Novosibirsk State University has developed a UAV-mobile complex for high-precision environmental monitoring. Due to the use of a high-frequency magnetometer, highly sensitive gamma-ray spectrometer, gas analyzer, as well as special software for data processing, the costs of environmental monitoring are reduced significantly, often by more than 3-5 times. The University seeks partners for scientific cooperation and service agreements
The innovation lies in the combination of highly efficient sensors and special software for processing the collected data, which allows us to obtain a very detailed description of magnetic anomaly, which is unattainable for the current generation of UAVs:
•Highly sensitive high-frequency vector magnetometric channel with a mass of ~0.6 kg. Sensitivity up to ±0.07 nT at frequencies up to 3000 Hz.
•Software for interpretation and visualization of geophysical measurement data, which allows calculating the depth and morphology of the magnetic anomaly using the information obtained from the magnetometer and other sensors of the complex.
•Ultra-light UAV with a low level of magnetic noise
•High-precision gas analyzer (methane, 1 - 1000 ppm),.
•Light Gamma - spectrometer (0.05 - 3 MeV),
Extremely high performance of our system makes it possible to carry out environmental monitoring tasks quickly and efficiently in fully automatic mode:
- Air quality monitoring (determination of ash particles, gases and radionuclides content);
- Soil condition monitoring (assessment of humus content);
- Monitoring of nuclear waste burial grounds, nuclear power plants, tailing dumps, including during emergencies;
- Monitoring of pipelines and gas holders integrity, search for unauthorized taps;
- Search for hidden pipelines, foundation parts, cable lines, etc. in the course of construction surveys.
