The future of sUAS in environmental and agricultural remote sensing
Researchers at Kansas State University are making significant progress in the development of sUAS applications in the areas of agriculture and environmental assessment. Kansas State University aims to increase its leadership role in these rapidly expanding areas of sUAS applications by building on the successes achieved to date, based on multidisciplinary collaboration between researchers at K-State and beyond.
Our goals are to facilitate multidisciplinary research collaboration within the following areas of sUAS applications:
- Crop production
- Livestock production
- Environmental assessment
Heading to Brazil
Dr. Van der Merwe will travel to Sao Mateus, Brazil to work with Dr. Marcelo Barreto on the identification of coffee diseases at the Unversidade Federal Do Espirito Santo. We look forward to the start of a long and fruitful relationship with our colleagues in Brazil. To make travel as easy as possible, a lightweight 3DR Iris+, combined with a Multispek GoPro with a unique NDVI filter, will be used.
