SPH Engineering has unveiled a centralized drone management system that is designed to support law enforcement, firefighter, search-and-rescue and security service command centers in surveillance and first response missions.
The Universal Ground Control Software aims to provide real-time in-field drone position mapping and live video streaming capability, SPH’s UgCS team said Thursday.
UgCS works to allow command center operators to mark points of interest on a map shared with field drone operators via a secure private network to either direct the latter toward the area in need of inspection or assume manual control of the drone and its camera.
Janis Kuze, sales director of SPH Engineering, said the drone management system facilitates integration of unmanned aerial vehicles with emergency and security command centers.
UgCS serves to provide in-field personnel and command center officers a live preview of the situation in dangerous or inaccessible environments in support of situation assessment, decision-making and management of first responder teams, Kuze added.
The company will exhibit the technology at the Milipol Paris 2017 event that will run through Nov. 24 in France.
