Unmanned vehicles require high-performance, robust state estimation technology. The Athena® 111m integrated flight control system provides the navigation solution to a wide range of fixed-wing, ducted-fan and rotorcraft unmanned systems, including the U.S. Marine Corps RQ-21 Blackjack.
Offering you a lower unit cost to accommodate smaller unmanned systems, the integrated system of the Athena 111m incorporates a sensor suite that provides a full attitude, navigation and air data solution for use in vehicle flight-state measurement and control. Its onboard processor runs the algorithms necessary to provide this data to a range of signal input/output capabilities that enable it to integrate with aircraft systems.
Additionally, the 111m can support Athena flight control software, turning the integrated navigation system into a full UAS autopilot.
