The Portable Ground Control Station 3 (PGCS 3) is based on a console with controls and a docking interface for a military-grade rugged Getac X500 laptop computer. All main UAV and payload controls are collected on the ergonomic control panel. Console joysticks, push-buttons and switches are industrial water-proofed units. Console housing is made of aluminum alloy.
The ability to integrate different 15” laptop computer models makes the system even more versatile platform to use.
PGCS 3 can be used as a simulator. A digital modem integrated into the UAVOS system provides UAV control without using an external antenna complex. UAVOS has also developed a switching and power supply board which allows the PGCS 3 to work from various power sources, as well as to charge the docked computer.
PGCS 3 provides:
Real-time telemetry information from the UAV/platform
Reception, recording, storage and playback of payload information with real time display
