RPAAS Technology

Remotely Piloted Aerial Application Systems (RPAAS) technology is being utilized worldwide to increase operator safety, minimize the amount of pesticides used and access tight or hard to reach areas where traditional equipment cannot go. TTA is a worldwide leader in RPAAS technology offering 6 different platforms ranging in size from 5-20L, as well as an interchangeable 20kg granular spreading device that can be installed on the 20L platform in under 5 minutes.

With tens of thousands of aircraft flying worldwide combining for over 1 million flight hours, TTA was a clear choice when we decided to enter the RPAAS world. With the current ability to apply liquid fertilizer, micronutrients, granular fertilizer as well as grass seed with centimetre-precision from these RPAAS platforms, we are revolutionizing the Canadian Vegetation Management industry. Strongfield Environmental Solutions is also spearheading a nationwide working group to gather the required information to responsibly bring pesticide application via RPAAS technology to Canada.

M4E - 5L Capacity

With its low cost and convenient portability, this is an ideal entry level RPAAS that delivers performance well above its weigh class. With its 5L capacity this unit is perfect for small or difficult to access areas such as gardens, slopes or research plots.

M6E-X RTF - 10L Capacity

Drone m6e x

This 6 rotor RPAAS features a robust dual-pump system feeding 6 motor-mounted spray nozzles. At its price point, this aircraft will not be outperformed in capability, quality or features. Terrain following, fully autonomous flight planning and a waterproof design are features found standard on this aircraft.

M8A Pro - 20L Capacity

Drone m8a pro

The M8A Pro features our largest carrying capacity of 20L. This RPAAS boasts a carbon fibre boom-mounted spray system which can be swapped out for a 20kg capacity granular spreader for seeding grass or spreading fertilizer. This conversion is completed in 5 minutes and makes this unit an industry leader.


Drone sp9 vtol

Fixed wing endurance matched with the VTOL capabilities of a multirotor, the SP9 VTOL offers the best of both worlds. A 1-2hr flight time, 2kg carrying capacity and a wide variety of payload options make this the ideal choice for any large mapping or surveillance mission.

Vegetation Management

Develop project specific integrated pest management (IPM) strategies specifically designed to meet our clients short term goals and long term visions.

By using all available pest control techniques, we discourage the development of pest populations by keeping pesticides and other interventions to levels that are economically justified and minimize risks to human health and the environment. The balance approach a fully functioning IPM program provides reduces the development of pesticide reliance and resistance development.
