Mission planning plays a critical role in carrying out an operation involving the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The success of the mission largely depends on two factors — the correct route and altitude profile definition.
Predictive paths play a critical role in the overall performance of UAVs. After taking into account the challenges faced by industry professionals, UAV Navigation is all set to roll out upgrades to Visionair.
Version 8 of UAV Navigation's Flight Control System (FCS) allows the creation of flight plans with waypoints which update their position automatically in relation to a moving reference point, such as a Ground Control Station (GCS) located onboard a ship or a ground based vehicle.
The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is a massive technical infrastructure consisting of a two segments
A datalink is a means of transmitting information from one point to another. When the transmission is accomplished using a wireless means, the datalink may also be referred to as a 'radio link' or 'radio modem'.
Data management is a fundamental aspect of any information system, including those used within the aeronautical sector.
The helicopter platform offers a very particular set of advantages over its fixed wing counterpart and this has led to its use in a wide variety of operational scenarios where vertical take-off and landing, and often also the ability to hover, is required.
