DroneUA and ecology
Now the bulk of the company’s profit comes from the agricultural sector, but other areas are also actively developing.
One of the most important achievements of the company is reaching another level in the processing of satellite data, meteorological information, and laboratory research, which makes it possible to create many new tools and really influence climate change. First of all, we are talking about forest conservation and the DroneUA project, which was launched in 2016.
Guarding the forests of Ukraine
114 million is the approximate annual loss from illegal deforestation. Such deforestation can be prevented with the help of satellite monitoring and drones based on the Zemli.online project .
The detection of clearings is based on the processing of spectral data received from satellites or drones and the calculation of various vegetation indices, which determine the correspondence of the surface type for each coordinate or area of interest.
- Satellite monitoring of fellings every 5-7 days.
- UAV monitoring: daily or on demand.
- Notification within a few hours after receiving data, providing exact coordinates for prompt response.
- The ability to immediately record violations using drones: collecting data on the number of equipment used in illegal logging, down to vehicle license plates.
- System of prompt notifications by e-mail and SMS.
Based on the results of the meeting, it became clear that there is still a lot of work to achieve an optimal environmental situation in Ukraine, but there are already productive initiatives. The entire Drone.ua team is very happy to participate in the development of the environmental sphere, which concerns not only the population, business, but also the management apparatus.
