AIRCRAFT AUTOMATION SOLUTIONS

CERTIFICATION-READY, REDUNDANT, FLIGHT-CRITICAL DESIGN, FULLY CUSTOMISABLE: With S-PLANE’s Aircraft Automation Solutions, airframes designed for manned or for unmanned operation are fully automated to become Unmanned or Optionally Piloted Vehicles (UAVs and OPVs). This includes mini-UAVs, Tactical UAVs and MALE UAVs, and extends to manned aircraft. The primary building blocks of these solutions are S-PLANE’s state of the art, reliable and redundant nxFCU and xKIT certification-ready products, combined with system engineering, integration, flight testing and certification support.

COMMUNICATION SOLUTIONS

REDUNDANT, FLIGHT-CRITICAL DESIGN, FULLY CUSTOMISABLE: With S-PLANE’s Communication Solutions, manned and unmanned aircraft enjoy exceptional RF link connectivity in both Line of Sight (LOS) and non-LOS environments. The primary building blocks of these solutions are S-PLANE’s TRACKER 100+ and 150+ integrated antenna tracker products and industry-leading Satellite and Line-of-Sight communication links. S-PLANE provides system engineering, integration, flight testing and certification support in order to realise complete Communication Solutions.

GROUND CONTROL SOLUTIONS

REDUNDANT, FLIGHT-CRITICAL DESIGN, FULLY CUSTOMISABLE: Multi-vehicle Ground Control is provided via a rugged and transportable Tactical Deployment Unit (TDU) serving as the heart of any ISR Ground Control Station (GCS). The TDU provides complete Command and Control (C2) functionality, connectivity between the payload operator in the GCS and the on-board pilot (if the aircraft is manned), and mission and payload situational awareness to the aircraft and payload operators via S-PLANE’s ParagonC2 and ParagonISR appliances. ParagonC2 serves as the C2 appliance for mission and aircraft management and facilitaties remote piloting.

SIMULATION SOLUTIONS

FULLY CUSTOMISABLE: S-PLANE’s Automation Solutions are supported by sophisticated Simulation Solutions, including Flight and Mission Simulation and Hardware-In-the-Loop Simulation (HILS). Flight and Mission Simulation is integral to S-PLANE’s Tactical Deployment Unit (TDU), normally installed within a Ground Control Station (GCS). This type of simulation is used for training purposes and to allow operators to optimise and practice real missions before they are flown. HILS is an essential modern tool for integration and testing. At S-PLANE, HILS supports automated execution of acceptance tests as part of an efficient system engineering tool chain.
