The ADS V3 is an automated deployment system for planting NRU 1C™ nodes “true vertical” into the ground, that are consistently well coupled and guided by high precision GPS navigation. The ADS V3 allows the deployment of 160 nodes (before reloading) with no touch required from an operator. The system is computer controlled with diesel hydraulic power, electronic actuators, allowing a single operator to drive and control the deployment of NRUs at pre-programmed receiver locations, with Bluetooth enabled QC of the node performance and the quality of the NRU plant.
