A drone flyover of the ITER site

Using everything that flies (balloon, helicopter, light airplane...) aerial surveys of the ITER site have been organized on a regular basis since 2007. Each technique has offered its own advantages in terms of altitude, manoeuvrability and flexibility.

Early on Wednesday 8 April, a new type of craft was employed—a drone, equipped with a light camera, was flown by remote control over the main work areas of the ITER platform.

Hovering at an altitude of approximately 60 metres, the small buzzing machine took the pictures that we present in the slideshow below, and recorded a video that can be viewed here.
