Why UgCS?

Added Safety

  • Use pre-installed or import more precise DEM data to increase accuracy and safety for missions with terrain following
  • Adjust the allowed flight range and No-Fly Zones to fly according to regulatory requirements

Increase productivity

  • Increase the data capture productivity with the inbuilt automatic photogrammetry planning tool
  • Plan and fly missions without internet connection with offline map caching
  • Fly long routes, resuming flights

Save time and money

  • No need to learn diverse software 
  • The import and route creation from customer provided KML data will save 50% of your time
  • Save time by validating acquired data by stitching images with the offline processing software UgCS Mapper

Map customization - Offline usage

Create routes from KML


KML files with boundaries of the survey area can be imported into UgCS to set precise survey location. “LineString” segments of the KML file will be imported as simple Waypoint route. “LinearRing” segment can be imported as “Area scan”,“Photogrammetry” or “Perimeter” route type. Video tutorial: KML and CSV Data Import into UgCS.

Plan surveys with Terrain following

UgCS enables mission planning in Terrain-following mode - enabling a very-low- flying vehicle to automatically maintain a relatively constant altitude above ground level. The accuracy of the default SRTM database of UgCS varies, therefore to enable precise and safe flight altitude precise DEM (Digital Elevation Model) data has to be imported of the survey area. Video tutorial: Area scan with Terrain following

Import DEM for safer mission planning

The terrain is always changing, but changes are not always implemented into 3D maps as fast as it is needed. To plan an automated low altitude or mission with terrain following for the purposes of mapping, surveying or monitoring, import Digital Elevation Model (DEM) into UgCS to plan safe missions. Video tutorial: DEM and Map Data Import

Georeferenced image import as Map overlays


To fly automated drone missions precise maps are more important than ever. Import GeoTIFF images as map overlay into UgCS, providing the power to customize the maps to suit your needs.

Mission planner - Drone control

Immersive 3D mission planning environment

UgCS features mission planner with a Google Earth-like 3D interface for UAV mission planning, enabling to navigate the environment more easily. Moreover, a 3D mission planning environment gives more control allowing to view the created flight plan from all angles, taking into account any obstacles such as terrain or buildings.

Aerial survey planning tools


UgCS offers tools to make aerial surveys and mapping as easy and effortless as possible. Choose one of the pre-installed cameras pre-sets or create a new one to suit your camera. The Area Scan and Photogrammetry tools will automatically calculate the flight path based on the camera settings. Alternatively, the Area Scan and Photogrammetry parameters can be adjusted manually, such as GSD, overlap or desired altitude.

Facade scan tool


The tool for vertical scanning allows to plan a vertical plane, specify the distance to the wall, as well as side and forward overlap. The optimal flying path is calculated automatically. UgCS supports importing 3D object and custom DEM data with the terrain following function. The tool is also extremely useful in mining for examining open quarries. Demo video of the Facade scan tool in action >>>

Elevation profile


Once UgCS completes the flight path calculation the elevation profile of the route displays the AGL and AMSL altitude of the drone. The exact altitudes above sea level at all points provides the ability to plan drone missions with respect to the surrounding.

Telemetry window


The telemetry data window in UgCS displays telemetry data including the charge level of the battery, radio link and GPS signal quality, current course and heading, speed, altitude and much more.

Automatic flight mode (waypoints) and direct drone control


UgCS enables multiple flight modes. The manual flight mode allows controlling the drone with the remote control. Once a flight plan is created and uploaded to the autopilot the Automatic flight mode can be used. For many drones, UgCS also supports Click&Go and Joystick control flight modes.

Software emulator


There are in-built software emulators for quadrocopters and fixed wing drones -emucopter and emuplane. It enables to test a route before uploading it to a real drone. Feel free to test diverse features and settings of UgCS in a safe environment.

Post-flight analysis and Image processing

Geotagging

UgCS has an in-build geotagging tool, allowing to sync the timestamps of the images with the autopilot's telemetry data recorded during the flight. After matching the geotags with coordinates and correct altitudes, the images can be used for the further processing. Create map overlays or 3D models to import them into UgCS for more precise mission planning.

Telemetry player


All telemetry data of the flights is recorded in UgCS, enabling to replay the flights of the drone during the flight.

No-Fly zones

No-Fly zones - airport registry


UgCS has built-in No-Fly zones (NFZ) for all major airports, enabling a safe flight planning near airports since the flight path will automatically be calculated around the no-fly zone. Airport no-fly zones can be disabled in UgCS PRO and UgCS ENTERPRISE.

Create custom No-Fly zones


UgCS has built-in No-Fly zones (NFZ) for all major airports, enabling a safe flight planning near airports since the flight path will automatically be calculated around the no-fly zone. Airport no-fly zones can be disabled in UgCS PRO and UgCS ENTERPRISE.

Fly zone limits for routes


Set boundaries for the flights starting from the first waypoint. Fly zone limits for routes feature gives the ability to control, that the drone does not fly too far away or higher than desired, according to local regulation.
