Alert Audioclips

Alert Audioclips are used to manage audio files used on the application. They can be associated with system alerts on the Workspace configuration. There are nine audio files plus the alert_audioclip. In order to substitute an audio file for another one, the “Change” button displays a browser to select a mp3/wav file stored in the computer. Besides, it is possible to return to the standard alert by clicking “Default”. To configure the alerts on a certain scenario visit section 5.3

Terrain Height

In order to perform the altitude estimation, Veronte installs a GIS (Geographic Information System) consisted of two meshes. When creating a mission, the terrain altitude on the mission area is automatically downloaded from the internet.

If the flight operation is carried out in an area where there is not internet connection, the altitude information can be downloaded a priori.

Selecting the button highlighted in the figure the downloading option is active and now by clicking in each quadrant the height information of that zone is charged on the system, allowing its future use when not having Internet connection.

There are two providers of altitude information in Pipe. The first one is the SRTM3 (shuttle radar topographic mission 3) which contains the altitude information for the territories outside the United States (the number 1 is for USA). The other one is a server created by Embention with altitude information of areas that do not appear on the SRTM such as Iceland.

Pipe also provides the option of introducing a custom terrain file. Clicking on “Add” appears a menu with two options to charge a terrain file in the system: Local and Remote. Local allows selecting  a file from the computer, while Remote gives the option to introduce a URL (Uniform Resource Identifier) of an altitude provider  from both a web or FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server.
