Payload

Ground control station

The portable ground control station provides:

  • UAV’s flight plan that can be corrected in real-time  (general mode)
  • a manually operated flight control with the PGCS (standby mode)
  • a carrying out flight mission with taking ground at a landing point if a connection was aborted or resuming flight with a new mission if it was restored (standby mode)
  • UAV’s returning to the take-off point if a navigation signal was lost (emergency mode)
  • a landing at the landing point with a maximal root-mean-square error no more than 50 m with a wind speed at surface layer is less than 10 mps.
  • RMS lateral deviation from the flight plan in the range from 30 to 50
  • Operating with a such satellite navigation systems as GLONASS and GPS

Data processing software can:

  • Draw up an area photomap*
  • Construct 3D model of area*
