ISTU surveyors made presentations at international science fair - congress "Interexpo GEO-Siberia 2013" (Novosibirsk) in the directions of geodesy and information support of environmental management and sustainable development of the territories.
The team of ISTU surveyors received the diploma for the development of technology of surveying and geodetic work by the means of airborne laser scanning with the use of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) at the International Scientific Exhibition - Congress "Interexpo GEO-Siberia 2013" in Novosibirsk.
According to the postgraduate student of the subdepartment of Surveying and Geodesy, Veronika Valdman, the ISTU representatives were awarded with diploma on the basis of the "Gold Medal Interexpo GEO-Siberia 2013" in the category "Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Specialized instrumentation. "
In addition, ISTU surveyors demonstrated their new big stand and six solo booths at the international science fair-congress.
According to her, the project "GEO-Siberia", created by the Siberian State Academy of Geodesy in 2005 with the support of the Association of German surveyors, is the most modern technology in geo-industry in Russia. "Interexpo GEO-Siberia" has an international status. The exhibition was attended by leading Russian and foreign specialists who make scientific reports, conduct training sessions, poster presentations, workshops, demonstrations of instruments and equipment, including ones in the open area. For example, this year, the biggest scientific delegation arrived from Germany, so the official language of the awards ceremony was German. The second largest team was the representatives of the Czech Republic and Mongolia.
It was earlier reported that an unmanned helicopter with a laser scanning system, the cosy of which is 15 million rubles, went to the disposal of the subdepartment of Surveying and Geodesy at ISTU thanks to a program of the National Research University (NRU). Being armed with such technology of a high level, the subdepartment may use the helicopter in the educational process and conduct engineering and land surveys for any customers.
The advantages of UAV are low fuel consumption (the device flies on A-95, and if necessary, it can be refueled at any gas station), undemanding to weather conditions and the ability to survey at an altitude of 500 meters and below. The subdepartment acquired a special vehicle for transportation of unmanned aircraft, which will act as a command post. Because the technique requires professional service, surveyors are ready to provide customers with the operator of helicopter.
