Take Flight with UAV Integration for Axiom Multifunction Displays

LightHouse 3 for Raymarine Axiom systems offers fully integrated control of select DJI Mavic drones.

Every boater has wished for a birds-eye view of their surroundings at some time. That wish has finally been granted with Raymarine’s Axiom UAV application that brings together the power of advanced marine electronics and advanced Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs.)

The Axiom UAV app automates many common tasks including launch, airborne imaging, in-flight navigation, and return-to boat. Fishing and cruising boats alike can greatly benefit from having this added aerial imaging platform integrated onboard their Axiom navigation display.

Virtual Tuna Tower

Use Axiom UAV as a virtual tuna tower. Launch the Mavic Pro and use the UAV camera to scout for fish in the water ahead of the boat. When fitted with an optional polarized lens, the Mavic Pro’s 4K UHD camera system can see gamefish, baitfish, weed lines, sandbars, reefs and more.

Capture The Action

Capture the action of landing trophy fish. Use Axiom UAV’s Fish-On feature to instantly launch the UAV, start video recording, and automatically fly the camera in an orbit around the boat. Convenient on-screen controls let you fine-tune the UAV’s altitude, orbit radius, orbit speed and camera angle.

Scout Ahead with UAV Goto

Fly to points of interest, waypoints, or chart locations. Use the UAV GOTO command on your chartplotter to send the UAV out on a mission. Using GPS navigation, the Mavic Pro will fly to the precise location you selected and hover on station. While airborne you can see the UAV on your navigation chart along with its course, speed, altitude and camera orientation.

Real-Time UAV Telemetry

Fly with confidence and stay informed. The Axiom UAV app provides real-time telemetry and status for the Mavic Pro drone while in-flight. Altitude, distance, speed, battery level, flight time remaining, signal levels, airspace advisories and more are all clearly displayed on the Axiom screen.

The Axiom UAV app is compatible with the following DJI models:
•DJI Mavic Pro (Requires LightHouse 3.6 or higher)
•DJI Mavic Pro Platinum (Requires LightHouse 3.6 or higher)
•DJI Mavic 2 (Requires LightHouse 3.9 or higher)
•DJI Mavic 2 Zoom (Requires LightHouse 3.9 or higher)

Note: Raymarine’s Axiom UAV app has not been certified for use with any other models of DJI drones including Spark, Mavic Air or Mavic Mini. Raymarine is dedicated to continuous product improvement, so additional models may be added in the future. The latest edition of the LightHouse 3 Advanced Operating Handbook will always have the most up-to-date listing of compatible drone models.
