UAV Concept Demonstration in Action
Jun 22, 2016
At the recent Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) 2016 conference in Brisbane, Nova Systems collaborated with APPEA to bring an exciting Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) concept demonstration.
The challenge was to ‘fly’ a UAV in the exhibition hall whilst streaming live video, whilst meeting safety, reliability and regulatory requirements. Nova Systems recognised the opportunity to give a team of work experience students a chance to solve this challenging problem whilst teaching them the critical systems engineering approach Nova takes.
Nova also reached out and partnered with local Australian industry experts in tracked systems (Lextar) and video distribution technologies (Immersaview).
The end result was a track and carriage system which spanned the entire width of the exhibition hall, a superb demonstration for APPEA.
