Japan Drone & AAM Awards 2023

Presentation and Award Ceremony

Wednesday, June 28, 16:00~17:00 at the open stage in the exhibition hall

Hardware Category| Grand Prize


The "IBIS" drone developed by LIBERAWARE is one of the industry's smallest drones, with dimensions of 20cm and weight of 243 g. It is equipped with an advanced variable control function that enables stable flight and high-bridge density images inside equipment of various types. By using IBIS, the factory war rate can be reduced by greatly extending the inspection period (reduction of opportunity loss), and scaffolding costs and manpower costs can be reduced by shortening the construction period. It also reduces the need for workers to enter hazardous areas, thereby improving safety.
In addition, 3D data generated from the acquired video and image data will be used to promote advanced facility maintenance, stabilize production, and increase efficiency.


Software Application Category| Grand Prize

Advanced Spatial Information Technology Evaluation Support Center x Environmental Remote Sensing Research Center, Chiba University x Gotemba City "VIRTIUAL MONITORING TOWER”

The "Virtual Monitoring Tower" is a system that can acquire centimeter-level accurate location information (plum degree longitude) of the disaster point and the damage situation (images) by simultaneously shadowing the disaster point with two drones at the time of disaster.
This allows data acquisition from a safe distance without the need to fly over the evacuees, as is conventionally done. This R&D project has been conducted in collaboration with industry, government, and academia, and has included the development of a dedicated aircraft and software, as well as actual experiments and market value assessments through the government's Disaster Prevention Assessment Line.

Toyo Seikan Co., Ltd. "Spray-can injector system for drones "SABOT-3"“

The "SABOT-3" is a spray can injector for drones. The SABOT-3 provides drones, which have been mainly used for aerial photography, with new working power, enabling them to work in high places without lifting their feet. The spray cans can be used for a wide range of purposes simply by replacing the cans, such as light repair work on structures using rust inhibitors or concrete surface impregnators, marking work during inspections, and bird damage prevention using repellent agents.
