The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF-IFAS) Citrus Research and Education Center is experimenting with a six-band camera mounted on an SUAV for research on citrus disease and stress detection using high-resolution, low-altitude, multi-band aerial imaging.
SUAVs can be used on a large number of these farms because SUAVs are relatively inexpensive and very easy for growers to operate.
The brigade commander's TUAV will transmit imagery to other platforms on the FCS network, and the SUAV will be an organic component of the FCS.
Objective Forces will include the Brigade TUAV, objective Division TUAV, SUAV, and potentially the objective Corps TUAV.
The Raven SUAV can also hand over target information to larger UAVs, such as the Army's Shadow or Hunter UAVs which are typically controlled at higher echelons.
For example, an infantry battalion can use its Raven SUAV as its Counter-Mortar Quick Reaction Force.
Program Manager Greg Davis added, "We are proud to continue our excellent working relationship with the Canadian Forces and to help further develop their expertise in unmanned aircraft systems.
