I think Integration of UAvionics ADS-B inside Mission planner is done on a fly and it is really poorly integrated. I would suggest the following enhancement asap:
- Under Mission planner HUD, there should be an option to display ADS-B Title.
- Next Display things such as as ADS-B is functioning or its “On”. Right now no one can tell once you are airborne if ADS-B is still functioning and its status or went bad etc. unless there is an aircraft nearby.
- Count the number of air craft detected recently within the defined radius.
- May be a circle around the UAV, so the pilot can visually see how many aircraft are inside the ADS-B receiving range. Yes, I understand avoidance algorithm is automatic, but have a visual view is always good.
As an operator such information is crucial inside the ground station.
