Alpha Unmanned Systems, SL is a privately held independent company based in Madrid, Spain. Alpha is the leading manufacturer of gasoline powered helicopter UAVs and advanced UAV engineering services.
Founded in 2014, the Alpha team includes aeronautical engineers, electronic engineers, mechanical engineers, UAV pilots and business professionals.
The technology provided by Alpha Unmanned Systems comprises advanced professional UAVs and Ground Control Stations.
Alpha counts with two different UAVs in the market: the Alpha 800 and the Alpha 900, which can fly up to 4,5h and carry up to 6 kg thanks to their gasoline-powered engines. This also enables flight in adverse weather conditions, such as light rain or snow. All electronic systems count with IP64 protection or higher.
The Ground Control Stations provided and designed by Alpha Unmanned systems can operate with no external electric supply up to 3h, powering both the computer, antennas, tracking systems for the antennas and other auxiliary devices. We also designed different antenna configurations for radial ranges from 5km to 50km, thanks to advanced tracking systems.
By using our Ground Control Station, the UAVs can be operated and commanded in fully autonomous mode, or assisted manual mode when desired. The UAVs use advanced, failure-proof autopilot technology, providing safe operation even in the more demanding scenarios.
eVineyard is an intuitive and easy-to-use vineyard management software that helps you grow better quality grapes more sustainably. Manage your vineyards smarter and get more time to vineyard activities rather than paperwork.
eVineyard is used by vineyards in multiple coutries around the world. It is used by growers managing from one hectare of vineyards, up to gthe largest vineyard owners in certain countries, owning multiple hundereds of hectares os vineyard.
GeneticAI is a technological Startup that combines Artificial Intelligence and New Technologies with the aim of focusing its efforts on improving People’s health, Active Aging and Smart Agriculture.
Our expertise on Artificial Intelligence allows us to design a Genetic algorithm for Path-Planning of Unmanned Vehicle (Robot). The genetic algorithm (GA) is an effective method to solve the path-planning problem and to help in the realization of the autonomous navigation and control of unmanned vehicles. In order to overcome the inherent shortcomings of conventional GA such as population premature and slow convergence speed, we propose the strategy of increasing the number of offsprings by using the multi-domain inversion. Meanwhile, a second fitting evaluation will be conducted to eliminate undesirable offsprings and preserve the most advantageous individuals. The improvement could help to enhance the capability of local search effectively and increase the probability of generating excellent individuals. The algorithm will be applied on the navigation, guidance, and control system of the unmanned vehicle in a real environment.
Comparative studies reveal that an algorithm with multi-domain inversion is superior with a desirable balance between the path length and time-cost, and has a shorter optimal path, a faster convergence speed, and better robustness than the others.
Picterra makes getting from raw data to actionable insights fast, flexible and more intuitive than ever before.
Picterra today has the capability to detect anomalies in vineyard structure based on the imagery obtained by UAVs such as Alpha Unmanned Systems’ helicopters. Such analysis for anomaly detection will be part of the service provided by the Drone Service Providers outside of the periods of time with frosting conditions, in order to deliver additional value to the farms and provide higher RoI. This analysis will also easily be integrated in the eVineyard portal to centralize information for the management of the vineyard.
Finca Zerberos will integrate the aforementioned set of technologies into its processes, execute it, validate the system and gather data about its cost effectiveness. Their vineyards are placed at different altitudes (between 650 and 950 metres of altitude, presenting a high unevenness) and suffer from frost every year.
