Reinvent. Insect. Control.

We develop small autonomous drones to keep crops insect free

Pats

Like a bat or

Swallow

We design drones that eat flying insects.

With this bioinspired principle insect populations are proactively controlled. Our drones automatically maintain balance in the delicate equilibrium of a greenhouse eco-system. We understand the market’s needs and wishes to become more sustainable. The demand for biological and organic products increases while regulations on the use of insecticides become tighter. Our approach enables sustainable insect control with applications in all fields of horticulture. Moreover, we reduce your costs involved with insect control practices.

Labour savings

Insect monitoring and elimination are automated, which reduces the need for human intervention.

Organic

Less insecticides are required in the production process.

Yield improvement

The number of plants infected by insect pest outbreaks is reduced.

Quality

Reducing the number of spraying rounds will result in crops having a higher market value.

Technology

Our system is installed in existing greenhouse infrastructures. It acts as an early warning system, continuously monitoring the environment for harmful insects. Inspired by bats hunting insects in flight, elimination is performed by micro-drones that chase the insects

The PATS system is

  • Autonomous
  • Easy-to-fit in existing infrastructure
  • Proactively targeting insects
  • Safe around humans
  • Scalable & low maintenance

Patent

Our system is patented and developed in collaboration with TU Delft. This gives us access to the latest developments in autonomous microdrones.
