The RD350 Keeper performs a forest inventory of up to 500 hectares per day and processing is carried out automatically during the night. Only two operators are necessary for the execution of the flights. Processing is not assisted. The most common products are maps and localized values for tree height, DBH, volume, dominant tree heights and basal area. Technical details are in the September 2020 ABTCP publication: Moreira, L. F.; Hernandez-Figueroa, H. E.; Frias, E.; “Drone-Borne Radar for Forest Inventory”. ABTCP 2020, São Paulo, Brazil, 2020.
