Winter UAV testing in Switzerland

publication date: February 20, 2018

Aerial wind turbine inspections can be conducted in different seasons and it is important to be prepared for it. Our engineers, Shapovalov Oleg and Filimonov Aleksey, carried out field testing of the software for our partner Helvetis in Switzerland in the end of January.

This time the tests were hold at snow-covered fields at minus temperature. It was necessary to make sure that equipment operates well and to test the new wireless UAV data link used by us first time. During the equipment debugging and wind turbine inspection simulations, the new link allowed to stream video and telemetry from the drone at a distance up to 5 km!
