ONERA’s BOREAL drones take off in Greece as part of the European FOLDOUT project

Last June, a team of BOREAL pilots traveled to Bulgaria alongside ONERA engineers to take part in a demonstration as part of the European FOLDOUT project.

A BOREAL team went to Greece at the end of July with a use case identical to the first mission . The objective of ONERA’s optical department is to experiment with a system for monitoring cross-border activities under plant cover or at the edge of the forest . A 3D LiDAR imager and a hyperspectral camera were embedded on ONERA’s BOREAL drones. This work was carried out within the framework of the European project FOLDOUT ( https://foldout.eu ).

Despite difficult environmental conditions linked to the strong summer heat, the experiment went well.
