This i3e-lab project focuses in exploring the possibilities of the remotely piloted aircraft systems in science together with RPAS.
LBS has airspace available to allow pilots to fly their remotely piloted aircraft beyond visual line of sight and higher than the regulated 150m above ground level. The airspace is located in the immediate surroundings of LBS and in the Evo area 20 km north of the station (see maps below). Each of the subareas can be activated on the day prior to flights. The airspace available directly above the station has an altitude limit of approximately 2000 m above ground level and the other areas are limited to 400 m above ground level.
