  4. 4. 1. Main farmers’ pains that we’re solving
  5. 5. Money & time investment Application of crop protection impacts up to 70% of yield, defining farmers prosperity. Thus outsourcing it to aerial or other services leads to limited control and vulnerability. Too costly Crop protection with ground application takes up to 20% of crop value due to trampling and requires a big equipment capex. Aerial application with currently available aviation services can cut these costs roughly in half to $25-50 per hectare. Aerial application in 78% of cases is outsourced, thus prone to capacity shortage. Time constraints The crop protection needs to be applied in particular moment of the crop or pest life cycle (often window is limited to 1 day). So being able to make it exactly when it is needed is very important and not possible with current states of things in any way of application. Kray Protection UAS is a reliable, inexpensive, in-house, productive aerial solution for crop protection application that could solve these severe pains, experienced by any farmer with middle-sized acreage.
  6. 6. 2. Our solution Kray Protection Project Overview
  7. 7. Compound multirotor 2m sized UAV VTOL UAV utilizes central wing and horizontal thrust rotor along with lift rotors. Max speed of 110 km/h Maintaining low energy consumption, as lift force is divided between lift rotors and wing. Automated spraying mission We use fast stereo vision solution to create a real- time surface map and obstacle avoidance. Precise GPS navigation It allows our UAV to follow crop surface on minimal altitude of 1 m, avoiding collisions with ground and obstacles on the route automatically. Coverage speed 27-37 hectares/hour for chemical application. It competes with the highest coverage speeds achievable with ground robotic & aviation- base aerial application solutions. Our solution is applicable on the field of any size, on any crop and at any ground conditions. Cost of operation $1-2 per hectare, which is 20-50 times less than currently available aerial application services. This drone replaces aviation services on fields up to 1000 hectares, being typically paid back in less than 1 year. Kray Protection: cargo drones for crop protection

  9. 9. The most challenging aspects of aerial crop protection are: ◍ Reaching maximum yielding capacity ◍ Uniform pesticide application on different speeds and dosages ◍ Controlled drop application to prevent different drop sizes ◍ Precision control of dosage in accordance with application map
  10. 10. “Yield capacity in developed countries is 2 times higher than in developing countries due to clever crop protection techniques application
  11. 11. Advanced ultra-low volume spraying system Coverage quality We’ve reached the best spraying coverage quality on different speeds of UAV and application dosages due to rotary atomizers spraying design. This way we simultaneously change the flow and rotor spin speed to maintain stable drop size. This technique allows us to uniformly cover all field, including field borders. Drop size Drop size can be adjusted (30 to 90 micron with variations of only ±10%). This allows to use UAV for insecticides, herbicides and fungicides application as well as for foliar dressing. Pesticide economy Ultra-low volume application allows not only to cover big acreages with low application cost. It increases application efficiency of pesticides up to 3 times (e.g. for Roundup) making substantial economy by reducing usage of expensive chemicals.
  12. 12. ADVANTAGES OF OUR SPRAYING SOLUTION ◍ Spraying cost decreased by 10 times ◍ Herbicide cost decreased up to 3 times ◍ Maximized yield capacity
  13. 13. 4. Market overview
  14. 14. “Aerial application drones market of US and Canada is estimated at $1.8B annually with formation in next 3 years and occupation in 8 years
  15. 15. Our estimation is based on the following data: ◍ More than 50% of total US&C cropland is operated by farms with acreage of 50-1000 hectares with median of 310 hectares in Canada ◍ About 90% of farmers use aerial application, paying $25-$50 per hectare ◍ About 60% of Canadian farmers currently use drones for monitoring and precision agriculture aerial mapping ◍ About 22% of farmers have their own aircraft for crop protection ◍ Total number of farmers in Canada is about 200K ◍ 1 unit of our drone can cover up to 300 hectares of cropland ◍ In total, about 200 000 drones are required for the middle-acreage farms of US&C ◍ 6 years is a usual turnover time for light agricultural machinery market ◍ Drone regulation for agricultural market already allows commercial application in Canada with routine yearly permission from regulator, and in the US, where FAA certification of solution is needed in addition.
  16. 16. Sales start: ◍ End of 2016 pre sales market check with Fundable platform ◍ Direct sales start in 2017 ◍ Channel sales through precision agriculture service providers, chemicals manufacturers, machinery distributors
  17. 17. 5. Competition
  18. 18. Coverage speed Existing solutions underperform compared to Kray Protection UAV, covering just 2-7 hectares per hour Payload Existing solutions allow to load only 5-14 litres of chemicals. Kray Protection UAV chemical load is up to 22,5 litres with the highest payload-to- weight ratio of 0.8 Applicability Existing solution are not fully automated so are not applicable for big fields dusting. Kray Protection UAV maintains position with the lowest altitude on high speed, and avoids obstacles automatically Currently there is no professional UAV solution for crop dusting Drawbacks of existing solutions: Existing solutions do not cover middle and big acreage fields, being appropriate for small households. Due to high cost of the solutions, payback time can reach up to several years
