Federal National Guard Troops Service, Federal Security Service department and Forestry authority together inspected local forests and apprehended illegal loggers who were cutting Mongolian oaks – valuable wood species. The law breakers were detected by means of ZALA UAV 421-16E.
Since they started to apply ZALA unmanned systems for regular surveillance, the illegal loggers became easier to detect. Unmanned aerial vehicles regularly monitor horizonless forests daily and nightly, giving a rapid overview and helping to find violators. Also ZALA UAS are used for fire-protection inspections.
Thanks to application of unmanned systems, law enforcement authorities and environmental organizations may not only catch the law breakers red-handed, but also use the photo and video as evidence in court.
Now all the materials of the detected illegal loggers are given to necessary authorities for further consideration.
