Sony Smart Agriculture Solution


The Sony Smart Agriculture Solution—the result of extensive research and beta testing—supports day-to-day crop management by collecting and analyzing data on growth and health status quickly and accurately.

The Sony sensor and real-time vegetation analytics software speed up scouting and provide a compelling perspective on crop health—empowering users to rapidly identify problem areas, coordinate ground truthing and target treatment with precision.

The Multispectral Camera and GNSS Sensor Unit surveys large areas of land and meticulously collects data, rapidly generating a combined NDVI and RGB map in the field—without the need for an internet connection.

Image stitching produces comprehensive crop health data, fast. The Sony proprietary technology uses fast image stitching with only 20% image overlap, compared to 80% for conventional stitching. This enables quick image capture for large areas, covering up to 160 acres/65 hectares each flight.

The RMUS ready to deploy solution 

features the Sony MSZ-2100G Camera on a phantom 4 advanced.  The package includes additional batteries, propellers, a charging hub and a rugged transport case.

The Sony Fast Field Analyzer software produces in-depth data and maps, streamlining drone field surveys and providing you with essential crop health data in minutes.  

Obtain in-depth, accurate data with no internet connection required. The easy-to-use software processes multiple flights in a single transfer. The Fast Field Analyzer processes data fast enough to enable daily crop decision-making, even with no internet connectivity and limited processing power on site.

Agronomists and growers need a broad view. The Quick Segmentation tool provides an overarching perspective of an entire field at a glance, including an NDVI heat map and a high-resolution view of overall crop density, to help you make an informed initial assessment and decide where to focus next.

Inspect areas more closely with advanced diagnostic tools. Users can define regions or points of interest on the map and get further insights thanks to the Field Assessment Feature, which includes a pie chart and breakout view that segments heat map colors to make diagnosis quick and easy.
