Weather drone

Foreign media reports: Meteorological researchers are discovering the value of using drones for scientific research. In a project designed to help understand current climate issues, a BOREAL fixed-wing UAV equipped with specialized sensors was used to collect data from the surrounding area of Barbados.

The role of the EUREC4A project (explaining the clouds-circulation coupled climate), the combined biophysical chemistry of the Max Planck Institute in Hamburg (Germany) and the Laboratory of Dynamic Meteorology (Laboratoire de Meteorologie Dynamique: LMD) in Paris, brought More than 100 scientists from Europe and the United States understand climate issues. "Understanding the effects of climate change on the tropics, especially on trade winds, is a major challenge. In fact, detecting changes in the properties of these phenomena (even small ones) is crucial because they illustrate the control The climate's heat exchange is unbalanced.” A press release said. More than 10 international climate laboratories and 5 ocean observation ships, instrument floats, land-based tools such as balloons and aerosols, meteorological research aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles-including "north long-range fixed wing"-participated in the challenge.

Scientific drone

Multiple drones were used in this project, in conjunction with manned meteorological aircraft, to "collect radiation measurements, aerosols, temperature, humidity, and low-level atmospheric turbulence." "The layer is very close to the surface is not known, because they are under-instrumented scientists, even if they are exactly where the energy exchange between the ocean and the atmosphere occurs, but scientists lack data because it is too dangerous for manned aircraft to fly at an altitude of only 10 -Surfaces above 50 meters.

"The North is able to measure very close-to-board radar due to its surface, and can take a few hours of trajectory from the Atlantic Ocean to the surface of less than 50 meters and the distance to the sea over 100 kilometers," the statement said. In order to meet the project goals, "North" carries custom sensors: "North" can carry nearly 25 kilograms of payload. BOREAL is also able to deal with terrain challenges, landing on the steep terrain in the east of the island.

Through the use of multiple drones for scientific research, the EUREC4A project also demonstrated the safety coordination of multiple aircraft: short-range drones, long-range fixed-wing drones, and manned aircraft, using satellite positioning and satellite positioning shared with all operators on the ground.

Flydragon FD180P fixed-wing VTOL for Artificial rainfall

In August of this year, the northern cities of China were affected by the drought, with little rainfall, and farmers’ crops were severely affected. Flying Dragon Aviation Technology Co., Ltd. adopts FD180P large vertical take-off and landing fixed-wing aircraft that can carry 18 artificial rainfall bombs to achieve artificial rainfall. A bumper grain harvest for farmers provides guarantee

Flydragon FD180P The UAV platform is a large-scale oil-powered long-haul composite wing vertical take-off and landing drone independently developed by our company. The overall layout of the composite wing with fixed wing and four-rotor is used to solve the fixed-wing UAV vertical in a simple and reliable way. The problem of take-off and landing, combined with the characteristics of fixed-wing UAV's longitude, high speed, long distance and the vertical take-off and landing of the rotorless drone, the vertical take-off and landing mode greatly enhances the environmental adaptability of the UAV platform. The UAV platform can smoothly operate in complex terrain and densely populated areas such as mountains, hills and jungles, greatly expanding the scope of application of drones, and is an ideal choice for industrial-grade drones.

The FD180P UAV platform is equipped with industrial-grade vertical take-off and landing fixed-wing flight control and strapdown inertial navigation system, as well as professional aerial aerial survey and inspection ground station software. It can ensure that the drone can fly autonomously and complete the autonomous takeoff without operator intervention. In the flight phase of flight state transition, autonomous cruise, and autonomous landing, it also supports automatic route planning for more than 1000 waypoints and emergency standby plan for 100 waypoints.

The drone platform has the following features and advantages:

a) Practical and efficient: it has the characteristics of fixed-wing UAV's long flight time, fast speed, long distance and large load;

b) Vertical take-off and landing: with the take-off and landing mode of the rotorless drone, greatly reducing the requirements for landing and landing and airspace;

c) low cost of use: no complicated and bulky launching and recycling equipment, no additional recycling sensors required;

d) Simple operation: integrated special flight control and navigation system, full autonomous flight, operators only need to send flight plans, no professional training and operational experience;
