Title Data Analysis for multi-band cameras for UAV-based atmospheric monitoring 
Description first level analysis tools created for on-the-fly analysis 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2022 
Impact This has led to multiple interactions with users of the software and these are developing into new potential collaborations, very often interdisciplinary outside the field of physics. The work relates to climate change and sustainable farming methods. 
Title Versatile multi-band cameras for UAV-based atmospheric monitoring 
Description A prototype was created, to TRL5. The camera is capable, and has been flown, on UAVs to look at spectral signatures of crops and other vegetation in several countries in Africa and Asia. 
Type Of Technology Physical Model/Kit 
Year Produced 2022 
Impact Further collaborations are now taking place with NGOs, charities and other UK and international funding bodies now that the method has been demonstrated. 
Description Online Materials for UK-Thai Knowledge Transfe 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
