An unmanned aircraft that is controlled from a distance. Aircraft system with remote control (RPAS). A remotely piloted aircraft, the remote pilot station(s) it is/are associated with, the necessary command and control links, and any other elements as defined in the type design.
The Global Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS)-Based Wildlife Detection.Effective observations and quantitative monitoring of wild animals are crucial in wildlife biology.
Conventional wildlife monitoring mostly relies on in-person observations made with the naked eye or with binoculars in fixed locations, on-site image acquisition, and sampling or capture carried out within severely constrained areas.
In recent years, remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS), also known as drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), have been used successfully to detect wildlife using imaging sensors, such as RGB and thermal-imaging sensors, with detection capabilities that are superior to those of human observation.
Examined RPAS studies, which have been employed more and more for wildlife detection, and describe how a high-resolution RGB image based on RPAS can be used for studies on wild animals from the viewpoints of individual detection, population surveys, as well as behavioural investigations.
With additional data derived from image analysis, the usefulness of thermal imaging sensors was further evaluated.
Furthermore, RPAS-based case studies of the acquisition of high-resolution RGB images for the purpose of spotting southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) and the extraction of shape properties using a thermal imaging sensor in King George Island, maritime Antarctica, are presented as applications in an extreme environment.
An efficient and helpful technique for both the visual interpretation and quantitative analysis of wild animals in inaccessible extreme or maritime environments is the small, affordable RPAS, which can operate with great flexibility, mount miniature imaging sensors, and be easily manoeuvred even from an inflatable boat.
