U.K. Companies Develop RFID System For Drone/UAV Use

Device Created By Drone Tech Aerospace And Atkins Can Be Added To Existing Aircraft

A new RFID system has been developed by Drone Tech Aerospace, in partnership with Atkins, that can be added onto an existing UAV or drone to deliver real-time data feedback to engineers on the ground.

The new technology was recently tested in a trial for Highways England and Connect Plus beneath a live viaduct on London's M25. Drone Tech Aerospace collaborated with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to obtain all necessary authorization to fly within proximity of a live viaduct. According to the team at Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd., the trial went exceedingly well.

"...The results were fantastic. The data from the trial is to be analysed before any further implementations are carried out," said the Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd. Team.

RFID, or radio-frequency identification, leverages electromagnetic fields to identify and trace tags attached to objects. The trials conducted by Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd. were the first RFID trials using drones in the United Kingdom.

Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd. offers comprehensive aerial services, including robotic design and development, agricultural, photography, and survey solutions.

The data from the recent trial is currently being analyzed and will be used in the development of the new aerial RFID technology.
