Updated Flight Planning and Management Solutions from Leica Geosystems

Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging announces availability of Flight Planning Evaluation Software (FPES) and Flight and Sensor Control Management System (FCMS)

Norcross, GA – Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging today announced the availability of a planning and a flight management solution to support its aerial sensors, including the Leica ADS40 Airborne Digital Sensor. The Flight Planning and Evaluation Software (FPES) and the Flight and Sensor Control Management System (FCMS) are tightly integrated into the Leica Geosystems digital workflow to facilitate seamless data flow and automated flight control.

With an easy-to-learn and easy-to-use graphical interface, the FPES flight planning module enables flight planning on all common types of geographic and grid systems; interactive flight planning using digital maps and coordinates; and comfortable editing and modifying of flight plans. The evaluation mode features multiple flight evaluation; flexible data export; and data summary and calculation for easy flight reporting and invoicing.

FCMS integrates flight and sensor control of the ADS40 tightly into the entire workflow to increase productivity and cut costs. The intuitive operation allows novice users to operate the ADS40 through high automation that minimizes user interaction. The easy-to-learn system features integrated tutorial and simulator software; quick and configurable navigation; optimized flight guidance; and remote control from multiple user interfaces.

“FPES is the first step in powering geospatial imaging, enabling quality control at the start of the workflow providing seamless data flow from fight planning to photogrammetry,” said Wendy Watson, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing for Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging. “Both FPES and FCMS are an integrated part of our digital workflow to facilitate efficient flight planning, management and ultimately increase productivity and cut costs.”
