ECA Group has demonstrated the capabilities of its IT180 UAS to support AREVA’s mining and power activities, the company said on 13 December.

AREVA is seeking an environmental monitoring site survey solution to complement its existing monitoring solution portfolio.

The IT180 was deployed at AREVA’s pilot test site to allow the company to evaluate the operational performance of the UAS and the quality of its data collection. The UAS was flown over a large area in fully automated mode following a pre-defined grid flight plan. The UAS was configured with a gamma probe sensor to collect radiological signal intensity in order to detect surface radioactivity.

The IT180 UAS has a flight endurance of two hours, and is designed to perform a range of missions in civilian and military sectors such as surveillance, site protection, inspection, pollution control, fire-fighting and search and rescue.
