identical size, which allows for the system to provide exactly what is needed. The company states that the homogeneous distribution of the drops is a key element for optimising the quantity of inputs used because droplets that are too large can fall off from plants and droplets that are too small can dissipate in the atmosphere.

Save up to 30 to 50% of input products

Drone Volt says this device allows to save up to 30 to 50% of input products and up to 90% of water used compared to conventional hydraulic spraying systems.

“This new tool, combined with our high-performance Hercules 20, is the ideal solution for carrying out autonomous and efficient spraying missions. Dedicated to precision agriculture, our technology rationalises phytosanitary products, limits environmental impacts and thus contributes to the transition towards advanced agriculture,” said Marc Courcelle, CEO of Drone Volt.
