[MTT35-01] Examination of drone operational stability for geoscientificresearch atLongyearbyen, Svalbard
Keywords:UAV, Svalbard, SfM-MVS
Based on the field work at Longyearbyen, Svalbard in the Arctic, we examined the limits of the operation of drones in polar regions from the viewpoint of GNSS environmental constraints, compass error, and weather conditions. Through hovering tests at Longyearbyen and Kashiwanoha in Japan, we measured the error of maintaining posture including the flight stability of drones, and examined whether a stable operation is possible or not. We also produced a manual to cope with various adverse conditions for drone flight in polar regions.
