Flight Control System
The Flight Control System (FCS) consists of the Advanced Flight Control Computer (AFCU) system, the Air Data Terminal (ADT) and the Ground Data Terminal (GDT) as well as a complete sensor suite onboard the aircraft.
Flight Safety Monitor Computer (FSMC)
A Flight Safety Monitoring Computer (FSMC) containing the VSM, implemented to Design Assurance Level DO-178B, DAL C (or higher if specified), controls all flight critical information and supervises information and commands sent to and from the UCS. To assure flight safety of the UAS, the Flight Safety Critical Computer can be used in a redundant setup.
Core UAV Control Station (CUCS)
The UAS Control Station (UCS) is built as a scalable system that enables the operators to focus on the mission at hand with a clear and simple way of controlling both air vehicle and payload.
The UCS is compatible with the NATO STANAG 4586 and has a scalable and well defined user interoperability between Level 5 (full operations including Take-Off and Landing) down to Level 3 (Payload Control) or Level 2 (payload imagery and vehicle telemetry reception).
The communication between the Air Vehicle and UCS is performed with direct links for mission payload data as well as command and control (C2) data.
The C2 data link is redundant (two different frequencies mandatory) to ensure a safe and reliable communication. To facilitate communication and integration, omni directional antennas are used as standard components for this communication (only up to 5km LOS range).
