North Bethesda, Md.-based Progressive Technology Federal Systems Inc. (PTFS) has introduced Droneware, a geospatial content management system for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
According to the company, Droneware facilitates the storage, discovery and dissemination of virtually any type of sensor data captured by a UAS.
‘Droneware makes it easy to manage enormous archives of UAS data so the right image, video or other sensor data can be found and accessed instantly,” explains Dan Quinn, vice president of PTFS. ‘Droneware is configured and ready for use in minutes for fast and effective support of any UAS data application.”
A thin, client/server-based solution requiring only a Web connection, Droneware runs on a PC in the office or handheld device in the field – enabling users to interrogate local or remote UAS data storage anytime from anywhere.
Users can perform geospatial queries by typing a geographic name or word, entering latitude/longitude coordinates, or performing a visual search by drawing a rectangle on a map interface. Droneware performs the search on the entire archive, regardless of data type or file format.
PTFS offers the option of deploying Droneware as the client's repository of record in which all UAS content is ingested, stored, managed and searched inside the application. Droneware can be purchased on the Amazon Marketplace and deployed in various EC2 cloud instances for commercial or hobbyist applications.
