Drones for operational filming and situation monitoring


The use of UAVs by forestry orga­ni­za­tions began in 2006 and to this day is a rather top­i­cal issue. Cur­rent­ly, cycles of sci­en­tif­ic and prac­ti­cal work on the use of drones in solv­ing prob­lems in the forestry indus­try are being intro­duced. Accord­ing to inter­na­tion­al and domes­tic experts, with­in 5 years the forestry indus­try will become the largest exploiter and con­sumer of unmanned robots.

Drones and fire

Drone retrofitting

One of the most impor­tant advan­tages of a quadro­copter is the abil­i­ty to install sen­sors for var­i­ous appli­ca­tions, in par­tic­u­lar fire sen­sors, in hard-to-reach places, which makes it pos­si­ble to pre­vent a fire haz­ard sit­u­a­tion and inform ground res­cue ser­vices in time about the loca­tion of poten­tial sources of fire.

Dur­ing the work, the tasks of infor­ma­tion sup­port for ground ser­vices for extin­guish­ing large cen­ters of for­est fires, avi­a­tion patrolling of local areas of forests, con­duct­ing a gen­er­al study of forests, coun­ter­ing ille­gal activ­i­ties in forests are being worked out. The method of mon­i­tor­ing the state of peat fires with the help of ther­mal imagers is also being improved.

A mobile lab­o­ra­to­ry for mon­i­tor­ing for­est fires is an effec­tive help in solv­ing the prob­lems of oper­a­tional con­trol and man­age­ment. Con­trol sen­sors installed in hard-to-reach places make it pos­si­ble to deter­mine the prospects for using tech­no­log­i­cal struc­tures to study and expand the range of tasks that can be applied in forestry with the pres­ence of drones.

Mass pro­duc­tion of unmanned robots that are clos­est to the required tech­ni­cal con­di­tions of use, as well as sta­ble in ease of con­trol and oper­a­tion, is now quite rel­e­vant. Some of the unique fea­tures of such robots include the func­tion of track­ing mov­ing objects by a drone and the abil­i­ty to track them using spe­cial bea­cons in auto­mat­ic mode.

Drones to help firefighters


With the help of UAVs, you can get valu­able pho­tos and high-qual­i­ty video mate­ri­als. The tech­ni­cal and soft­ware capa­bil­i­ties pro­grammed in such robots allow the trans­fer of the received data to a com­mon infor­ma­tion base based on the exist­ing remote mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem.

An impor­tant advan­tage of drones is the pres­ence of a quick-change tar­get load and equip­ping with a gyro-resis­tant cam­era with a view­ing angle of 360 degrees, the pos­si­bil­i­ty of using var­i­ous con­trol meth­ods, com­pil­ing your own infor­ma­tion base through the use of addi­tion­al struc­tures installed on mov­ing objects and the use of var­i­ous types of data trans­mis­sion.

Drones for monitoring

Unmanned robots are used to pro­vide reli­able and appro­pri­ate infor­ma­tion sup­port to ground fire brigades when extin­guish­ing large fires, as well as to con­trol indi­vid­ual sec­tions of forests in order to iden­ti­fy poten­tial­ly dan­ger­ous places.

In prac­tice, drones will be used to mon­i­tor exist­ing peat fires using infrared and opti­cal sen­sors, pre­lim­i­nary inspec­tion of the state of cin­der areas, and oper­a­tional sur­vey of for­est areas in order to ana­lyze the data obtained.

Each UAV is equipped with a cam­era, which makes it pos­si­ble to obtain excel­lent qual­i­ty pho­tographs, which can lat­er be used for map­ping and cre­at­ing an evi­dence base dur­ing the inves­ti­ga­tion of ille­gal sit­u­a­tions.

In addi­tion to work on iden­ti­fy­ing fires, a method­ol­o­gy is being devel­oped for using unmanned robots to solve forestry and for­est pro­tec­tion tasks.
