New UgCS drone mission planning software update arrives with exciting features

Riga, Latvia – June 26, 2019 – Improving core functionality, the new UgCS v.3.3 boasts a brand-new photo placemark feature and better mission saving and loading performance.

For this latest update of the UgCS, its developer – SPH Engineering – has focused on improving the user experience and extending the analytics capacities of its smart drone mission planning software.

Photo placemarks for a more detailed survey analysis

The key new feature is the photo placemark option, allowing for the more detailed and systematic analysis of images captured during a mission. When using the UgCS for DJI app, the drone pilot can switch into “Photo placemark” mode to add placemarks to particular locations on the UgCS desktop map view that require further examination.

Each placemark has the exact coordinates on the UgCS map, as well as the captured image attached to it. By simply clicking on the marks in the desktop environment, these images can later be examined in full detail. “This means a level of precision unobtainable on the small tablet screen of the drone remote controller, whose position is now also displayed on the UgCS map whenever GPS is enabled,” says Janis Kuze, Sales Director at SPH Engineering.

Faster mission processing and more supported devices

Significant improvements have been made to mission saving and loading performance, making the process much faster, especially when it comes to missions with lengthy and complex routes. Missions are now exported in JSON – a more human-readable format than the previously used XML.

The extensive list of payloads and vehicles supported by UgCS now includes the DJI Zenmuse XT2 payload and the xCraft x2i VTOL plane. On top of that, minor bugs have been fixed to ensure a seamless drone survey experience.
