Drones Used for Environmental and Wildlife Protection Accessible by Tablets

Professional micro civil drones from Lehmann Aviation are now available with a touchscreen tablet running under Windows8 Operating System. The new innovative software helps to immediately process all flight data on a touchscreen tablet, laptop, or desktop PC.

For more than 10 years, Lehmann Aviation has been developing a range of micro drones for civil applications such as mapping, mass media, security sector, oil and gas industry, construction, agriculture, and photography. The drones are also now widely used for the needs of the environmental sector: aerial monitoring of poaching, wild animals surveillance, forests inspection, and more.

Models LM450 and LP960 represent professional rugged unmanned aerial platforms designed for long-range missions with high-resolution oblique or vertical images and live video. LP960 is also designed for creating geo-referenced orthomosaics and digital elevation models (DEM) for diverse civil applications: mapping, forestry and agriculture, geosciences, mining, volume calculation, construction, and others. Both drones are equipped with an advanced autopilot and navigation systems enabling autonomous flights.

To prepare the drone for a flight, the user just has to draw on a touchscreen tablet the area of interest, enter the waypoints, and the Operation Center will automatically generate missions and program the drone.

The LM450 and the LP960 fly at speeds of 20 to 80 km/h, at a range of up to 5 km and in winds of up to 45 km/h in temperatures from -25° C to 60° C. The wingspan of the drones is 92 cm for a weight of around 1000g. The drones are launched by hand and land just few meters from the launching spot.
