So far I have been working on the general architecture of the ground station as well as some Google Earth functionality.
The ground station's architecture is centered around "missions", a mission is a collection of information pertaining to a single flight.
A mission currently contains the following information.
- Flight initialisation information (i.e. where do you want to start from).
- Flight waypoints.
- Mission Boundaries.
- Points of interest.
- Recorded flight data (recorded path, speed etc).
The following series of screen shots shows the flow of the ground station program from initialisation to main interface.
