UAS Weekly: Delair & ECA Group a new ground station for multi drone mission
Published in UAS Weekly, November 2017.
Based in Toulon, ECA Group has just developed, in partnership with the company Delair, a Ground Control station allowing to simultaneously maneuver and supervise two drones in order to combine the observations made by the two aircraft in their field of action, especially over the sea:
The aim of both partners is to propose new possibilities of gathering information for military, civil security sector or border guards.
nks to the new GCS, collaborative drone missions are gaining considerably in performance. This type of mission now becomes easier to manage via a single interface and by a single operator. With the new ground station the intervention forces gain especially in precision of information and intervention reactivity.”, says Francis Duruflé, sales manager for Aerial Drones business at ECA Group.
“The new multiplatform ground station will also allow its users to optimize the training of their UAV pilot crews as well as the ability for the same pilot to switch from one drone to another in a very intuitive way. Another important criterion, the logistic constraint of the material to be transported, which will be reduced by using the new GCS.”, says Charles-Etienne Gariel, sales director at Delair.
