MagDrone R3 magnetometer

Partener Greenpeace

The MagDrone R3 is a portable magnetometer survey kit to be attachable to any UAV / drone with a minimum payload of 1kg.

The kit consists of an ultra light weight sensor tube with two built-in 3-axis Fluxgates, a 1-button data logger with internal SD card, rechargeable batteries and an integrated GPS. It is made and optimized for small and mid size survey UAVs / drones that are shaped for less payload and longer flight times.

Depending on capabilities of the UAV / drone in terms of maneuverability and GPS precision, the MagDrone R3 survey kit can be used for general purpose surveys, science related magnetic cartographies, mine exploration, as well as for safety relevant operations. Those can include area scanning for bombs and ammunition, preventive check and surveillance of areas and camps against intrusion.

The frame ensures an easy attachment to any kind of UAV / drone by screwing, strapping or bonding both together.

The data logger is continuously recording while in air. Afterwards the data can be downloaded to any Windows® computer to further process the measurement values i.e. using the SENSYS software MAGNETO®, GIS tools or Matlab for own scripting.

Features

  • System with two sensors attachable to any drone
  • Data logging on internal SD card
  • Power concept with function for data loss prevention
  • 200 Hz sampling rate
  • Measurement data time stamped
  • Internal GPS module

Applications

  • Surveying from distance, at slopes or avalanches
  • Mine exploration / tracking / monitoring at flexible heights
  • Detection on unreachable, flooded or mined areas
  • Surveillance of areas and equipment against intrusion or thievery

Advantages of FAE Drones

  • high flight time (double compared to competition)
  • high payload - 5 kg operational, 10 kg max
  • preserves altitude versus flight (AGL) in topographical applications
  • automatically divides large areas into multiple short flights
  • 24 MPx image quality with Prime APSC sensor lens (25.1mm x 16.7)
  • head hold - Direction of the camera to the same direction
