Technology for sustainability: Unmanned Air Systems
An Unmanned Air System (UAS) refers to an advanced aviation technology that typically consists of a remotely piloted air vehicle and its control station. UASs serve as versatile platforms for data collection, including images and videos, as well as for delivering various payloads such as medicine, emergency supplies, and fertilisers.
By leveraging UAS technology, significant improvements in crop management and environmental monitoring can be achieved, thereby unlocking substantial potential for increased yields. This allows growers to save a considerable amount of time by swiftly surveying large areas in minutes instead of hours, enabling them to promptly identify and address issues.
