Manual laser test on the farm of EOLOARROZ

Tags : 

The ANGEL CAMACHO team continues with the manual laser tests on the farms. After the rainy period, and once all the rice was collected at the farm of EOLOARROZ and the rest of the farms in the vicinity of DOÑANA, new tests were carried out with species of birds associated with this ecosystem and that still remain around the area at this time of the year (herons, gulls, ibis, storks, etc.). The goal was to check the reaction of these animals when they were targeted with the laser in a different scenario: flooded farms without the rice crop and under low temperatures (8-10ºC).

IRIS performs the first flights at the facilities of Ángel Camacho (Seville)

Tags : 

During the first days of December IRIS started flights in Spain on the estates that the Angel Camacho Group has in Cuarterola and Cucanoche, both in Seville. It is in these estates where the Angel Camacho Group has installed two of its three autonomous lasers, on two towers of several meters high.

Despite the bad environmental conditions, IRIS was able to successfully complete the flights over the areas of influence of lasers, indicated by the technical team of Angel Camacho and CUDEMA.

Due to the poor state of the terrain, caused by the heavy rains, the IRIS and Ángel Camacho teams decided not to fly over Eoloarroz, the third farm where one of the autonomous lasers has been installed.

Notice boards for dissemination of Laser Fence

Tags : 

Volterra has designed the notice boards which are a valuable tool to disseminate information about the project to indirect stakeholders and the wider public.

At five of the six trial sites the partners have placed a notice board with a description of the project in Spanish and English. Additionally, two project partners have placed a smaller sized copy (A3) of the notice board at their office in their respective working languages.

A pdf version of the notice boards is available through our download section.

Below you can see the installation of notice boards at our partners´ facilities and trial sites.

IRIS visits Muñovela

Tags : 

On November 23rd and 24th, Santiago Martínez (IRIS Drone Specialists) visited the estate that the Institute of Natural Resources and Agrobiology of Salamanca (IRNASA) has established in Muñovela. This institute belongs to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and carries out multidisciplinary research for agricultural crops and their products, environmental conservation and livestock health.

The objective of the visit was to make the Laser Fence project known to the technicians who currently manage the farm as part of the dissemination actions of the project. After the meeting, a rapid trial was carried out with the drone and the thermographic camera, which was followed by several local farmers.
