Abstract. The Photogrammetry Department of MIIGAIK is developing the "Automated Information Generation System" (AIGS), which is designed to carry out automatic aerial survey of the object using a drone and obtain documents about the terrain (orthophotos, DMR, etc.). The system is based on a robotic mobile platform with a navigation system installed on it, a manipulator and a lifting portal. The manipulator has three degrees of freedom and is designed to manipulate the necessary when replacing automatically the battery in the UAV. The lifting portal is designed to load and fix UAVs on the platform. The robotic station is able to work both individually and as part of a network of stations. Complexes are evenly distributed on the territory where aerial photography or monitoring will be carried out. The operator is in the office, forms the job and sends it over the Internet channel, at the station. The job is run automatically on schedule.
