Dave Scott (BSc, BScH, MSc) first got involved with unmanned aerial systems during his MSc research in the field of geomorphology. The topic of his research based dissertation is "On active layer processes and landforms in Western Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica". Due to the nature of the research being in such a unique and remote area of the world it soon became obvious that a system was needed in order to collect valuable aerial data which could then be analysed back in South Africa.
With the help of an RPA expert, they designed and built an autonomous multirotor which could withstand the harsh temperatures and conditions of Antarctica. The system was able to collect high quality photographs for the 2-dimensional and 3-dimentional reconstruction of the areas of interest. This allowed for the post-field work desktop analysis of the land and proved to be an indisputably beneficial tool in the aid of this scientific research.
Since completing his Masters dissertation, Dave Scott has dedicated all of his time into designing, building and utilizing UAVs to create aerial images and 3-dimentional models. One of the key studies relating to past interests was in modelling of wetland systems in order to create better management and rehabilitation strategies.
