HORIZONmp allows both the UAV developer and the end user to access critical information in real time. Up to eight user-defined sensors can be configured and displayed in three formats:

  • Current sensor values are displayed in an easy-to-read gauge format; warning and danger levels can be set for each gauge
  • The Strip Chart graphs sensor-specific variations over time
  • The Trace Route displays sensor data variations along the UAV's flight path

Data from the autopilot is also recorded for post-flight analysis.


HORIZONmp offers superior configurability for the UAV developer:

  • User-configurable payload buttons and sliders initiate holding patterns and control servos
  • Supports multiple laptop screen resolutions
  • Features can be enabled or disabled according to the application and user requirements

HORIZONmp accommodates both the end user and the UAV developer.
