Unmanned Aerial Systems Orientation and Workshop

The Forest Geospatial Data Infrastructure Section under the Forest Policy, Planning and Knowledge Management Division is conducting an Orientation and Workshop on the Unmanned Aerial Systems on April 10 to 14, 2018 in Quezon City. The workshop covers introduction to UAS and its sub-systems, CAAP regulations and Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) controller certification, operations, mission planning, UAV operations, data acquisition and deployment, UAV ground school, introduction to simulation, and simulation exercises (approaching and landing).

Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) involve the use of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), commonly known as “Drone”. With proper sensors on board, UAVs are capable of capturing high-resolution digital images and videos ideal for acquisition of high accuracy data for assessment, surveillance and mapping of large areas with limited accessibility due to rough terrain and security issues.

In the forestry sector, the UAV will be used for the assessment and monitoring of sites for the National greening Program (NGP) and various tenure instruments such as the Community Based Forest Management Agreement (CBFMA) and Integrated Forest Management Agreement (IFMA).
