TOMSK, Aug 31 –
RIA Tomsk. Scientists of Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (TUSUR) are testing a high-precision orientation
system for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which will allow for the search and
exploration of solid mineral deposits, the university's press service reported
of TUSUR created a prototype of a small-sized high-precision UAV navigation
system with the ability to measure at different altitudes. Classic altimeters
measure only the height to the nearest obstacle. However, this is not enough
for high-precision unmanned geophysical survey of the terrain.
innovative method of measurements at different heights will allow to implement
a new tomographic approach to the processing of the obtained data with
high-precision determination of the location of diamond pipes, iron ore
deposits, accumulations of polymetallic ores and valuable minerals in the
depths of the earth. There are no analogues of such systems in the world",
– the message said.
team solved such problems as the creation of a miniature navigation system and
a radio altimeter capable of simultaneously determining two heights with
recording of measurements in real time.

system is fully ready. It is a compact device that operates in differential
mode, that is, it determines coordinates relative to the reference base
station. The navigation module is responsible for determining coordinates and
exact position in space with an accuracy of half a meter and above.
According to the
university, by the end of 2020, the improved prototype will be handed over to
the customer for flight tests. The creation of a new orientation system for
UAVs is carried out by specialists from the Research Institute of Radio
Engineering Systems of TUSUR within the framework of the
"Aerotomography" Russian project, which is being implemented on the
basis of Novosibirsk State University in cooperation with the Institute of
Petroleum Geology and Geophysics of the SB RAS.
