Stardust II mapping at 4300m
More proof that sUAS can have a valuable civil use, GIS in the mining sector is popular. It fits dull, dirty and dangerous well. Juan Sainz tells sUAS News more.

“Last week, a Stardust II system owned by a customer flew at 4300m above sea level for Collahuasi mining company in the north of Chile. The performance was excellent, efficient and reliable. In the middle of the altiplanic winter, Stardust II covered over 2500 Acres for mapping using visual range and multispectral cameras.

Provide a system for mining industry is a priority for IDETEC Unmanned Systems and again we are demonstrating the benefits of sUAS Stardust II with great navigation accuracy and outstanding stable flight. The same unit used in this operation has been used for more than a year in different environments without incidents recorded.

Stardsut II has been developed to avoid the use of catapult and recovery parachutes, even above 4000 meters ASL. We are sure that Stardust II will continue flying in the north of Chile, one of the most difficult and challenging environment in the world to operate Unmanned Aerial Systems.”
