“We have had great results even though our particular aircraft is still using your beta program. Probably the most important thing has been the ability to easily speak with someone and get assistance when we needed it. The customer service has been great.”  Jonathan Cook


“All of my renderings has been sent back really quick, and having the added benefit of server support with the staff at DroneDeploy, the whole process was super easy.  This was hands down the best software that I have used with the DJI Inspire 1.  I look forward to using trying to play with many of my future projects.” Shaun Capps


“This software is extremely powerful. It's simplicity is unmatched, and being able to generate a crop health map in minutes is a first. I can see every grower operating one in the near future.” ­ Bret Chilcot




The AerialMediaPros NDVI Phantom 3 Camera uses the original Sony EXMOR 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and image capturing hardware from the Phantom 3.  The original Phantom 3 camera has been modified to filter solely Blue + NIR waves in an effort to maximize capability for a broad range of agricultural uses.  Dualband NDVI imaging gives you many of the same benefits of multispectral imaging without the need for large and expensive equipment. AerialMediaPros is continuing to work with ag professionals to develop the most relevant combinations for differing crops and disease identifications.


Note: The Ag Scout Basic uses a Phantom 3 camera which has been permanently converted for NDVI, so you will be limited to working with dualband blue/pink imagery.  If you are looking to acquire normal color (RGB) and NDVI imagery, we highly recommend upgrading to the  Ag Scout Pro for its modular camera system.  

The Ag Scout series functions normally with the DJI Pilot App and all other compatible applications.
