Combating threats against a nation’s sovereignty, its critical assets or its people requires the effective use of the best technologies to enable decision makers to take appropriate and focused action. The ParagonC4I software suite creates an operational picture with rich intelligence and real-time information. It binds unmanned systems, manned platforms, and other resources to form a unified force. Its net-centric design improves information sharing, collaboration and self-synchronisation, enabling forces to act as a single entity to effectively combat these threats.
The S-PLANE xKIT is a comprehensive solution that offers a means to rapidly convert a manned aircraft into an Optionally Piloted Vehicle (OPV) or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Built on proven and rugged xSERIES technology the xKIT can be readily applied to almost any fixed or rotary wing aircraft. Seamless integration with third party payloads and communications links brings high-end, versatile autonomous systems of the future to today.
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) offer new and innovative solutions to both civil and military problems. From border patrol to maritime surveillance, intelligence gathering, security, aerial surveying, payload delivery, asset inspection, policing, fire monitoring and many other applications, UASs are arguably aviation’s next disruptive technology, set to revolutionise flight and its applications. This is particularly true with regard to UAS integration into civil airspace and the impacts, and enormous advantages, thereof.
S-PLANE’s xSERIES of UAV subsystems represents the state-of-the-art in avionics and automation solutions for UAVs. The xSERIES was specifically designed from the ground up to be modular, scalable and rugged to robustly accommodate the wide variety of form, fit and function requirements faced by UAV subsystems. The result is a series of subsystems able to precisely meet the functional, physical and safety requirements of almost any UAV, while providing the latest in technology, standards, reliability and maintainability.
S-PLANE’s xSERIES represents the state-of-the-art in avionics and automation solutions for UAVs. The nxSERIES is the Nano extension of this product family catering for small-form-factor, SWaP sensitive systems. Reliability, functionality, flexibility and certifiability are all key design elements carried across to the nxSERIES architecture. The result is a set of subsystems able to accommodate the strict physical and electrical requirements of SWaP sensitive systems, while continuing to provide the latest in technology and functionality, responsibly and reliably.
Subsystem verification tools are an integral part of any modern integration, verification and validation environment. Used for subsystem level testing, acceptance, qualification, integration and maintenance, these invaluable tools reduce development and verification life cycle costs and ensure subsystem and ultimately system-level safety.
