AP10.1

Automatic Control System for UAV with a takeoff weight of 100 kg up to 1500 kg

Overview

The AP10.1 autopilot system is designed to control surface, ground or airborne platforms automatically, semi-automatically or manually.

The system is configurable for the following platforms:
  • Standard airplane for automatic take-off and landing
  • Rotor-wings for automatic take-off and landing
  • Balloons, Blimps
  • USVs (boats)
  • UGVs (cars)

The AP10.1 can be used on aircraft with a minimum takeoff weight of 100 kg. For lighter aircraft, UAVOS offers variants to the 10.1 version such as the Mini version – AP10.2, or the Micro version – AP10.3.

Its main features are:
  • extended modular configuration
  • built-in anti-vibration platform
Most payload can be interfaced through:
  • 1-Wire
  • RS-232
  • RS-485
  • TTL UART
  • CAN

Main functions

  • Very small size and lightweight
  • ESD protection, -40..+80C operation
  • Leading edge components and technologies
  • Dead-reckoning, flight and navigation without GPS
  • Automatic take-off and automatic landing
  • Operating/flight mechanisms controls
  • Engine/power plant control
  • Semi-automatic control with automatic stabilization
  • Manual control over 928MHz from ground control station
  • Emergency mode
  • Payload control
  • Payload feedback
  • Gyro-stabilization mode for rotating platforms
  • Telemetry 10Hz with compressed stream, 100km LOS
  • Ground simulation mode – flight simulator
  • Operator training on flight simulator
  • Pre-flight and flight assignment testing
  • Onboard power control and monitoring
  • Power stabilization
  • Conversion of manned aircraft into UAV
  • Distribution, including emergency power supply mode
