AP10.2 - Automatic control system for UAV (Mini version)

Current hardware version:AP10.2 - 468339.102.00 Specification (PDF)
Autopilot software documentation

Application

AP10.2 system purpose is to control moving objects automatically, semi-automatically or manually.
At the moment we have developed the system configurations for the following unnamed systems:

- airplanes for take-off from a hand and  landing with a parachute in automatic mode
- airplanes for take-off from the runway and landing on the runway in automatic mode
- helicopters for take-off and landing in automatic mode
- carriers lighter than the air

AP10.2 is being used for installation on aircrafts up to 50 kg (mini version), it has such benefits:
- reduced weight and dimensions (avionics - 220 g)
- reduced energy consumption
- IP rating IP67

Almost any payload type can be connected and controlled through the interfaces:
- 1-Wire
- RS-232
- RS-485
- TTL UART
- CAN

Main functions of the AP10.2 (automatic control system of moving objects):

-automatic control of a moving object
- operating mechanisms control
- engine control
- semi-automatic control with automatic stabilization of a moving object
- manual control via the main 928MHz communication channel
- from ground control station
- from the pilot RC console via RM, 2,4d/Hz channel
- control of a moving object in emergency mode
- payload control
- payload feedback
- rotating platforms control in gyro stabilization mode under AP9.0 control
- telemetrics receipt and transfer between control GCU and a moving object
- ground simulation mode – flight simulator
- operator training in flight simulator with a/c virtual model downloaded
- pre-flight a/c and flight assignment testing
- onboard power control
- power stabilization
- conversion
- distribution, including emergency power supply mode
- onboard power monitoring
