Oleksandr Kholodiuk – Ph.D, Senior Lecturer of the Department of "Operation of a machine-tractor park and technical service" of Vinnytsia National Agrarian University (3, Sonychna St., Vinnytsia, 21008, Ukraine, e-mail: email@example.com, https://orcid.org/0000-0002-4161-6712).
Scientific and technological progress today allows the widespread use of modern technologies in agriculture in the planning and use of agricultural technologies. Such technologies are the use of unmanned aerial vehicles as well. Now they allow to collect information about the field, make an orthophoto of the field, monitor crops and its condition at different stages of plant development, perform cartography, monitor the normalized vegetation index, spray plant protection products to control pests and diseases or make a trichogram.
The object of research in this article is the process of preparation, adjustment, planning of flight missions and the use of unmanned aerial vehicle AgrasT16 for spraying work sites.
The aim of the research is the effective use of the Agras T16 drone from DJI by substantiating the main measures for the timeliness and correctness of its preparation for work, setting the specified operating parameters, planning missions and calculating its productivity.
The objectives of the work: to analyze the existing research on the use of unmanned aerial vehicles in Ukraine for agricultural purposes; to establish design features of the drone; to find out the basic settings and flight planning; to establish the productivity of the drone on spraying and to substantiate measures and ways of its effective use.
The methods of research include the method of cognitive activity and methods of analysis and synthesis of both information from official sources and information from the works of other researchers.
The scientific work deals with the different design and technical features of the Agras T16 hexacopter from the previous generation models. The practical aspects of its use in spraying, preparation for work, adjustment, selection of the necessary mode of operation, planning of fields and flight missions by means of the remote control and work with the charging station have been substantiated. The main features of different modes of its operation Manual Operation, Manual Plus, A-B Route Operation, Route Operation, which will allow you to solve various tasks have been highlighted. Particular attention has been paid to the methods of field flight planning (routes) of the drone, setting up the spray system, calibration of the compass and nozzles. According to the results of theoretical research, the productivity of the drone per hour of variable time has been established, which amounted to 8.8 ha/h.
The measures to reduce unproductive time spent when spraying Agras T16 work areas have been substantiated.
