UgCS is universal ground control software for simultaneously managing multiple drones from different manufacturers with single software. It employs advanced algorithms and leverages a specific UAV’s capabilities for calculating routes and object avoidance.
For nearly two years the team has been testing the software ensuring it exceeds or has abilities at least on par with native mission planning software of supported vehicles.
Currently UgCS supports vehicles equipped with following autopilots: MikroKopter, Ardupilot APM/Pixhawk, DJI Naza-M(Phantom 2)/Wookong-M/A2, ARDrone, Microdrones. But, SPH Engineering engineers can add support to additional autopilot by request in less than 3 months, including field tests.
At the moment three versions of the software are available. UgCS Open which is free but with some limitations, UgCS ONE supports only one type of autopilot and aimed at less complex operations, and UgCS Pro is the full suite- offering a multi user environment and the ability to deploy control interface, server, and vehicle connecting modules of the software on separate computers
UgCS supports most popular map formats and can work both with on-line or offline map sources.
All versions support 3D maps, thus allowing operators easy ways to evaluate a planned route and operations.
