Atmos UAV releases a major Marlyn update called “Autumn Hike” revealing enhanced corridor mapping and intelligent checklist

Atmos UAV,the fast-growing Dutch drone manufacturer that develops high-end VTOL fixed-wing drones for surveying and mapping applications, proudly introduces a series of upgrades in Marlyn’s flight planning and control software, MarLynk.

The new features will be available for new and existing users.

Amongst a long list of improvements, the two features which according to the team will have the biggest impact on user experience with Marlyn, are (1) the enhanced corridor mapping to plan more easily and maximize the coverage of long-assets mapping and (2) the new intelligent checklist which is focused on the man-machine interface (MMI) by integrating automated system checks that result in completing the pre-flight procedure faster without compromising on safety.

Introducing Enhanced Corridor Mapping for maximized coverage

Atmos’ engineers went to the drawing board and challenged the status quo of how corridor mapping is being planned and executed by almost, if not all, fixed-wing drones out there. They came to the conclusion that the standard way of planning and executing corridor missions was simply outdated and that needed to be improved. So far, every drone needed a new approach for every segment created, which is simply not efficient and furthermore very time consuming.

Taking into account the flight characteristics of Marlyn, the team found a way to make the drone simply continue the corridor without the need to re-approach for every line, without compromise data quality! Resulting in more energy left for mapping and therefore, maximized coverage for each flight.
