Moscow to patrol forests with UAVs
Moscow, June 23 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Moscow's Forest and Environment Protection Department will use unmanned air vehicles (UAV) systems to patrol the forested areas in the city boundaries, according to a spokesman.
"Moscow will use UAVs for patrolling the forests and detecting fires in the forest belt around the city," the spokesman said.
The department will use the small day-night capable ZALA421 - 04M system, which has a wing span of just 1.6 metres, weighing just 4.8 kg and can fly for 90 minutes.
"The system uses videocamera or photo imagery. The system also uses a mobile ground station and two UAVs," he said.
Navigation for the UAVs uses Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. The UAVs have a top speed of 42 miles per hour, which is optimal for high image quality, he added.
The aircraft use electric motors and are eco-friendly, he said.
