UgCS, in partnership with Airborne Response, has developed a comprehensive search capability for UAS that will allow pilots to conduct SAR operations more effectively.

The new enhancements to the UgCS mission planning software will give UAS pilots a variety of quickly customisable search patterns such as an 'expanding square' and 'creeping line' that can be easily deployed in emergency and non-emergency situations. 

Based on the flight altitude input by the operator, the UgCS software will automatically calculate key variables such as the course heading and track spacing necessary to provide the prescribed coverage area for a search target.

Additionally, Airborne Response and UgCS will offer the UgCS mission planning software and associated training to public safety and emergency response professionals throughout the US.

Janis Kuze, sales director of SPH Engineering, said: ‘The new UgCS search feature is designed to make searching for a target with a drone as simple and reliable as possible. We look forward to continue working with the Airborne Response team to further enhance the software capabilities and implement additional search pattern features.’
