All Geoscan airplanes operate fully automatically. Just point out the survey area on an interactive map and the UAV will do the rest of the job..
The launch is executed by placing the UAV on the catapult and pressing the button on the ground control station. At the end of mission UAV will smoothly parachute down to the launch point. Our smart autopilot is designed for fail-safe operation even in severe conditions and is equipped with a set of sensors for continuous flight parameters monitoring: air speed, altitude, attitude and battery level.
In a case of any emergency situation UAV will automatically fly back to the launch point or perform an emergency landing. Managing the flight from the ground station, you can always cancel or change the mission in a few clicks.
