IONOS having unique knowledge and operational experience in precision
agricultural applications with UAVs, suitable partners, and modern equipment,
offers comprehensive and reliable services with the aim of integrating aerial
robotic technology in the primary sector, with respect for people and nature.
IONOS has created the first official research programs for applications with Agri Drones in arable and tree crops (EXARCHOS, IONEL, ACTPHAST program, etc.).
Our collaborations with universities, research centers, and private and government agencies aim to:
Promote the development of new methods and practices in agriculture using
unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Provide the means and staff to support research projects.
We support the research of new educational methods for the safe and
effective use of drones
Evaluate the effectiveness of active ingredients in agricultural sciences
We develop Hardware and Software in UAVs for the needs of each crop and
We provide step-by-step instructions and guidance for completing the
licensing required for agricultural drone applications.
• Update on the current legal framework governing agricultural UAV
operations in Europe (according to EASA) and the national framework where
the operations are carried out.
• We provide legal advice on obtaining UAV operator licenses, as well as
possibilities to use UAVs of specific makes and methods.
By combining technical and economic parameters, we guide the producer to
operate the drones efficiently, safely and at the minimum cost
• Transportation to agricultural fields throughout the Balkans, depending on
