The laptop portable configuration of our Ground Control System (GCS) provides all of the capabilities of our fixed and transportable control systems. The system is capable of controlling a range of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), high-performance aerial targets, and unmanned aerial combat systems. The system can support multiple full-size and/or sub-scale fixed and rotary wing aerial platforms, land, and sea surface vehicles as well. The vehicle control range can extend to 200 nm line of site (LOS), or up to 330 nm if using the optionally available radio-relay system.
Kratos’ unique modular systems approach allows the system to be tailored to specific requirements by purchasing only as much capability as needed and additional consoles and modules can be easily added in the field. Vehicle command and telemetry configurations, telemetry displays, and range maps can all be configured to custom preferences.
The system operates independent of data link types and can accommodate multiple data links and/or multiple frequencies simultaneously. The RF module can be connected directly via Ethernet, or remotely to network through a router (e.g. T1, ISDN, microwave, etc.).
Kratos also offers a transportable S280 Shelter configuration of the command and control system, which is a convenient option for multi-range C2 requirements. This configuration is currently deployed and supporting operations for the U.S. Army and various international customers.
