Night 25/5, two unmanned aircraft by the Institute of Space Technology (Academy of Science and Technology of Vietnam) manufacturing continued successful implementation of the program with a four-night flight flight towards the South China Sea 50km.
According to Dr. Pham Ngoc Lang - Chairman of topics made unmanned aircraft for scientific research, the aircraft was flying in fully automatic mode, in accordance with the original itinerary flight commander for approval.
During night flights, the aircraft is equipped with infrared cameras, camera mounted infrared lens for night service dedicated research programs.

This morning (26/5), six unmanned aircraft continue to perform 10 successful flight research collaboration between the Institute functions under Academy of Science and Technology of Vietnam.
Dr. Lang said the results of the test flight program serves "Highlands 3" in Da Lat and flight test results for marine scientific research (both day and night-flying) helped the group in Nha Trang Research Institute of Space Technology continues to improve the aircraft, preparing to take on mass production, marine air service operations in particular and economic development - society in general.

Earlier, on 25/5, six unmanned aircraft took off at the beach Van Ninh district, Khanh Hoa, 100km from the city of Nha Trang north start flying program for scientific research on the marine waters Central.
This is a scientific research program coordinated between Nha Trang Institute of Oceanography, Institute of Research and Technology Applications Nha Trang Institute of Space Technology.
Dr. Pham Ngoc Lang - Chairman of topics made unmanned aircraft for scientific research - said the plane had been "assigned task" very specific.

Accordingly, AV.UAV.S1 aircraft take flight itinerary recording, imaging spectrometry ecosystems, coastal fisheries, vegetation, coral areas, distributed component substrate Van Phong Bay , sea surface temperature, measured sediment deposition in estuarine / marine, mangrove forests, coastal erosion areas, standardized photographs from satellites ... for research programs.
AV.UAV.S2 aircraft take flight at sea cruise on 100km with recording task, imaging spectrometry aquatic species on the continental shelf, the seabed coral, temperature, salinity seawater , ocean currents and detect potential areas for fish farmers and fishermen to provide data for the Nha Trang Oceanography Institute and the Institute of Research and Technology Applications Nha Trang.
