Environmental Protection Assessment, and Safety Monitoring

The UAV's ability to observe a potential environmental hazard, threat or to assess pollution issues is unprecedented and very practical.

See Publication: "Drones are taking off for Environmental Research"

The UAV's ability to observe a potential environmental hazard, threat or to assess pollution issues is unprecedented and very practical.

In addition, using or new FPV (Fist Person View) capability, an observer is able to work with the UAV pilot/operator in real time to fly into a specific POI (Point of Interest).

For example, if during the flight mission, evidence of an oil or pollutant spill is recognized, the aircraft is then able to fly down to that specific area and even hover within 3-5 ft of it.

All this is done very fast, efficiently, and with no risk to human safety or property.

The UAS also posses very little risk to the environment and creates no air pollution (100% electric).

UAV applications for environment protection could include the following:

  • Pipeline monitoring
  • Spill assessment or patrolling
  • Landfill or wasteland assessment
  • Watershed protection and patrol
  • Fire hazards..... Forest fire scouting
  • Environmental disaster prevention or assessment
  • IIlegal dumping inspections
  • Tree and agriculture health and disease control
  • Air Quality testing
  • Water testing and survey.

Oil Spill assessments:

  • Assess where the best place to deploy oil spill control assets by observing aerial views of the spills
  • Monitor the progress and clean up efforts at time intervals
  • Assess damages for insurance claims and control efforts.
