Israeli Research Center To Use Spanish Unmanned Helicopters

Two Sniper Helicopters Acquired For Agricultural Research

Israel’s Volcani Center has acquired two Sniper Helicopter unmanned aircraft from Spain’s Alpha Unmanned Systems to use for agricultural research.

The Sniper vehicles have a flight time of up to two hours and are reliable, two reasons Volcani selected them, according to Alpha Unmanned Systems. The vehicles can carry a 5.5-pound payload and have a range of up to 18.6 miles.
 
“Alpha’s products enable us to extend our research within budget and extend agricultural investigation using the latest UAV and imaging technology available,” the Volcani Center’s Victor Alchantis said in a press release.
 
The center is the research arm of the Israeli Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and supports work in plant and animal sciences, plant protection, soil and environmental research, food sciences, and other areas.
 
“Agricultural use represents the greatest growth opportunity for UAV technologies worldwide and in the mid and long term,” said Eric Freeman, CEO of Alpha Unmanned Systems.
