SplashDrone 4 WQMS is the first-ever waterproof drone that can apply to water sampling and water quality measurement. It allows operators to quickly bring water samples from hard-to-access areas to the shore, and even land on the water for a on-the-spot water quality measurement. Compared with conventional methods, this new UAV water quality monitoring system improves safety, accuracy, and efficiency while reducing costs spent on equipment and reliance on field personnel.
How SplashDrone 4 WQMS collects water samples?
- Insert a water bottle into the sample collector, and then attach the collector to the bottom of the drone.
- Fly the drone to the target area and land the drone on the water as it is 100% waterproof.
- After the bottle is filled with water, fly the drone back to retrieve the sample bottle.
- Repeat the above steps if you need more samples or samples of multiple areas.
Benefits of Drone Water Sampling
Reduce Time by 75%
SplashDrone 4 WQMS drastically increases the mobility of the operation. In 1 minute, the drone can reach any location within 600 meters and proceed with water sample collecting. It significantly reduces the amount of time needed for the total operation.
Reduce Costs by 90%
When collecting water with SplashDrone 4 WQMS, you eliminate or reduce the need for a boat as well as maintenance and specialized training.
Using the Waypoint function, SplashDrone 4 WQMS can automatically navigate to a specific location based on the GPS coordinates you set on the App. After the drone arrives at the target location, you can land it on the water surface to collect water, and then fly it back to retrieve the water samples.
Repeatable Data Collection
With the drone's Route Saved feature, operators can save the sampling location and quickly re-access the exact location for the next operation, allowing for a repeatable, consistent water sampling data collection.
Risk-free Drone Operation
No need to worry about water getting in the drone like every other drone on the market. SplashDrone 4 WQMS offers a complete waterproof UAV solution with its IP67 waterproof rating. You can land the drone on the water let alone the splash or rain. SplashDrone 4 provides you with the capability for a continuous, risk-free solution in any harsh environment.
Risk-free Human Operation
SplashDrone 4 WQMS eliminates the need for operators to travel over the water surface or enter hazardous areas. Hence, reduce any possible risk for human on-water operation.
On-site Drone Water Quality Monitoring
Instead of bring samples back to the lab, you can monitor the water quality right on the spot with the drone. When integrated with a set of water quality sensors, SplashDrone 4 WQMS can immediately upload real-time water data to a cloud server where a few basic assessments will be conducted. The water quality information with corresponding GPS coordinates can be saved on the server for a later more comprehensive reassessment.
