Abstract In the report the specialized software product called "Navigation" is considered. The product made by the authors is oriented for investigation and development of computer vision algorithms for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) navigation. Software provides the modeling of video data from the board of UAV, realizes the technology of flight tasks preparation and allows to apply some algorithms for estimation position and course of UAV. In this work the software structure and its functionality are considered. Short description of video analyze methods is also presented.
