The following image shows the basic elements of the DSR flight interface for the Remote Operator (RO):
The Taskbar provides access to the different configuration and reporting options:
- Drones: provides a list of all drones that have connected to DSR. Active drones are highlighted and will appear on the map. If a drone does not have GPS lock (such as indoor tactical drones, you can still access it by clicking the three dots to the right of its entry).
- Launch Sites: lists all the launch sites set up for your organization. Click Add Launch Site to add a new one.
- Emergency Sites: lists all emergency sites set up for your organization. Click Add Emergency Site to add a new one.
- Controllers: lists all controllers connected to your local machine. You also can configure their settings.
- Geofences: lists all geofences set up for your organization. Click Add Geofence to create a new one.
- Contacts: provides access to the contacts and groups of contacts set up in your organization. Click Add New Contact or Add New Group to add new ones.
- Logs: shows a summary of DSR flights and all Calls for Service/Case Logs associated with that flight. There can be multiple CFS logs per flight.
The Taskbar will always stay visible, but the Side Menu can be collapsed to display more of the map.
The split between the map and the Live Drone Feed can be adjusted by clicking and dragging the Video Pane Handle in the middle of the border between both views.
The Live Drone Feed contains a the view from the drone.
The Drone Status Bar at the top of the Live Drone Feed pane displays current and next actions the drone is undertaking. You also can choose which Mission you are flying under, enter or copy a shared mission Code, specify a CFS/Case ID, and indicate if the drone is currently On Scene.
The Telemetry is similar to the one shown on the mobile device connected to the drone remote, except the Altitude indicator is shown on the left of the view and also provides an indication of how close the drone is to the maximum and minimum configured altitude.
The Alerts menu provides access to all alerts you have received. New alerts will pop up as they arrive, and the blue indicator shows how many alerts you have received in the current session.
The Pilot Status Bar indicates whether the RPIC or RO is in control of the aircraft, and whether the aircraft is in manual or autonomous mode. You can use the buttons to cancel the current autonomous action and to initiate a Return to Home. Once a flight is complete, you also can end the flight.
