UgCS: Flight Planning & Control
February 7, 2019

SPH Engineering together with Modus AI held a webinar presenting the best practices of drone-based LiDAR systems and why UgCS is currently the best flight planning software for this application.

This webinar on LiDAR and drones will focus on the most essential topics for mission planning with UgCS: mission planning considering altitude and speed vs point density accuracy, considering altitude vs beam divergence, flight safety and other basics. It will also include demos on importing job files (KML format) and setting up the terrain-following mode etc.

The webinar was conducted by Daniel Hubert of Modus Ai and Kristaps Brass of SPH Engineering. Daniel Hubert is a drone and information management expert with 24 years of experience under his belt. Currently, he consults companies and institutions about the business opportunities that using a drone and remote sensing technologies can bring into their existing work practices. Kristaps Brass is a QA Engineer and UgCS Expert who has flown all kinds of drones (from Pixhawk and DJI up to Yuneec) and worked on all versions of UgCS flight planning software.
