Drones

In 2017 the use of drones (or RPAS as they are officially known) in Kenya is to be allowed under strict conditions as posed by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA). Unregistered drones flown without permission can be confiscated. 

Upande has several years of experience in drones and is one of the first parties to be able to offer legal drone services. Our experience includes both fixed wing and rotary drones. 

Fixed Wing Applications

  • Digital Elevation Modeling (DEM)
  • Contour generation
  • Orthophoto production
  • 3D flyover animations
  • Precision farming
  • Soil property & moisture analysis
  • Crop health analysis
  • Yield forecasting
  • Biomass estimation
  • Growth/coverage monitoring

Rotary Applications

  • Aerial photography
  • 360° panoramic photography (example)
  • Inspection flights
  • Aerial survey
  • Fly over video production

Upande believes in partnerships
