SENSYS MagDrone R1 magnetometer

Request a quote

The MagDrone R1 is an ultra portable magnetometer to be attached to any UAV with a minimum payload of 1kg.

Recommended applications:

  • Searching for UXO (UneXploded Ordnance)
  • Locating buried infrastructure (metal pipes and shielded cables) and power cables under the load
  • Archaeology
  • Surveying for any metal objects weighing a few hundred grams or heavier lying underground

Unique system design allows to fly with extremely low surface-to-sensor clearance starting from just couple of dozens of centimeters. If the sensor will touch the ground or obstacle/vegetation that will not lead to the drone crash. That capability is extremely important for searching for small UXO items over the fields with vegetation.

Self-foldable sensor mount allows easy take-off and landing without excess requirements for drone operator qualification as it is for magnetic sensors on suspension cords.

Note, that general rule with magnetometer when it is necessary to detect artificial objects or artefacts - fly as low as possible. Recommended altitude for the tasks like UXO search - 1m above surface or even lower. That means that drone should be equipped with terrain following system (included in recommended magnetometer bundle).

Recommended drones to carry MagDrone R1: DJI M350 RTK or DJI M300 RTK.
