Dutch drone first to map pristine national park in half a century
ATMOS UAV, a start-up company from the faculty of Aerospace Engineering, announced on 31 January that their drone Marlyn was used to chart the tropical island of Silhouette in the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. Local cartographer TFC International uses the data to get a better view on the local ecosystem and ultimately to be able to protect endangered animals and plants. The company selected drone Marlyn because of its unique characteristics: Marlyn can take off and land vertically under windy conditions with a high flight autonomy.
