Parrot has announced that the ANAFI platform is now compatible with the professional Universal ground Control Software (UgCS) mission planning solution from SPH Engineering. ANAFI users now have access to the programme’s vast range of tools to enhance professional drone operations and streamline land surveying and mapping processes.
UgCS is a tool for enhanced UAV mission planning and data collection suitable for land surveying and industrial inspections. It is an industry-standard data acquisition instrument for professional drone pilots doing their job with a mixed multi-vendor drone fleet in large scale surveying projects. It allows to plan and fly drone survey missions to safely collect high-quality data, providing convenient technics for aerial and linear surveys and enabling direct drone control. UgCS also offers key features including custom elevation data import, terrain following mode and georeferenced video streaming.
“UgCS is one of the most advanced mission planning software for drones. Its unique features make it the perfect tool to complete complex and large-scale mapping projects,” said Jerome Bouvard, Parrot Director of Strategic Partnership.
Through its SDK Partner programme, Parrot is working to create a global ecosystem of drone software providers to serve the unique and ever-evolving needs of its enterprise and professional users.
UgCS users’ global network unites private, public and educational organizations, as well as resellers in +150 countries since 2013. The software is regularly updated to support new drone types, while Parrot ANAFI support was added to new UgCS v.4.0. UgCS is offered as a monthly subscription or perpetual license, and new customers have the opportunity to take advantage of a 14-day free trial.
