MAVinci Desktop 2.4: Efficient Multi Flight Planning for MAVinci UAS

With the new 2.4 MAVinci Dektop Release MAVinci introduces a novelity on the UAS market: the advanced Multi Flight Planning Tool for mapping applications. It automatically calculates multiple flight plans to cover areas which exceed the range of one flight. “The acquisition of large area orthophotos and DEMs is optimized with MAVinci Desktop 2.4.“ says MAVinci CEO Marco Möller. “The new tool saves up to 30% flight time for large UAS missions.” Another benefit is that every single flight plan can be operated in the line of sight of the operator. For postprocessing, the data of multiple flights can be joined again to process the whole area in one block. Read More

After selecting the area of interest and the desired GSD (Ground sampling distance) of the aerial images the software automatically determines whether the area can be covered in one flight. If more than one flight is necessary the flight plan is instantly split in two or more flight plans. The optimized multi flight planning saves time and avoids unnecessary overlap between the single flight plans.
