SPH Engineering is founded in 2013, located in Riga, Latvia and employs a hard driven team of 20 professionals and enthusiasts alike. The company offers unmanned systems integration services: building, acquiring and consulting on the selection of airframes, autopilots, payloads for a particular application and performing proof of concept projects and software development.
UgCS (Universal ground Control Software) - a software for central management of all types and manufacturers of unmanned vehicles, enabling to control one or a fleet of drones on a single mission in multi-operator mode and multi-platform environments. Ease of integration and adding support for new vehicles or payloads is achieved by the modular architecture of UgCS. UgCS Mapper - offline mapping tool to create high-quality 2D or 3D orthophoto maps with the option to generate elevation models and stitched orthophoto maps can now be automatically added as map overlays into UgCS with just a push of a button.
DroneShowSoftware is developed to manage a swarm of drones equipped with lights, fireworks, smoke generators or other payloads for astonishing shows. The drone choreography can be planned in 3D animation software, transformed to drone flight paths via a plugin and managed from a single computer equipped with DroneShowSoftware.
GPR-UAV-UgCS integrated solution - A GPR mounted on a drone enables to see through the surface of the ground, ice, rocks, freshwater, and buildings or through structures at unsafe and hazardous environments without compromising the safety of staff, providing an additional solution for more efficient surveying. To enable a full integration of the radar and drone SPH Engineering has developed a lightweight onboard data logger and the support of GPR in the ground control software for drones - UgCS - the status of the radar and its current trace is displayed on the screen of UgCS, enabling automatical data logging.
Methane detector-UAV integrated solution - UgCS Data Logger is the key element that enables the full integration of the drone, laser methane detector, and ground control software UgCS. The onboard UgCS Data Logger, designed by SPH Engineering, saves the gas detector’s data in .txt format and transfers them instantly to the remote control of the drone pilot and to the desktop software UgCS. This allows operators to detect leaks in real time and ensure faster response time.
Laser altimeter for True Terrain Following - The adding of the UgCS Data Logger and a laser altimeter to UAV integrated systems, enables the drone to fly at low and constant AGL altitudes (up to 1 meter) in the True Terrain Following mode - the drone adjusts itself according to the sensor's data to keep at an exact altitude above ground level.
UgCS for Command centres - solution for Police, Search and Rescue (SAR), Firefighter and Security services Command centres, enables more precise situation assessment, decision making and effective management of first responder teams, providing more efficient resolution of a disaster situation. Drone pilots onsite provide data of drone's location and live video stream to Command centre via a secure connection. Command centre operator can track the real-time position of drone, mark points of interest for detailed onsite investigation or take manual control over drone and camera.
AirMast - innovative sky mast for communication and surveillance - an easy and quickly deployable mean to bring up sensors in the sky, not requiring operators specific technical knowledge. AirMast can provide significant support for most search and rescue, environment protection, telecommunication, and video surveillance activities.
SPH Engineering's Team continuously follows the latest industry developments, to be at least one step ahead and be able to consult our clients on how to turn their ideas (often out of science fiction) to the products addressing specific needs and requirements. Even as hobby our Team members fly drones, build robots and experiment with new technology and 3D printing.
We love, what we do - our technology is not just a product - it's our passion!
