Testing of small snow radar for UAVs

In the framework of AgroNTI experimental zone, BOZON AERO together with Belgorod State Agricultural University conducted a successful testing of a prototype of small radar for non-contact measurement of snow.

Drones and UAVs equipped with such small radars will be able to map snow profiles on agricultural fields to assess snow thickness and water content in snow during the preseason.

Control test with the traditional contact method using snow tubes has confirmed the accuracy of data obtained with the non-contact radar method.

The information on water content in the snow covering the field is an important factor enabling early assessment of potential yield in the coming season and better planning of agricultural activities.
