AP 10.3

Automatic Control System for UAV less then 15 kg


The AP 10.3 system is designed to control a surface, ground or airborne platform automatically, semi-automatically or manually.

The system is configurable for the following platforms:
  • Fixed-wing aircraft
  • Rotary-wing aircraft
The AP 10.3 was designed for installation on vehicles weighing less than 15 kg (Micro version) and has the following advantages:
  • reduced form factors (avionics weight less then 130 g)
  • reduced energy consumption
Most payload can be interfaced through:
  • 1-Wire
  • RS-232
  • RS-485
  • CAN

Main functions
