Optimize UAV Operations

Flight Planning. Use high-accuracy terrain information in urban and rural environments to identify new bases, distribution centers, strategic positions, obstructions and vantage points

Flight Safety. Minimize risk of collision with high-precision locations of billions of obstructions worldwide, including buildings, vegetation and terrain features

Flight Efficiency. Reduce the “uncertainty envelope” on flight paths. Determine and select optimal routes, minimize elevation gains and increase payload weight

Sensor Integration. Highly suitable for real-time sensor integration for full situational awareness. NEXTView data provides strategic overview and onboard sensors provide real-time tactical overview
