PURPOSE AND SCOPE
Nowadays the use of autonomous aircrafts is rather actual for solving problems of various types. Especially appropriate there is the use of such devices in the agricultural sector to diagnose the state plantings of plants.
Potential scopes of the complex MV - 5U: monitoring the condition of the plants on agricultural fields; mapping of a specified area; object monitoring; 3D - model construction of the relief of a given area; inspection of public dump sites; construction and validation of large - scale facilities; search and rescue.
THE ESSENCE OF THE DEVELOPMENT
Modern high - precision MEMS technology, satellite GPS navigation system, multispectral high resolution camera, software providing with an intuitive, ergonomic interface are used in the developed complex. The software works with modern, innovative multispectral camera ParrotSequoia.
The software product includes a tracing panel of a given polygon to perform an orthophotogrammetric shooting, a multispectral camera dashboard, parameters display panel of a small autonomous aircraft.
MAIN ADVANTAGES OF DEVELOPMENT
Unlike analogs, the complex is simple in operation and has a low cost which gives ability to use it not only in the domestic but in the global market.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY STATUS
A patent application of Ukraine was filed.
The demand of the development is caused by the fact that up to now not all agricultural companies can afford to purchase a full unmanned complex for solving diagnostics problems. These are problems which concern the fields` state due to the need of staff training and high cost of services.
STATE OF READINESS FOR DEVELOPMENT
Ground station software control – 75% ; software aircraft – 75% ; aircraft avionics – 80% .
