UAV SYSTEMS & Software
Recon operates C-Astral UAVs for aerial mapping, providing local expertise, training and support. Manufactured from aerospace-certified kevlar, vectran, carbon composites and honeycomb structure. The performance, style and form, includes advanced aerodynamics, a blended wing body design with large payload capacity and the highest aerodynamic efficiency and long endurance for better productivity. Unrivalled, accurate remote sensing - made possible through precision optics and multiple sensor options with INS data logging which enables a fast, seamless and software agnostic processing chain.
New Zealand Steel has been utilising Recon’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) mapping technology to accurately measure stockpile volumes on a regular basis at its Waikato North Head mine site. The technology has resulted in faster data acquisition turn-around times, as well as the elimination of survey staff from within potentially hazardous environments at the mines.
