Mission Control System
All in one planning, monitoring and exporting software
Using QBase is the easiest way to pre-plan an aerial survey mission for Quantum Tron and Trinity UAVs.
QBase automatically generates efficient flight paths after the flight area and the mission parameters have been defined with a few clicks. These steps allow you to be up and flying in no-time with our powerful and easy-to-use software.
You are in complete control over your photogrammetric aerial survey mission and guaranteed full coverage over the area of interest.
QBase provides real-time information from your Tron or Trinity. It also features an instrument panel that gives you updates on the altitude, attitude, speed, heading and battery health to help you diagnose your Quantum-System UAV condition at any time.
Our QBase features a two layer safety system which ensures the success of your mission. The first mission check is integrated within the QBase which performs a possibility check while you plan your mission.
Once you transfer the mission to the UAV the integrated autopilot performs a security check in order to ensure the mission can be successfully flown with the available UAV resources such as battery capacity, temperature or sensor status.
Quantum-System UAVs combined with QBase help surveyors, farmers, scientists, quarrymen, civil engineers and geologists to focus on their application, allowing them to just fly!
3D AREA PLANNING
The 3D area planning feature provides the automatic creation of flight plans in sloped and mountainous areas. It uses high resolution digital elevation data (e.g. SRTM) to create collision free and energy optimized trajectories for an optimal data quality result.
The corridor planning function creates optimized flight plans for mapping infrastructures like roads, railways and power lines. It optimizes the flight segments according to the terrain altitude as well as the camera characteristics.
LIVE AIR TRAFFIC
The ADS-B data of other aircraft can now be visualized in QBase to preserve the UAV operator‘s situational awareness. Furthermore, QBase performs a risk and collision assessment and offers operator support to prevent collisions. These features enable safe BVLOS flights and missions within controlled airspaces.
Before the detailed planning of the mission begins, basic parameters must be defined:
An intuitive user interface allows the selection of the respective UAV as well as the payload to be used. The link loss time and the speed of the aircraft can also be individually adjusted.
Compile your flight plan from one or more mission elements. Depending on the application there are different basic elements to choose from:
The Area Element is suitable for flying over areas (fields, opencast mining, forests, …). QBase creates your flight plan by specifying a polygon.
- Corridor (e.g. railway lines, roads, …)
If your destination is to get aerial photos of a railway line or road, specify this by a simple line and get the appropriate flight plan.
Set waypoints manually and make your flight plan flexible. (Advanced Mode)
In order to get an accurate overview of the current mission and its progress, QBase also offers the possibility to follow the UAV live.
All relevant parameters (battery status, flight time, altitude, number of recorded images of the payload etc.) are displayed and provide a comprehensive overview.
This even goes so far that ADS-B data flows into this mode and is faded in. Especially in highly frequented airspaces this function provides a plus in safety.
In order to introduce a new pilot to Qbase and its functions quickly and safely, a tutorial function is available.
In easy to follow steps, you will be guided through the basic planning steps and thus acquire the necessary basic knowledge.
To use more advanced functions, we still recommend that you have one of our resellers conduct further training.
