Khabarovsk Territory to acquire drones for monitoring forest fires

Governor Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport decided to purchase drones to monitor forest fires, the press service of the Khabarovsk Territory reports. “Now the flying hour of a helicopter used to search for fires in the taiga costs about 150 thousand rubles., - explained the head of the regional forestry department Ivan Denisov. - Thus, one flight costs the budget almost half a million, which are mainly spent on fuel. The drone flies using the energy of the batteries. If you add operator fees here, the savings become obvious. "

At one of the military airfields in the suburbs of Khabarovsk, the SupercamS350 aircraft, the Russian innovation of the group of companies "Unmanned Systems" from Izhevsk, was tested. UAV is able to fly more than 4 hours at an altitude of 5 thousand meters, which allows you to explore the territory of a radius of up to 70 km. Using high-resolution video cameras, the device sends an image to the monitor, where you can see even the smallest details, for example, the number of the car. Representatives of the forest guard immediately assessed the capabilities of the vehicle: drones can be used to combat illegal logging, as well as when drawing up plans for cadastral registration and land surveying.

To begin with, the governor will instruct to buy a pair of such unmanned vehicles, and only after practical application will make a decision on additional purchase. Izhevsk drones can be used in the south of the region - in the area. Lazo, as well as Bikinsky and Viazemsky areas, where the greatest number of fires occur.
