Weeks after announcing an $18 million funder, Raleigh drone developer PrecisionHawk announced a move its execs say makes its technology even more accessible to farmers: a strategic partnership with another aerial systems developer, DJI.
The companies announced Tuesday that they’d inked an exclusive partnership to link DJI’s commercial-grade drone hardware with PrecisionHawk’s drone software platform.
The result? A product at a more accessible price point, and one that, according to a PrecisionHawk statement, could “set a new standard for UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) remote sensing within agriculture.”
Pat Lohman, vice president of partnerships at PrecisionHawk, said in an interview that his team was contacted by DJI about a year ago and began building software around DJI hardware about six months ago.
