I had time for a quick research project about using CIR(Near infrared) cameras, RGB cameras, and what those sensors can really provide for mapping vegetation. This article's purpose is to show the value of using Color Infrared (Near Infrared)…Continue
This month, 3DR’s Senior R&D Engineer Brandon Basso spoke about the critical role drone technology will play in environmental sustainability at an international conference at the University of Exeter, Penryn.
3DR was the only UAV company to present at the…Continue
We have been working for some time on a way to estimate and display important flight parameters such as angle of attack, estimated airspeed (on UAVs that do not have Pitot tubes), side slip angle or flight path vector (FPV) using a simple, robust dynamical model of the UAV and a computational method that is both fast and has computational time guarantees.…
The Distributed Sensing Systems Laboratory (DSS) is a research group with the systems subgroup of the Electrical Engineering department of King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Among our research activities, we are interested in the development of Lagrangian-based flash-flood sensing systems (and the associated control/estimation algorithms). We are…Continue
Good evening to All.
The fifteen plus years of my involvement with airmodelling, has sometimes brought me in strange paths, mysterious driveways, beautiful agony. The journey to Ithaca continues with great passion for research, construction, testing new technologies. In this journey I meet people who inspire me, support me, eventually becoming ... Friends…Continue
Follow up from my recent post :

For those who dont know ASPRS, is The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.
On their 2013 Annual conference call for abstracts, gladly they included Unmanned Aerial Vehicles!!
And here we go! After almost 3 years of…Continue
A couple months ago we announced the Aeromapper UAV: a versatile all-composite, low cost UAV mainly aimed for mapping applications, but also being used as a multipurpose UAV platform for its great versatility, performance and great internal volume for different payloads.
It is offered in 3 different options: as a kit, as a RTF with all the…
just sharing the latest video of the Aeromapper UAV platform in action.
Feel free to comment and share. Your comments and questions are always very appreciated!
Pretty soon we expect to finsh integration and testing of the APM2.0 on the airplane and will do photomapping non stop both for testing and work. Will share results and…Continue

We have been selling our AeroMapper UAV as a kit so far, and we are glad to announce our new Ready To Fly version is available now. Basically this is our second option which includes installed servos, motor and ESC, batteries, RC transmitter, and even battery charger.
We have our first batch…Continue
BACK IN THE RACE! for those considering UAV airframes for their aerial photography and photomapping applications we now have available the AeroMapper UAV. A high performance electric glider integrated with a UAV Payload Bay Module that offers great room and protection…Continue
