Kongsberg Geospatial is set to introduce a new multi-domain control system for coordinating the use of UAS in the battlespace, the company announced on 27 May.

The military-focused version of the IRIS UxS fleet control station and airspace management system is based on its participation in the NATO STANAG 4817 standard for multi-domain control stations.

The new system collects and fuses data from a wide range of sensors: allowing operators to control multiple autonomous vehicles in a multi-domain mission theatre. This control system integrates different kinds of geospatial data and sensor input to create a composite operating picture which includes the airspace, 3D terrain, bathyscapy, and features from S-57 nautical charts.

The system leverages a real-time DDS bus architecture and sensor fusion technology that allows operators to simultaneously track and operate drones in the air, on the water and underwater.

The company’s IRIS UxS was first developed to help commercial UAS operators safely operate beyond visual line-of-sight.
