Kongsberg Geospatial releases IRIS UxS 2.0

26th April 2019 - 17:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg Geospatial has released IRIS UxS 2.0, an upgraded version of its IRIS UxS fleet control station and airspace management system, the company announced on 23 April.

IRIS UxS 2.0 is powered by the new Kongsberg Geospatial TerraLens 9.1 engine, providing faster 3D map and terrain performance on large 4K displays. The system has an entirely new user interface, and a wide range of new features, including support for new sensors; an integrated live national airspace data feed; and integrated autopilots – allowing operators to control UAS directly from the IRIS system.

IRIS UxS provides UAS operators with enhanced airspace awareness, navigational tools, and deconfliction and air safety features for beyond visual line of site (BVLOS) operators, while providing airspace managers with an integrated airspace picture that consolidates data from a wide range of real-time data feeds and sensors.

The fleet control station technology enables multiple UAS to be monitored and controlled simultaneously by a single operator and provides real-time calculation of aircraft separation, airspace monitoring alerts and communication line-of-sight prediction to enable detect and avoid for safe BVLOS operations. IRIS UxS integrates a variety of real-time data feeds including ADS-B, local radar and National Airspace Feeds to calculate detect and avoid warnings.
