By Eric Van Rees - 17th March 2023 - 10:04

UAVOS, a developer and manufacturer of security and commercial solutions based on advanced Unmanned Systems, has recently completed a drone-based inspection in the agriculture sector to measure water content in soil.

Combining digital data and UAVOS's customized software has allowed to provide innovative analysis for water management in agriculture and land management. UAVOS's inspection technology offers timely and accurate insights into the dynamics of soil drainage and moisture content which is able to contribute to productivity of land.

UAVOS’s UAS solution for gathering such soil moisture data is based around its fixed-wing Borey uncrewed aerial system (UAS), and features a multispectral sensor payload designed to provide both spatial and temporal resolution for better understanding of the soil moisture levels. The Borey UAS with a multispectral camera supplies full coverage soil moisture measurements over an area of up to 2,220 acres (9 km²) per flight. The flights have been conducted at low altitude missions of 150 m above ground level. This low altitude is required for the sensor to accurately map soil moisture up to 10 cm/pixel resolution.
