- Connect to the UTM system via various portable devices such as PC / tablet/mobile
- World’s first real-time viewing of FHD high-quality images taken by Drone through IPTV
- Remotely fly a drone at a distance of hundred kilometers.
With U+ Smart Drone UTM System, weather information such as humidity, wind direction, wind speed can be checked at any time.
Also, it shows the radio-field intensity and set the flight route to the area where the radio-field strength is high.
As one of the features of U + Smart Drone UTM System, drones autonomously stop flying when it recognizes other drones, aircraft, and birds. In an emergency, drones utilize the parachute equipped to land in a safe area.
