UAVOS has introduced a new Portable Ground Control Station (PGCS 3) implemented as a console with controls collected on the ergonomic control panel.
In its basic configuration, it comes with a military-grade rugged Getac X500 laptop and has the ability to integrate different 15” laptop computer models to make the system more versatile.
The PGCS 3 is a detachable computer and a console with additional controls and is fully compatible with UAVOS autopilot.
Console joysticks, push-buttons and switches are industrial water-proofed units while the panel is equipped with a quick-release mechanism for docking the laptop.
It is designed to monitor and control UAV, as well as to display live video streaming from UAV.
The station is designed for simultaneous work with an aircraft carrying a payload.
Aliaksei Stratsilatau, UAVOS chairman of the board and lead developer, commented: “PGCS 3 is another example of UAVOS developing industry-grade technology that supports our customers’ unique needs.”
He added: “The system incorporates features and technologies such as fail-safe features and redundancy, moisture resistance and the ability to operate in a wide range of temperatures – for mission flexibility, scalability, and ease of use, thus making it universally capable for the wide range of future projects.”
