Ground Control Station

GCase

A handy, waterproof Peli case housing the electronics necessary to operate the GTRACK and to communicate with the UAV.

A System Ground Control Station that is simple, compact, rugged and easy to carry and deploy.

The GCASE serves as the connection point in the system for the UAV.

New and advanced Ground Control Case incorporates the following main items:

  • Ground Control Unit for commanding the autopilot onboard the UAV. Up to 4 channels for multi-UAV operation.
  • VISIONAIR PREMIUM software running on a ruggedized laptop. (UAV Navigation)
  • Battery with up to 13h operation. (Also LCD battery level indicator).
  • Joystick for manual operation.
  • Two Ethernet outputs.
  • The Components are housed in a rugged Peli Case

Alpha Unmanned Systems works with VISIONAIR, a UAV Navigation software product that has the following characteristics:

  • Visionair Mission software is designed with an all-important goal: “Fly the camera, not the UAV”.
  • Visionair software helps avoid distractions unrelated to the main mission, with fully automatic flight where minimal operator input is required.
  • The software is highly intuitive, easy to install in any commercial PC with low hardware requirements, a Windows-style design, point & click operation with simple menus.
  • Typically a non-experienced operator requires less than one week to be fully trained.
  • Advanced automatic flight modes provide exceptional ease of operation for non-expert operators even during emergencies, communications loss, or adverse meteorological conditions.

GTrack

A completely new design based on feedback from operational experience and the former GTRACK.

With two rotation axis, maximum performance is assured in all conditions. The compact and lightweight design has been developed in compliance with the IP67 standards. It is easy to integrate in vehicles, vessels and other devices.

High throughput combined with directive antenna and tracking system are the right combination to achieve a superior range.

Both video link and telemetry data are encrypted and operate at a frequency of 2.4Ghz with a range up to 30 Km.

This antenna is very easy to set up on its light and robust aluminum tripod, needing only a single cable to connect to the GCASE control case.

The GTRACK is simple to set up: just ensure that the unit is pointing North (with the supplied compass) and connect the single system cable to the GCASE.
