It’s that time of year again… The UAS Student Competition scenario is out! That means getting some new recruits and doing some major brainstorming for this year’s UAVs!
“The use of UAS for wildlife monitoring is becoming commonplace particularly in Canada’s vast remote landscape. This year’s real life scenario will do just that. Each team is a “company” hired to use their UAS in support of wildlife research personnel. They will be asked to locate and census nests of three different types of geese in the remote Canadian wilderness. In addition, nesting samples are required to test for pesticides in the environment by retrieving eggs from the nests of birds under study. A written report on the findings is also submitted to the judges.”
