Phoenix-based mission-critical software and systems developer Kutta Technologies Inc. has unveiled three unmanned aircraft system (UAS) command and control products.
The products include a UAS control segment (UCS)-compliant Bi-Directional Remote Video Terminal, a STANAG Level 5 handheld ground control station (GCS) and a lightweight MILSPEC computer, the KRC-100.
According to Kutta, when its UGCS-400 is coupled with the KRC-100, the result is a full MILSPEC, STANAG Level 5 GCS for small UAS that weigh less than 15 pounds, including radio and battery. The company notes that the UGCS-400 still contains all the features of the previous UGCS, including supervised usage mode, but it is now lighter, faster and more efficient.
In addition, by leveraging the power of the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s UCS open architecture, the UGCS-400 can be scaled from a handheld GCS to a larger mobile or fixed-site system capable of controlling multiple unmanned vehicles, Kutta says.
