China's thirty-fourth Antarctic expedition has completed organizing the team. Our BNU 2015 doctoral graduate students Li Teng and graduate student Zhao Jian has been selected as team member and will serve as a global player to participate in the investigation. The two students will take on China's snow Eagle 601 fixed wing aircraft to Zhongshan Station in early December, to start the no UAV Remote Sensing Investigation of Antarctic environment for a period of 2 months. This is the fourth consecutive years since 2014, our BNU Global Institute polar remote sensing team sending members to go to the Antarctic to conduct unmanned aerial vehicle remote sensing environment.
During the past summer, a new polar fixed wing UAV completed domestic flight test. It will be in Extreme Eagle type IV to join the Extreme Eagle series into the polar fixed wing uav. This is an oil-motor, heavy-load and long endurance fixed wing UAV specially developed for remote sensing operation of polar unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). It is expected to be applied in remote sensing survey of Arctic ice shelf, sea ice, ocean system in the future. The new kind of Eagle UAV enter the line, will further enhance our polar UAV observation ability, keep our BNU in the leading level of the polar UAV technology.
