RPAS SUITE: technology transfer for manufacturers and operators with aircrafts and unmanned systems
CATEC, trough its area of Avionics and Unmanned Systems, is working to develop new technologies related to control systems and applications with UAV's (as well named RPAS). Thus, our Center has set up and prepared a package of various technologies, called RPAS SUITE, which can be adapted for every manufacturer or operating company of unmanned systems, providing specific solutions to the needs of each client.

This package consists of an autopilot, a software of the control station and a payload manager. All these elements have a high flexibility that allows to adapt the system in a very short time to multiple applications and systems. The autopilot has redundancy in hardware, high performance navigation sensors and a great computing capacity. The ground control station (GCS) has an API and a plugin system available that allow to create new functions easily.

Finally, the payload manager has a large storage capacity and multiple input / output devices that allow to connect it to almost any sensor boarded. Indeed, this system has been validated in multiple R&D projects in recent years and it has been used successfully for inspection applications and precision farming using UAVs.
