Dropcopter’s mission is automated pollination of orchard crops via unmanned aircraft systems (UAS); farming efficiency, the promotion of new technologies, and healthy crop yield growth. In early 2015, Dropcopter completed its patent pending prototype, and conducted the first ever UAS pollination of orchards crops, boosting crop yields by 10%.
Dropcopter is partnered with the US helicopter manufacturer Pulse Aerospace, using their industry grade Vapor55 helicopter to carry our patent pending "Worker-Bee" pollinator. Our methods guarantee growers crops are pollinated, ignoring environmental factors such as wind and cold that would prevent honeybee activity.
Our 2015 - 2017 trials have shown a dramatic crop set increase of 10% nut set in almonds, scalable across large areas.
We are a team with diverse backgrounds in agriculture, robotics, and entrepreneurship.
