We are glad to share with our colleagues another interesting report from the UAE: the company United Vehicle Robotics (UVR), one of the string technologies developers, has demonstrated their fully autonomous helicopter-shaped cargo drones in the skies of Ras Al Khaimah. Workers of the project’s Sharjah branch of the project have been the first to evaluate the potential benefits of this unmanned aerial vehicle application during the construction and subsequent operation of string tracks in hard-to-reach plots.
UVR heavy-lift helicopter drones are capable of handling larger payloads and stay in the air for long flying times unlike other drones that can carry light payloads with reduced flight times only. An impressive payload capacity varying from 200 up to 2,000+ kg is deemed to be extra high among civil unmanned aircraft systems. The UAVs are resistant to harsh environments and travel with no dependence on roads and runways.
The application scope of UVR drones with the framework of string transport operations may cover:
- delivery of construction materials during the erection of string tracks in hard-to-reach plots (mountains, forests, wetlands, water barriers, etc.);
- optical surveillance and monitoring of the technical condition of track structure;
- emergency flights to identify and eliminate flaws and failures in track structure members;
- security of string transport infrastructure and technology.
The project’s administration is confident that the use of these drones can considerably enhance the efficiency of implementing string transport complexes, as well as optimize the cost of construction works especially during the erection of track structures, thus being ready to offer its high-quality, safe, and environmentally friendly transport complexes in the most inaccessible areas and under various adverse climatic conditions, guaranteeing partners not only quality but also reliable business relationships.
