The Ungulate Disease and Damage research project (USDA APHIS division) has selected the Aeromapper Talon from Aeromao Inc, 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. The cameras are easily swappable on the UAV. They have decided on the Aeromapper Talon because it offers a very unique set of characteristics, like: Interchangeability between the RGB and high end Multiespectral cameras, Long range communications link, Mission editing while in-flight, Parachute recovery, Operations in tight areas thanks to its impressive climb rate and easy handlaunch, and Fully autonomous flight. The Aeromapper Talon also offers an optional GNSS PPK upgrade.
