April 5, 2016 – SPH Engineering and MicroPilot Inc. are pleased to announce that the UgCS ground control station software is now compatible with MicroPilot’s line of helicopter and multirotor autopilots. Fixed wing support will be coming soon.

UgCS supports Click-and-Go functionality, waypoint actions, live video streaming and recording; replaying the flight in telemetry player, and importing 3D buildings and terrain profiles. All of these features of UgCS are available for users of MicroPilot autopilots. Furthermore, UgCS supports joystick payload control with MicroPilot-equipped drones.

MicroPilot autopilots are compact, ultra light-weight autopilots that can fly anything from multirotors, to helicopters to fixed wing aircraft. The autopilot models range from the entry level MP1028g2 autopilot, to the triple redundant MP21283X autopilot.

Both MicroPilot Inc. and SPH Engineering are pleased to be working together. President of MicroPilot, Howard Loewen, said: “We are pleased that UgCS is now available for use with MicroPilot autopilots. UgCS gives MicroPilot’s customers more choice for GCS software, allowing them to better serve their end users.” Out of the box, the current version of UgCS is, with the Pro license, compatible with MicroPilot autopilots. As Janis Kuze, the sales director of SPH Engineering said “We are always excited to forge partnerships with other companies working in the UAV field. Working with Micropilot and their advanced autopilots has helped us bring UgCS to the next level by making it available for use with more sophisticated systems.”
