UAVOS has demonstrated the use of drones in forestry inspection

| |

Combining digital data and its customized software, UAVOS has completed a drone-based forest inspection project to assess the general timber environment. 

The project, carried out in partnership with a forestry and land management company, employed a Borey fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) equipped with a digital camera. The goal of the project was to analyze high-accuracy spatial data and create a 3D line map from airborne digital photogrammetry and telemetry.

The high-precision aerial images allowed the UAVOS team to automatically identify symptoms of tree pests and diseases, assess general tree health, and conduct illegal logging activity assessments. Carrying out forestry inspections with drones makes such operations faster and more effective.

Our project’s outcome demonstrated the ability to comprehensively survey nearly 1000 acres (400 hectares) of forest area, using the Borey unmanned aircraft, in only a few weeks time.
