we do

Combating climate change and biodiversity loss by combining drone technology, artificial and data driven intelligence with our proprietary seed pod bio-technology

Our process

An innovative and scalable solution.

Reforestation and re-vegetation that is faster and cheaper than traditional manual planting practices.


Mapping, Ground Truthing and Soil Sampling

Mapping plays an integral part in analysing reforestation areas. It provides the necessary base map to analyse plant health, identify site specific plant species and create an optimum planting pattern.

Ground Truthing allows image data to be related to real features and materials on the ground and aids the interpretation and analysis of the mapped data.

Soil samples are analysed for present nutrients, minerals and other such elements. Once identified, a soil specific carbon seed pod can then be manufactured.


Carbon Seed Pod Manufacture

Our patented Seed pods are a low cost, low-impact solution to reforesting native species and provide several supplementary nutrients, minerals and other additions, all of which are necessary for developing seedlings but may not be available in abundance in the soil at a planting location.

These unique advantages boost the growth rates of developing seedlings by delivering necessary elements directly to the root systems of the germinated seeds.


Flight Planning and Planting

The data collected at Step 1 is used to drive accurate flight plans that not only fly the drones, but also trigger the carbon seed pod and carbon pellet delivery systems at predefined GPS coordinates.

The drone hoppers are loaded with the correct quantity of carbon seed pods for the respective planting area. Then, on command, the drones take off autonomously, flying the pre-programmed flight plan, executing the predefined planting pattern before landing. This automation results in a 25x faster process when compared with traditional manual planting methods.


Post Planting Monitoring and Surveying

Post planting surveys play a very important part in our workflow.

By re-mapping the planted areas after planting has taken place, and using powerful all-in-one-feature-extraction, classification, and change detection solutions that harnesses artificial intelligence and computer learning algorithms, we can detect change over time, count tree canopies and calculate biomass. This helps to accurately monitor and report growth rates and ultimately the success of the reforestation/re-vegetation project.
