This talk will be a tour of what my company, Sentek Systems LLC, is doing
with drones, remote sensing, and mathematics in the Precision Agriculture
industry. Sentek Systems designs and manufactures multi-spectral cameras
made for use on small unmanned aerial vehicles (drones). We also make
software for image processing and analysis of drone imagery and we con-
duct research in crop management using remote sensing. I will show you
some of the basics of multi-spectral remote sensing and Photogrammetry,
and specifically how it relates to agriculture. I will also take you on a tour
of some of the interesting problems we have come across in our journey.
