On 20-21 June 2018, an employee of the Institute of Aviation – Hubert Skoneczny represented the HESOFF project and Remote Sensing Division at the International Fair of Inventions and Innovation INTARG 2018, which took place at the International Congress Center in Katowice.
INTARG is a tool for the promotion of innovative solutions, products, technologies and services from various areas, for their transfer to industry and commercialization, as well as provides a platform for direct contact between science and business representatives and entities supporting and financing research and development.
Hubert Skoneczny, from the Remote Sensing Division, presented the invention “QUERCUS.2 – lightweight, multispectral platform adapted for integration with Unmanned Aerial Vehicle”, which was awarded a bronze medal in the category “environment/chemistry/biotechnology/nanotechnology”.
QUERCUS.2 multispectral platform was built in the Institute of Aviation, at the Remote Sensing Division in 2013. The platform operates within 2 spectral channels, has the ability to record data in the wavelength range 460 – 950 nm (depending on the filters used) and is intended for the remote acquisition of images based on the registration of electromagnetic radiation. The QUERCUS.2 lightweight platform (mass without a battery – 820 g) is dedicated to integration with the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), and the use of two cameras and an algorithm, controlling the work of sensors, allows simultaneous images acquisition in two different wavelengths of light and performance, in real time, analysis of these images. QUERCUS.2 was created for the LIFE HESOFF project to perform imaging of research areas – forests of three Forest Districts in the Krotoszyńska plate (woj. wielkopolskie). The acquired material was used during the implementation of one of the main tasks of the HESOFF project – health evaluation of oak stands in regards of the assessment of phosphines influence.
Moreover, Michał Pakosz from the Department of Space Technologies presented “Rocket ILR-33 “Amber” as a system of inventions and an innovative platform for experimental research in conditions of reduced gravity”, which in the “industry” category, was awarded a platinum medal.
