Raymarine, a manufacturer of electronic equipment for marine applications, has announced the launch of Axiom UAV, a new unmanned aerial imaging app for Raymarine’s Axiom.
Delivering a marine electronics industry first, Raymarine Axiom users can now take to the skies with the latest LightHouse 3.6 OS update. The new Axiom UAV app brings together the power and simplicity of Raymarine navigation with advanced unmanned aerial imaging.
Compatible with the DJI Mavic Pro drone, the Axiom UAV app automates many common tasks including launch, airborne imaging, in-flight navigation, and return-to boat. Fishing and cruising boats alike can greatly benefit from having this added aerial imaging platform integrated onboard.
The Axiom UAV app offers multiple options to control the Mavic Pro in flight, including an automatic “return to boat” feature. In addition to the automatic flight modes, Axiom UAV also offers virtual on-screen joysticks for manual flight. Users can also take control at any time with the DJI Mavic Pro joystick controller.
Axiom UAV is a free update for Axiom, Axiom Pro and Axiom XL multifunction displays. The LightHouse 3.6 update is now available for Axiom owners to download directly to their Wi-Fi-enabled MFDs or users can download the software from the Raymarine.com website.
