Kongsberg Geospatial has integrated its Iris UAS ground control station (GCS) with Survae’s digital asset management platform for geolocated video, imagery and data, the company announced on 5 April.

The integration will allow a single operator to manage the unified, real-time display and storage of video streams from multiple UAS being simultaneously managed by the Iris GCS.

Videos are meta-tagged and stored for near real-time analysis or for post-mission archival search of missions flown. This expanded post-mission retrieval and analysis capability will significantly reduce the workload for UAS operators.

The Kongsberg Geospatial Iris GCS provides real-time services to enable beyond visual line-of-sight operations including real-time calculation of aircraft separation and line-of-sight for data communications.

Eric Hesterman, CEO of Survae, said: 'It is clear that future operations will require a single operator to be able to manage the data collection from multiple aircraft. The Kongsberg Geospatial Iris GCS provides the ability to manage multiple aircraft and their sensors so Kongsberg is a very logical partner for us to provide an integrated solution for operators. Managing the data is the next challenge for the drone industry.'
