Hylio calls the AG-272 its Texas-sized drone. With a 68.2-litre (18-gallon) capacity, and up to 12.2-metre (40ft) swath width, it can cover up to 50 acres per hour at a 7.6 litre (2 gallon) per acre application rate. The AG-272 is a system for producers and applicators who want to tackle hundreds, or even thousands, of acres per day.
The waterproof, fully autonomous, eight-rotor UAS platform is designed and manufactured by Hylio. It comes equipped with a high-precision spraying system, TeeJet nozzles, and electronic flowmeters. Operators have real-time access to GPS position, flow-rate, altitude, and more.
For applications with centimetre-level precision, the operator can utilise Hylio’s RTK base station solution. The GPS units equipped on the drone are already compatible with the base station. The AG-272 is equipped with multiple wide-angle radars pointing laterally, upwards, and downwards. These radars give the AG-272 a near-complete sphere of radar detection and avoidance.
