FORESTRY

The wide range of end-to-end UAVs solutions, consisting of

aircraft, payloads and data processing software

for wild forest and tree plantation,

including:

 

  • Forest inventory measurements using LiDAR technology
  • Fire discovery and visual support during firefighting operations
  • Forest health control, detecting pests and disease
  • Inspections of the forest infrastructure: roads, fire ways, canals, power lines etc.

  • Pointclouds and 3D models: DEM, DTM, & DSM
  • Multispectral and hyperspectral cameras inspections
  • Surveillance cameras
  • Mapping systems

EXTENDED FIGHT TIMES AND LARGER PAYLOAD CAPACITIES

The heavy-duty aircraft developed at EWATT offer payload capacities and flight times that allow the completion of inspections of large patches of forest in a single flight.

For example, the electric EWZ-D6s payload capacity allows for the installation of high-end LiDAR systems, along with RGB and IR cameras.

The light-weight EWG-E2V VTOL fixed wing with an increased payload capacity of up to 2kg is a mapping aircraft capable of a flight time of up to 90 minutes.

FULLY DIGITAL FOREST INVENTORY MEASUREMENTS

Collect the forest data with UAV systems ensures the full area coverage and the 100% authenticity of measurements. With the easily accessible digital data researchers and foresters can refine their insight into the areas of interest and monitor it is condition over short-term (e.g. routine health checks etc.) and long term (e.g. comparing the growth characteristics of homogenous tree compartments etc.).

All EWATT UAVs are fully autonomous flight (take-off, flight, data acquisition and landing), are easy to deploy and retrieve. The inventory data acquisition is completed with a single LiDAR systems and optional cameras mounted on EWATT aircraft (a multirotor or VTOL fixed wing aircraft). Flight plans can be preprogrammed and stored in the UAV fleet management system, allowing users to redo exact the same mission in the future by uploading the stored flight plan.

CONSULTING

With a vast experience in payload integration and a wide selection of modular cameras and professional sensors, EWATT advises users on the best hardware and software to accomplish their mission objectives.

Knowing and understanding the needs of the forestry clients, we work with them to set up systems that automate data capture, end to end processing and data analysis.

Depending on the client’s requirements EWATT can deliver accurate information including 3D models, volume calculations, high-resolution aerial imagery, digital surface models, and a number of other deliverables.
