Overhead Intelligence and Iris Automation avionics enable EVLOS-BVLOS drone surveys
Aerial geophysical mapping specialist Overhead Intelligence has used a drone equipped with Iris Automation safety avionics tech to operate a combined extended visual line of sight (EVLOS) and beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) magnetometer survey mission over a wide area of Canadian mineral deposits.
The large project in Canada’s Newfoundland and Labrador aims to complete a magnetometer survey of the province’s vast mineral deposits, requiring accurate data collection and processing over an enormous expanse of land. Covering that range involves Overhead Intelligence operating drones in EVLOS and BVLOS missions, using Iris Automation’s Casia I safety avionics to ensure secure, collision-free aerial operation.
Florida-based Overhead Intelligence also turned to Iris Automation to navigate the process for obtaining Transport Canada’s Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) required for EVLOS and BVLOS drone flights – which in this case cover…
