The Problem This Solution Solves
Army PEO Aviation requires small unmanned air vehicle components that support the development and integration of a common system architecture for small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS). The components will be used to field a sUAS based upon an open architecture and modular design by providing best in breed software and/or hardware technologies. Desired component areas include autopilot software and firmware, payload interface, data link, user interface, communications protocol, and drone morphology.
Open Source Robotics provides open-source flight control software, best-in-class, vision-based autonomy through close integration with vision systems and autonomy software, as well as with open-source mission planning, execution, analysis tools to enable immediate benefit from sUAS.
