Intelesence, a leading provider of technical services encompassing UAS (unmanned aerial systems), drone and aerospace design and systems engineering, has partnered with Unmanned Systems Technology (“UST”) to demonstrate their expertise in this field. The ‘Silver’ profile highlights the company’s Bluetooth Temperature and Humidity Sensor, developed in conjunction with SMRC (Systems Research and Manufacturing Corporation), which allows users to easily turn a drone into an aerial weather monitoring station.

Bluetooth temperature and humidity drone sensorThe Mini Temperature & Humidity Sensor is a lightweight and miniature unit that is ideal for converting SWaP (size, weight and power)-limited drones into airborne drone weather stations. Weighing just 3 ounces (85 grams), it can be incorporated into a wide range of UAV platforms.

The sensor is controlled via Bluetooth with an easy-to-use Android smartphone app, which provides useful at-a-glance information including the sensor status and battery level, latest readings, and reading dates and times. The app can also graph readings over time, making it easier for users to visualize the data and spot trends.

The battery-powered air temperature and humidity sensor can provide readings at a rate adjustable between once per minute to once per hour, suiting a range of power budgets.

Software Development ServicesSMRC also provides a range of professional electronic hardware and software design services, and specializes in creating wireless communication solutions operating in the ISM (industrial medical and scientific) band.

With a team of experts from diverse backgrounds including electronics, mathematical modelling and aeronautics, SMRC’s services are highly suited to creating bespoke communications solutions for UAVs and unmanned systems.
