Software Help for Rangefinder-based Geolocation Algorithms and OSD Displays

Started this discussion. Last reply by Hunter Parris Oct 15, 2013. 3 Replies

I am working on a project that consists of taking an OEM laser rangefinder and an HD camera with OSD to accurately geolocate objects on the ground by running a series of algorithms.  The overal goal…Continue

Unable to translate Communication Protocol

I have been trying to decipher the protocol I get when connected to my APM 2.5.  I originally saw this when I opened up the terminal in Mission Planner to analyze the MAVLink.  After that I opened…Continue

SITL with X-Plane

Started Jan 19, 2013 0 Replies

I'm wondering if it is possible to use SITL with X-Plane instead of the other sims in the tutorial.  I'm awaiting my APM 2.5 and want to try out the APM on a UAV that I created in PlaneMaker.  I'm…Continue

I know there have been several threads related to this but I have no found a definitive build log or instruction.  I'm designing a UAV and weighing my options for autopilot, telemetry, and OSD.…Continue

"Hi Hunter, this is a very interesting topic, I'm facing exact the same problem, but don't you need to take into account the UAV's attitude (yaw, pitch and roll)? I mean, don't these values affect the camera's angles?"

Overlaying GPS Coordinates for Camera Crosshairs

Posted on November 27, 2013 at 2:30am 28 Comments

Hey Guys!

I am working on a project to allow us to implement GPS coordinates for the location of the crosshairs of a PTZ camera, other wise known as Geo-pointing.  This will essentially give us the LAT/LONG of what we are looking at.  

I have found several methods to do this, but I'm looking…

Telemetry/Video over 4G/LTE Cellular link for Beyond-LOS Flight

Posted on April 16, 2013 at 8:42pm 22 Comments

I have a thought to use cellular technology to pipe video and data over a UDP connection.  This is nothing, however, I haven't seen a lot of support for the usage of 4G/LTE which allows up to 100mbps speeds.  Has anyone ever read up on this pico board?  I'ts available from min-box.com.  The same place…

I came across this while researching wireless solutions and seems very possible to create a long range WiFi connection between the GCS and aircraft using an onboard micro computer.

These are the specs that the company…

Relatively Inexpensive Thermal Imaging Gimbal M1D Micro

   After arriving in Texas, I've talked to several land owners who complain about feral hogs damaging their property.  I had a solution that would incorporate thermal imaging with a sUAS platform to track hog movement and patterns during the day and at night.  While doing research I came across this little baby,…

Pleasure to meet you, Hunter. Nice to see another military man here on DIYDrones. I, too, would like to design, build and sell drones possibly as a contractor... I just have to wait till I retire active duty. 5.5 years to go. Interested in collaborating a bit to see what we can come up with? I have 3 years of operational experience with the MQ-1 (1000+ hrs) and MQ-9 (600+ hrs) and 11 years aerospace maintenance prior to that. I can't talk too in depth about the operational side since I know more than the average user and some of it is still classified, but I would love to participate or start a project of my own. Interested to hear about your military experiences as well!

Hi Bryan,
I'd be very interested in collaborating. Like I said in my blog, I work with the Preds and Reapers daily and you guys every day at my job. So I know what you mean about the operational side. I'm headed to work now but my email is parri0923@gmail.com. We definitely should link up to see what great minds can do!
