Payload importing/exporting

The payload profile import/export feature allows easy adding profiles for cameras that are not in UgCS by default. This can be used by both - payload manufacturers as well as customers using custom payload with UgCS.

The camera parameters in UgCS include sensor size, focal distance, and minimum triggering interval. Correct payload parameters are necessary to ensure proper overlap between images, accurate flight altitude for the set GSD, and less frequent triggering of the camera than it physically allows.
