Forest Lake required analysis only possible via drone-based remote sensing. An innovative combination of visual and near-visual remote sensing was designed & implemented for analyzing key Limnology metrics for determining overall lake health and possible root causes of recent problems.
NA Robotics was able to deliver end-to-end drone engineering, flights, remote sensing, data collection, data analysis, with findings & recommendations in a cost-effective, easy-to-task manner.
The Mdewakanton Sioux Community operate a visionary, forward-thinking recycling operation.
NA Robotics was invited to devise & execute a regular aerial imaging analysis program.
Custom-made drones (both fixed-wing and rotary wing) were created for automated regular flights over the ORF, performing both visual and near-visual (near-IR and UV) imaging analysison on a scheduled repeatable basis. The data (3-D terrain maps with sensor imaging superimposed over it) enabled Mdewakanton field scientists to better understand and evolve their recycling environment.
Large, complex, expensive-to-operate ocean-going surface and underwater Autonomous Vehicles are commonplace these days, but scaled-down, affordable surface and underwater Autonomous Vehicles suitable for applications mapping & studying fresh water lakes & rivers are difficult to find.
NA Robotics has developed the Nibbanabbe (Chippewa for "water spirit") - an innovative surface-operated Autonomous Vehicle which can enable state, county and even municipal government to affordably map, study and monitor their freshwater lakes and rivers affordably.
