UAV Avionics from UAV Navigation
December 2, 2012
The LCAP GPS and Air Data System (ADS)-aided avionics from UAV Navigation, Madrid, Spain, is for mini UAVs, hand-launched helicopters, and other high-performance UAVS that may need to be mass-produced economically. The LCAP uses the company's AH01 MEMS-based integrated AHRS and INS, which weighs <2 g and includes triaxial gyros with an ARM Cortex-M0 SoC. In addition to the AH01, the LCAP includes a flight control CPU that hosts the control software, a high-performance GPS module, ADS, and interfaces including analog and digital I/O, PWM, UART, CAN, and Ethernet. You can also fit the LCAP with additional external sensors such as radar altimeters or magnetometers.
