Drone technologies in shrimp farms

Aiprox systems, with autonomous drones and drone-in-a-box platforms, for automatic loading. They can respond to an intrusion alarm, detect people in the area and vehicles, manage the position of their own workers and vehicles through dedicated geolocators. It is also a system that discourages assailants, by their very presence, they are large aircraft, almost three meters in diameter. In various crops, only by the presence of these aircraft, thefts and intrusions are reduced by almost 80%, thus demonstrating their effectiveness in that field.

On the other hand, drones are used
to manage crop quality without any previous installation.

That is, they can take samples or measure water quality easily and throughout the entire length of pools, constantly and accurately. Also helping companies to improve their management.

First, the drone performs analysis of solar irradiation, CO2, oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere. Combining that data with water measurements at various points in the ponds, distributed in the form of virtual quadrants. In this way, data are received from each square meter if necessary, several times a day and throughout the cycle. Avoiding diseases and other effects that may happen, if the levels are not adequate. Enabling more focused treatments, only in the necessary places. Thus reducing the cost of them or the consumption of machinery.


The key factors in analyzing shrimp farms are thermal,
multispectral cameras and sensor readings that sink into the water from the aircraft itself.

Obtain water temperature readings: It is one of the most critical factors, both the surface temperature of the water, and the bottom, during daily cycles. Since it involves knowing the levels of oxygen and other elements necessary for the correct development of the crop and, the levels of thermal stratification.

Drones can read very accurately the temperature at different depths, and exactly in position, several times a day.

Oxygen and carbon dioxide, show photosynthesis and respiration data: Being able to measure electrochemically, throughout the daily cycle, the presence or balance of these components, is a great advantage. In this way, the stress to which the shrimp is subjected is known, if there is a lack of oxygen and in what area, in order to correct it. Also nitrogen and phosphorus, are other important elements in swimming pools, and can also be measured, as well as conductivity (salinity) and PH.



Multispectral Cameras

The incorporation of ultraviolet, (UV) and thermal (LWIR) sensitive cameras allows us to know the phytoplankton quality and other plant data of the facilities and temperatures and the turbidity level of the environment.

The most important thing, apart from measurements that can be carried out without any previous installation, is the constancy in them both in the precise measurement locations, such as time planning and, which will never cease to be carried out for any reason. Only in this way will significant savings be achieved in treatments, because they can be anticipated beforehand, and because they are only in the necessary places. In addition, it is clear to avoid theft and other intrusions in the facilities.
