What can Skynode™GX do?
With a fully integrated flight controller and mission computer with U.S. Government certifications, Skynode™GX combines all the core components and connections needed to rapidly deploy the Auterion software stack on a varied range of vehicles.
Its compact form factor enhances ease of integration and optimises size, weight and power without compromising on capability. The latest FMU generation, FMUv6x, ensures access to the most mature technology in terms of performance, reliability and precision.
Skynode™GX is designed, assembled and supported in the United States and is fully compliant with the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, Sec 848.
NDAA compliant, open system standards
Built on a secure open source software base, using widely adopted industry standards including FMUv6x, MAVLink, and PX4
Pre-integrated payloads and radios
A variety of plug-and-play integrated cameras offer complete control, universal UI/UX and reduced cognitive burden; use a variety of tactical radios based on mission requirements
Through common APIs, third-party software companies can develop AuterionOS applications that add mission-specific capabilities, like object detection or GPS-denied navigation
Endless possibilities onboard
Run AI/ML and computer vision algorithms onboard and use the new Auterion SDK to develop your own applications for Skynode™GX
Built for multi-domain operations
Not just for drones, Skynode™GX is built for integration into diverse platforms, including ground robotics and watercraft. This facilitates multi-domain teaming through a common embedded software infrastructure and UI.
Streamline operations, reduce cognitive burden
From the operator to the tactical network
- Payloads are connected to and controlled by AuterionOS, reducing reliance on the ground datalink
- Common UI/UX across payload types, while exposing full payload functionality to the operator
- Deliberate handoff of control between pilot and observer ground control stations
- Advanced behaviors like follow-target
- Bidirectional communication with TAK via CoT
- Immediately disseminate media captured during the flight
- Real-time exchange of information with remote devices within the network
The complete platform.
Leverage the Auterion software platform by deploying your own mission-specific functionality on top.
Auterion GS offers full hardware and software support from U.S. citizens,
to help you enable defense customers to build a scalable fleet of autonomous systems.
