Our solution

The project aim was to develop the following types of UAVO platforms:

  • Patrol Platform – equipped with electrooptical heads with light and infrared sensors.
  • Research Platform – equipped with trays designed for air pollution analysis.
  • Research Platform – equipped with specialized sensors able to evaluate onsite environmental contamination by chemical substances.
  • Research Platform – equipped with a sampling system for chemical analysis.
  • Research Platform – equipped with an NDVI camera to assess the degree of decomposition of biological flora.
  • Unified Exploratory Platform – consisting of a Repeater (signal carrier platform) and Mini-Observer equipped with a lightweight camera to monitor the interior of buildings.
  • Photogrammetric Platform – equipped with a proprietary imaging navigation system that allows for movement in hard-to-reach areas.
