EnsoMOSAIC UAV

The most new activity in remote sensing is at the moment found in the UAV and UAS sector (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle / System). There are hundreds of companies, institutions and individuals constructing UAVs for various uses and objectives. Both fixed wing and helicopter -based approaches are popular.       To serve manufacturers and operators of UAVs Stora Enso has released new versions EnsoMOSAIC UAV and EnsoMOSAIC UAV Pro of its leading EnsoMOSAIC automatic small and medium format image processing software. The new versions have full functionality and image rectification power, and are scaled for typical imaging project sizes of... (read more)

What is a UAV?

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles come in different forms (fixed-wing, copter, hybrid) and for many purposes and require different skills. Re-usable aircraft flown without onboard human crew have been in existence since 1916, the bulk of applications concerning reconnaissance and other military missions too shady, dirty or dodgy for human lives to be jeopardised. Ongoing miniaturisation of electronics is enabling smaller and smaller Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), and these are increasingly equipped with cameras or other sensors to support aerial geo-data collection. UAVs appear in manifestations as diverse as aeroplanes and helicopters of all sizes and shapes, motorised para-gliders, blimps, kites and balloons. What sort of UAV is suitable as a platform for digital cameras and other remote sensors? The... (read more)

A Truly Photogrammetric UAV

AviSystem/Taxus SI
The AviSystem UAV was made on the assumption that it was intended to be a photogrammetric system. Hence, when designing the AVI, it was created for long, stable, precise and efficient flying – photogrammetric flying. AVI right before take-off. The Polish company Taxus SI Ltd. embarked on the AviSystem project in 2009 with support from the European Regional Development Fund. Poland’s best specialists in the field of unmanned aircraft construction were invited to join the project. Design of the entire system, of which the main element is the AVI drone, was completed within two years. The AVI is an electrically... (read more)

KOREC Strengthens UAV Position

An agreement with Germany-based hexacopter manufacturer Aibotix improves the position of KOREC, headquartered in the UK, in the UAV sector. The company will be an Aibotix ‘Premier Partner’ and the sole UK and Irish distributor of the multicopter Aibot X6. The Aibot X6 will broaden KOREC’s offering in the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) market and compliment KOREC’s existing static wing UAV solution, the SenseFly SwingletCAM. UAVs offer a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to manned aerial surveys, reduce the need for long planning cycles and provide a fast turnaround of data. The Aibot X6 is built out of ultra-light carbon... (read more)

ARGOS Electric UAV

CATUAV, Spain, has developed an electric version of the ARGOS UAV platform designed specifically to meet the demands of CSIC's MESTRAL project. This new platform will enable images to be obtained simultaneously in the thermal, NIR and visible spectrums in Alfacs Bay in a single one-hour flight. The new ARGOS Electric has successfully completed the testing phase and will be ready to enter service in early September. (read more)

Rwanda Pioneers UAV Mapping

After Rwanda made waves in the news early last year for allegedly being the first country to approve drone-based deliveries, people started paying attention. The country, with its rolling hills and one of the fastest-growing economies in Central Africa, has already established regulations regarding drones and become a vanguard of sorts for the region. To support this development, in 2016 the University of Twente organised a course in Rwanda on the latest drone mapping techniques. There is a huge market in Africa at the moment, according to Francesco Nex, assistant professor at the ITC Faculty, University of Twente. The country is growing very fast, with... (read more)
