R I V E R 🌾 We’re continuing with gathering knowledge pertaining to these water sources. Making fun otter artwork and a river with fish. We decided to continue with numerical recognition by incorporating rocks into a great visual. It’s all about appreciating our natural resources and respecting the inhabitants within it - birds, amphibians, reptiles, insects, and so on.
Today, as part of FAA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Pilot Program (IPP), the Noble Research Institute and it’s Applied Technology Team joined up with the Choctaw Nation at their Daisy Ranch to demonstrate how drones can be used for agricultural applications. Monday and Tuesday nights were used to fly wildlife surveys using thermal forward looking infrared systems. Today, a drone designed for carrying payloads delivered 10 pounds of corn to bait BoarBuster trap for wild pigs.
The UAS IPP is designed to foster innovation and advance the safe integration of drones into our nation’s airspace and to ensure U.S. global leadership in the emerging UAS industry.
There are many other applications that will be tested over the next 2.5 years, so stay tuned for more updates as we explore the novelty of drones for agriculture and natural resources. Pay close attention to photo #2 because you can actually see the corn in the delivery system.
