Bingen, Wash.-based unmanned aircraft system provider Insitu, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Co., has released a new version of ICOMC2, the company's common command and control system.
Insitu says ICOMC2 enables a single operator to control multiple unmanned vehicles using small-footprint, mobile hardware and features an open-architecture design that users can customize with plug-ins and new applications.
ICOMC2 2.0, the company notes, includes a mission commander mode, which increases situational awareness and integrates with other C4ISR systems.
Insitu adds that ICOMC2 2.0 features a lightweight mapping engine, a full-featured software development kit, lower memory footprint for mobile usage and new video formats.
Through the ICOMC2 Registered Developers Program, the company reports that third parties receive support developing plug-ins for the system's core. The program also supports the University Partnerships Program, a solution for colleges and universities that want to offer courses or degrees in unmanned technology.
