Pilot and UAV also Available

The MagDrone R3 is a portable magnetometer survey kit to be attachable to any UAV / drone with a minimum payload of 1kg.

The kit consists of an ultra light weight sensor tube with two built-in 3-axis Fluxgates, a 1-button data logger with internal SD card, rechargeable batteries and an integrated GPS. It is made and optimized for small and mid size survey UAVs / drones that are shaped for less payload and longer flight times.

Depending on capabilities of the UAV / drone in terms of maneuverability and GPS precision, the MagDrone R3 survey kit can be used for general purpose surveys, science related magnetic cartographies, exploration studies on hidden minerals, as well as for safety relevant operations. Those can include area scanning for bombs and ammunition, as well as preventive surveillance of areas and camps against intrusion.

The frame ensures an easy attachment to any kind of UAV / drone by screwing, strapping or bonding both together.
