Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) teams in NSW are using revolutionary drone technology to help spot and clear remnants of flood debris in sugar cane fields across the rivers of the North. The region’s Minister of Emergency Services and Resilience and Minister of Flood Recovery noted that drones, known as Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), are contributing significantly to disaster relief efforts. cleaning and recovery in progress.

Two teams of drone operators from FRNSW’s Bushfire and Aviation Unit are working in rivers in the North to identify and map the location of hazardous debris. The FRNSW deputy commissioner said this is the first time the drones, purchased with funding in response to the Black Summer bushfires, have been used in the flood recovery effort.

Teams conduct reconnaissance flights using smaller drones and once hazardous or large waste is identified, larger RPAS, which can determine the size and location of the debris, are dispatched. Once the data has been processed, QR codes can be sent to cane growers. This provides them with real-time maps of their properties, identifying where obstacles are. Growers can then remove the debris with the help of Resilience NSW and the Environment Protection Authority.

The flooding in February and March had such a devastating and widespread impact, including for many sugar cane farmers who four months later still find debris strewn across their fields, the Minister of Services said. NSW Emergency and Resilience and Minister for Flood Recovery.

She noted that items such as refrigerators, washing machines, gas cylinders, shipping containers and even a swimming pool were found in the sugar cane fields across the northern rivers. This type of debris could damage farm equipment like harvesters and risk ruining harvest season operations, which is the last thing our growers need after being hit by flooding.

Although the waters may have receded months ago, the recovery effort continues and the NSW government is committed to using whatever means necessary to help communities affected by the flooding of the rivers. North to rebound, added the Minister.

All over the world, the demand for drone services in the world continues to increase. This can be attributed to the wide range of benefits that drones offer across different industry verticals. The application of drone services in the agricultural sector helps farmers to optimize the use of seeds, fertilizers, water and the rest of others, to eliminate weeds, pests and fungi by taking the right measurements, to save time on crop identification, to improve variable rate prescriptions in real time and to estimate the yield of a field. The use of drones in agriculture also helps in the precision spraying of fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, pesticides, seeds, and desiccants.

Also, drone services provide inspection and surveillance services and hence the demand for drone services is increasing in military and defense, construction and infrastructure, transportation, logistics and infrastructure. storage, among others. In military and defense, drone services offer potential benefits such as counterterrorism, border security, counterinsurgency, and crime control.

These help detect threats and identify risky areas from a remote location, conduct reconnaissance missions and track illegal activities without risking lives, conduct surveillance and gather actionable intelligence . With high quality cameras, sensors and other components, drones deliver high quality data to end users. Drones can capture high quality images for inspection and other operations.
