Ground Control Station
The Altus GCS is a self contained, battery powered command and control system featuring a MS Surface Pro Tablet. Flight planning can be simply conducted on the Surface Pro, or performed prior on any other workstation and simply uploaded. The GCS runs permanently in a secure node-locked mode, and there is likewise no live link to any server or cloud computing environment.
Base maps and terrain data can be uploaded for the flight planning interface, or the default is Google Earth, which can cached for flexible use where internet connection is not easily established.
The control interface is very simple and is consistent across all Altus platforms, Multirotor and Helicopter alike.
