On the 22nd of February we had the Kick-off event of the training on “Flying Sensors for agricultural purposes”. IHE Delft Institute for Water Education and the National Agricultural Research Center of Jordan (NARC) are collaborating with FutureWater and HiView in providing this tailor-made training.

With a grand opening by both IHE Delft and NARC representatives, this training has started and will continue until April. Modules will be provided through an eLearning platform (Open Course Ware), where trainers and participants (25 total) are actively engaged throughout the training. The four modules provided in this training will be both practical and technical with information on how to set up a drone unit (including selection of equipment and operational management), hands-on imagery processing, and advisory services to farmers. We are looking forward to sharing FutureWater’s and HiView’s experience and knowledge with NARC experts in Jordan through this training. Below a screenshot of the first session with a live demonstration of the various drones used in our projects.
