Precision and accuracy of Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) positioning with SBAS, SBAS DFMC and PPP - Application in Precision Agriculture: Project Demonstrator 8103 (2018)$119,296
Description
This project focuses on the application of SBAS, SBAS DFMC and PPP services for the precise positioning of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and direct georeferencing of sensor data in precision agriculture applications. The UAS industry is growing rapidly with the agricultural sector being one of the fastest growing sectors adopting UAS technology. Multispectral imaging from UAS can provide new insights into fine-scale spatial variability of crop health. This information can be used by farmers and farm managers to improve efficiencies in application of water, fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides, and other inputs. This project will integrate SBAS GNSS hardware in a UAS configuration typically used in farm environments, namely a small multi-rotor UAS (<15 kg) with multispectral imaging capabilities. The project will assess the performance of SBAS GNSS positioning for typical UAS flight dynamics and will characterise the levels of noise in the GNSS solution. We will quantify the accuracy of direct georeferencing of a multispectral orthomosaic based on on-board SBAS GNSS data. The intended outcome is a low-cost and efficient positioning solution for UAS-based surveys producing ultra-high resolution imagery at high absolute accuracy with direct benefits in precision agriculture and to on-farm efficiencies.

Barwon Heads cliff monitoring experiment (2014)$1,791
Description
The aim of this project is to evaluate the feasibility of using stereogrammetry software to reconstruct and model a cliff face. Data will be analysed and a strategy will be developed to test the long-term viability of using this software. The project will be evaluated by sharing research data during a field visit and through quality controlled publication of the outcomes.
