Methodological and technical aspects of gamma-spectrometry using Geoscan 401 Gamma UAV system

Gamma spectrometry (GS) has become one of the most important methods to address ore mapping and prospecting problems. GS is usually implemented in ground and aerial versions. In the first case, the area survey is performed over a long time, but it allows accumulating a larger number of pulses per point to reliably determine the specific activities (and concentrations) of uranium, thorium, potassium.

Given the pandemic environment, not every subsoil user is ready to organize large-scale on-the-ground geophysical works. This is due to both the uncertainty in the future cost of resources and the risk of disruption due to COVID-19. At the same time, we would like to cover large areas with surveys, so as to obtain the data and plan the works for the next field season. One solution is to apply geophysical survey methods using UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).

Story told by drones: how we organise light show in Yerevan

Yesterday, on the 21th of September, a big drone show took place in Armenia. From the formation to writing, from the state symbol to national hero — 1050 drones were telling a real story of the country emergence.

The show started with the drones forming an eagle, which is depicted on the coat of arms of Armenia. The bird, flapping its enormous wings, was welcomed with astonishment and received so thunderous ovation that music accompanying the show seemed muted. Then, at a distance sacred Mount Ararat, which is a symbol of Armenian nation, appeared.
