The Hermes Universal Ground Control Station is common to all Hermes UAV platforms and can be mobile or fixed, standard size or down-sized. Its side-by-side identical and redundant operator consoles feature ruggedized COTS H/W and commercial S/W tools for quick and easy mission planning, management and control. Built-in data exploitation and dissemination and an advanced system concept allow “single-operator” GCS operation.
The UGCS is built to enable the full control of any type of UAV. It provides full mission debriefing and simulation as well as in-flight mission editing and payload control. The UGCS system includes a ground data terminal, a remote video terminal and a flight line tester/loader. STANAG 4586 interoperability capability is optional.
