The integration of OPENSIGHT- Software Development Kit (sdk) with DJI drones ushers in a new era for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), elevating them into STANAG-Compliant sensors with state-of-the-art capabilities. This innovative integration enhances situational awareness and optimizes SAR results by seamlessly combining data from Lifeseeker, the airborne phone location system by CENTUM and FlySight’s OPENSIGHT technologies. Moving maps and augmented reality functionalities within a tablet ground control station – OPENSIGHT-mission console (mc).
All information is transmitted in the OPENSIGHT-mc augmented reality environment and displayed directly on the operator’s tablet screen, providing a user-friendly interface with the overlaying multiple synthetic information layers directly onto the live video feed. Lifeseeker compatibility significantly enhances geolocation performance during SAR operations, even in challenging low or no visibility conditions. The information collected by Lifeseeker is relayed to the OPENSIGHT engine in real-time, creating an optimal situational awareness for the operator. This enhancement expedites and maximizes the efficiency of recovery operations.
Héctor Estévez, CEO of CENTUM, said: “This partnership with FlySight is a testament to our commitment to saving lives and making a difference in critical situations. By integrating our Lifeseeker technology with the OPENSIGHT Software Development Kit, we’re not only enhancing the capabilities of DJI drones, but also expanding our reach to helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. We are pushing the boundaries of technology to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of search and rescue operations.”
“We are excited to join forces with CENTUM to bring this cutting-edge technology to search and rescue missions- said Mattia Carpin, Head of Engineering of FlySight -. Our integrated solution empowers operators with unparalleled capabilities, enabling them to respond effectively and efficiently to emergencies and critical situations. This collaboration between OPENSIGHT and LIFESEEKER is poised to set a new standard in the world of search and rescue operations, harnessing the power of DJI drones to make a real difference when it matters most”.
