24th April 2019 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg Geospatial’s IRIS UxS fleet control station (FCS) has been integrated with MicroPilot’s MP2x28 series autopilots, the company announced on 16 April.

The integration will provide UAS operators using MicroPilot autopilots the ability to conduct safe beyond visual line of site (BVLOS) operations.

The Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS UxS FCS 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 communicates line-of-sight prediction to enable detect and avoid for safe BVLOS operations.

IRIS FCS integrates a variety of real-time data feeds including ADS-B, local radar and National Airspace Feeds to calculate detect and avoid warnings. IRIS provides real-time 2D and 3D visualisation of airborne track and weather data, as well as geo-fencing capabilities.

MicroPilot develops and manufactures high-reliability autopilots for fixed, rotary wing and hybrid UAVs.
