FUTURE VISION

 
NEAR-TERM VISION
After completion of testing phase, we have identified the following goals:

Completion and duplication of mobile command ground stations. This would greatly improve response time to the job sites through multiple crews. UAV deployment times would also be greatly reduced.

 

Produce specific airframes needs to complete the customer’s mission.

 

Set up our own imaging service bureau to massage the raw digital data we shoot. One of our Key team members has this skill set (Joe Cantrill).

 

Continue to improve reliability and flight duration.

 

Continue to improve flight distances and telemetry uplink/ distances. This may be through the use of cell phone data modems or sat phone uplinks.

MID-TERM VISION

We have begun pans for a total redesign of the current autopilot and mission software. This will be a major undertaking, but we have the team to accomplish the task.

 

The time is ripe to market a “next generation” autopilot that can benefit from a 32 bit system, more connectivity, better gyro sensors and cleaner written firmware.

 

The current system, as good as it is, is not without it’s problems. It is an open source project and does have some sloppy, non-cohesive code. The hardware also has room for improvement. It is an 8 bit system with some bottlenecks in the through-put.

 

Development Steps
a). Design and development of the new autopilot board.
b). Writing of the board’s firmware.
c).Writing of the mission planning software.
d).Test and validation of the system
e).Commercialization of the system

 

LONG TERM VISION

To be the major player in the UAS/UAV market that fits within the commercial range between “hobby” grade and “full blown military” grade systems.

 

The industry is still young yet poised to explode exponentially in the very near future.

 

With our current team’s skill set and distribution structure, we can develop and market a truly reliable and robust uas/uav system.
