Moog Crossbow, a wholly owned subsidiary of precision control components and systems manufacturer Moog Inc., has introduced the GNC1000, an integrated guidance, navigation and control system for unmanned vehicles.
According to Moog, the GNC1000 features a flight control computer, autopilot, actuation control, attitude heading and reference system, and air data system. The company adds that the control system is a customizable solution that integrates key features from multiple avionics boxes into a single compact unit.
The GNC1000, Moog notes, includes a user-configurable PowerPC-based platform with flexible I/O for hosting high-level vehicle functionality. In addition, the company says the solution is compact and lightweight and uses less than 7 W of power.
‘Because of its highly configurable nature, the GNC1000 is easily integrated into a variety of vehicle architectures, including platforms designed for air, land and sea,’ comments Roger Shuler, Moog Crossbow business unit director.
