Drones surveying area around Chernobyl provide the most detailed look yet at fallout from the 1986 disaster

One of the most radioactive places on Earth has been mapped in unprecedented detail, thanks to a team of British scientists equipped with the latest in drone technology.

Chernobyl’s Red Forest remains highly irradiated 33 years on from the catastrophic accident at the number-4 nuclear reactor.

Experts led by the UK’s National Centre for Nuclear Robotics and the University of Bristol used drones fitted with custom-built radiation detectors to create 3D maps of the area, some of which lies just 1,600ft (500m) from the power plant.

Remote Monitored Systems plc (LON:RMS) is focused on the continued development of the Company’s ‘Survey & Inspection’ business. RMS’s Geocurve subsidiary is a specialist surveying business which combines traditional survey techniques with innovative technologies including UAS/UAV, GIS databases, 3D modelling, laser and Lidar scanning and hydrographic modelling.
