UAV uses in the AGRICULTURE | NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT sector enable users to execute their analysis, planting, monitoring, application, and maintenance tasks associated with cultivation of crops, management of vegetation, and tracking of wildlife. UAV uses within this sector are commonly executed over significant distances and expansive land areas from relatively open and unobstructed launch/landing areas. Due to the potential range of sensor options applied for uses within this sector, UAV payload, flight time, and interchangeability of sensor payloads are generally key UAV performance attributes.

We are currently conducting field research and working through our ZYLTER Expert Network to compile detailed information on this UAS use. If you are an experienced UAS operator or expert in this sector and use we want to hear from you! COntact us to join the Zylter Expert Network.
Vertical Site Monitoring (VSM) entails use of a UAS to collect information on the condition, status and/or progress of vertical sites. UASs are commonly used to collect still and video images marking the progress of vertical site development. Due to the often-numerous vertical features and potentially constrained locations, UAS ability to launch, land, and fly in constrained spaces is often important for successful execution of this use.
Site developers and managers
Construction-focused UAS service providers
Potentially confined and complex construction sites with numerous vertical features and existing infrastructure concerns (power lines, etc.)
In or adjacent to existing building, structure and activities
Job sites with significant amount of personnel and vehicle activity
In addition to the priority user requirements identified above there are some use-specific considerations that should inform your development of the UAS life-cycle capabilities needed to successfully execute this use. We provide a range of support services to help you determine what these and other considerations mean for your UAS selection and use. These key considerations include:
