Sentera PHX

Sentera PHX

Sentera’s PHX™is a highly-reliable, easy-to-use, hand-launchable fixed-wing drone that gives you the ability to view live HD video and capture a wide array of analytic data, including stand count, weed detection, and plant health using the newest variants of the Sentera Double 4K sensor payload.

Leveraging a new long-range omnidirectional communication link, the PHX has a reach of 2+ miles, quickly scouting large fields with precision and is ideal for experienced pilots. The PHX is the best-performing and best-valued professional fixed-wing drone available today.

The PHX is hot-swappable, accepting several different sensor types – including ultra-precise RTK GPS Double 4K sensor payloads.

Industry-leading Outcomes:

  • Deep Analytics: Purpose-build payload options allow you to perform stand count, weed detection, and plant health analytics. PHX is the only fixed-wing drone that maps stand counts and weed locations early in the growing season when action matters. Sentera’s FieldAgent™ data analytics software allows PHX users to create accurate maps and make decisions at the field edge without an internet connection.
  • Long-range: By using an omnidirectional, industrial-grade communications link, the PHX is designed to fly up to two miles away or more. This is helpful for users with BVLOS permissions, and ideal for the average user who stays within the typical one-mile VLOS range.
  • Fast Setup: A small, lightweight, plug-and-play communication box and streamlined pre-flight checklist enable you to easily go from setup to launch quickly and easily.
  • Multiple Payload Options: The 2019 PHX accepts the newest versions of Sentera Double 4K sensors, allowing you to capture more crop health data and gain deeper insights. Ultra-precise RTK GPS is an available option for all PHX Double 4K sensor payloads.

With a cruise speed of 35mph and up to a 59-minute endurance, the PHX is capable of covering broad areas that other drones of the same size cannot. In a single flight, the PHX can collect data from 700 acres.

Leverage the PHX RTK variant to achieve sub-5cm and better accuracy on orthomosaics and 3D mapping and modeling products. Achieve this without the need for surveyed ground control points or time-consuming post-processing of the GPS data. An ideal solution for survey, agriculture, and mapping customers who need to reliably – and quickly – capture precision data, the dual-band RTK payload delivers true L1/L2, multi-constellation RTK to the PHX. Sentera’s latest offering shatters the cost barrier for industrial-grade, dual-frequency RTK-enabled image collection.
