Unmanned aerial system - new vector control technology
Tuesday, July 30, 2019
‘Global Vector Control Response 2017 – 2030’ released by WHO (2017) establishes new guidelines which aim to reduce the burden and threat of vector-borne diseases through effective locally adapted sustainable vector control. New technologies in formulations and applications have provided us with advanced tools for designing effective vector control programs worldwide.
The PrecisionVision® unmanned aircraft system (UAS), developed by Leading Edge Aerial Technologies is designed specifically for the aerial application of both liquid and granular products as well as Ultra Low Volume (ULV) adulticide applications.
Jing Zhai1, Bill Reynolds2 and Ming Hua Huang1 recently convened on an article for International Pest Control magazine that reviewed use of the PrecisionVision® for an Adulticiding Trial using sUAS - you can access the article here:
