Palencia mountain visit with lasers

On April 17, Nacho and Luis de Volterra took advantage of one of their trips to the Palencia mountain to perform another test with the hand laser. Specifically, they toured the Valley of Pineda, (municipal district of Cervera de Pisuerga). The sighting of roe deer in the area is common and therefore it was considered interesting to make a test in that place.

Additionally, some people in the area have commented that a small bear has been sighted in the last few days and this prevented IRIS from being able to deploy the drone. The bear is a protected species and is currently in breeding season. For this reason, precautions were taken with the intention of having no influence at all. However, after several hours of walking in the area, no large mammal was sighted. In the next few days, they will repeat the visit to try to get some positive results.

SCM at Moron de la frontera

Tags : 

On 2oth of March, the consortium met at the Cuarterola facilities in the El Fontanal farm (Moron de la frontera) for the Steering Committee Meeting. Discussions regarding the last improvements in the laser technology and the most recent trials were carried out in order to evaluate the best strategy for the project development. Another very important topic discussed during the meeting were the foreseen replication activities, where the laser will be tested with different animals in different environments.
