This device is able to control on-board camera which is monitoring surveyed areas. Telemetry data describing a flight speed, an altitude and a location are sent from the UAV. This data are displayed using geodetic background which is included in portable device GDT (Ground Data Terminal). IRS and GDT terminals have own batteries and thus are independent on external power supply.
