Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd. and Atkins Ltd. Develop RFID System for Drone/UAV Use

CARDIFF, Wales, April 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

New technology provides real-time data feedback, recent trial data being analyzed for the system's development 

Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd., in partnership with Atkins Ltd., have developed a new RFID system that can be added onto an existing UAV or drone to deliver real-time data feedback to engineers on the ground.

The new technology was recently tested in a trial for Highways England and Connect Plus beneath a live viaduct on London's M25. Drone Tech Aerospace collaborated with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to obtain all necessary authorization to fly within proximity of a live viaduct. According to the team at Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd., the trial went exceedingly well

"...The results were fantastic. The data from the trial is to be analysed before any further implementations are carried out," said the Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd. Team.

RFID, or radio-frequency identification, leverages electromagnetic fields to identify and trace tags attached to objects. The trials conducted by Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd. were the first RFID trials using drones in the United Kingdom.

Drone Tech Aerospace Ltd. offers comprehensive aerial services, including robotic design and development, agricultural, photography, and survey solutions.

The data from the recent trial is currently being analyzed and will be used in the development of the new aerial RFID technology. More information can be found at
