CATEC extends its technological applications RPAS/UAS for the aerospace industry with a new system designed specifically for missions
Within their new technologies in the field of aircraft and unmanned systems (RPAS/UAS), CATEC has developed a "Mission Master" that lets easily tailor the configuration of an UAV to the specific needs of each specific application. This device allows to integrate very fast a wide variety of board sensors (cameras, thermal imaging, multispectral, LIDAR, etc.) and decouple the aerial platform of the systems needed to perform a mission.

In addition, the use of the "Mission Master" allows the components of the mission can be reused easily in different aerial platforms (UAV) and there is also the possibility to update part of the mission system without affecting the critical components of the aircraft.

The main features of this technology are the following:

• Processing Capacity: x86 CPU Intel Atom with two cores.
• Reduced Size: 62x78x142mm.
• Light Weight: 420 g.
• Box and robust connectors (including extended temperature range).
• High-capacity connectivity: four RS232/422, four USB two GbE ports and a slot MPCI.
• Hardware compatible with Windows, Linux, VxWorks and QNX.
• Large storage capacity (standard version with solid state hard drive 120 GB).
• Easy register a large volume of data from one or several board sensors and synchronized with the telemetry of the aircraft.
• Communications Library that transmits to the ground control station a channel digital video with synchronized telemetry.

For more information on this technology, you can contact the department of Avionics and UInmanned Systems at avionica@catec.aero.
