UAVOS Utilizes Borey Fixed-Wing Drone for Accurate Soil Moisture Mapping

UAVOS, a developer and manufacturer of advanced unmanned systems for security and commercial applications, has successfully conducted a drone-based inspection in the agriculture sector to measure soil moisture content. The use of UAVOS’s customized software and digital data has enabled innovative analysis for water management in agriculture and land management. The inspection technology offered by UAVOS provides timely and accurate insights into soil drainage and moisture content dynamics, which can contribute to enhancing land productivity.

UAVOS’s UAS solution for gathering soil moisture data utilizes its fixed-wing Borey uncrewed aerial system (UAS), featuring a multispectral sensor payload that offers spatial and temporal resolution for better understanding of soil moisture levels. The Borey UAS can measure soil moisture over an area of up to 2,220 acres (9 km²) per flight at low altitude missions of 150 m above ground level. This altitude is necessary for the sensor to accurately map soil moisture with up to 10 cm/pixel resolution.

The multispectral camera-equipped Borey UAS provides data for the entire scanned area, not just representative samples. After the drone inspection, UAVOS’s mapping professionals provide clients with a comprehensive report, including high-definition images and video, orthomosaic images for GIS import, digital surface model (DSM), digital terrain model (DTM), and 3D images for future crop plantation planning and monitoring.

Aliaksei Stratsilatau, CEO at UAVOS, said, “Monitoring soil composition and conditions is important for modern farming practices. With multispectral soil quality maps of their fields, farmers can make more informed decisions about where to plant which crops and when to make adjustments. The result is bigger, healthier yields with more sustainable land management practices.”
