Developing UAV-mounted geophysical sensor arrays
Project Number: P1204
Amira Program Manager: Olga Verezub
This study gathers international experts in geophysical instrumentation design and miniaturisation, in addition to UAV professionals, to explore the present and future potential of UAV-borne geophysical surveying. Beyond the use of individual UAVs to carry single geophysical transmitters or sensors, the project will consider the potential applications of transmitter and/or sensor arrays being carried by a fleet of drones.
Benefits from sponsoring this project include:
- You will gain insights to the requirements of future R&D efforts in sensor and operating platforms and be best placed to take advantage of the UAV revolution which will ultimately increase safety and productivity on mine sites.
- You will be at the forefront of new sensor development and have the ability to steer the direction of the R&D program.
- There is the potential to obtain patent protection of identified concepts from this Amira project.
- Access to the final report outlining the roadmap for the development and implementation of future sensors and platforms.
