    Flying high, and safely, with UAV software

    Owing to some rogue operations, such as the Gatwick Airport incident in 2018, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operators need to be able to provide the real-time locations of their machines, should the need arise. Moreover, knowing the exact location of a UAV and using route-planning software is logical: it can save time and money and ensures safer operation.

    RSK devised bespoke and innovative software that will register, record and monitor their clients’ UAVs. Specifically, clients undertaking aerial surveying can bypass time-consuming safety checks and route planning by using the software to plan routes and complete safety checks before the UAV leaves the ground. It saves times and money, and, once the UAV is airborne, operators can track the flight in real time through an interactive map. Operators may also report hazards, such as no-fly zones and power lines, and the weather situation is continually updated to ensure flight safety and clear visibility. Once the UAV completes its task, the route and images are stored for easy access via the operator’s tablet or smartphone.
