The Quadcopter is a small commercial quad-rotor platform that provides mine and unexploded ordnance (UXO) clearance managers significantly enhanced management support capability. Quadcopter`s high definition video and photographic equipment provide an unprecedented set of tools to help minefield managers perform pre-clearance mission planning, aerial survey and post clearance survey tasks. Video is transmitted in real time, enabling supervisors to monitor clearance activities at any point in the mine / UXO contaminated area being cleared. It also gives clearance equipment operators the ability to examine the ground ahead of the equipment and identify hazards to the equipment. The system is easy to operate and easy to train.
