Boeing/Insitu releases ground system for ArduCopter, 3DR Solo and IRIS+

Boeing's Insitu division has released a ground control system that supports Solo, Iris+ and other ArduCopter based drones. University of Nevada is now using it. 

  • Unmanned Vehicle Plug-in for Arducopter: Powerful command and control meets unmanned multicopter technology.

  • Search Plug-in: Time is paramount in every search mission and Inexa Control’s search plug-in helps operators plan and execute a fast, thorough search of an area using nationally recognized search patterns.

  • RF Link Analysis Plug-in: Terrain variation and other conditions can interfere with the transmission of information, but Inexa Control’s RF Link Analysis Plug-in helps operators identify in advance where communications could be potentially compromised.

  • Airspace Management Plug-in: Using an aircraft’s trajectory, vehicle information, and telemetry, Inexa Control’s Airspace Management Plug-in alerts operators of potential airspace violations by considering available airspace options and recognizing areas to avoid.

This is great, Where can you get it and how much will it cost?



Comment by Stone Bai on May 12, 2016 at 8:14am

I'd like to know that, too

Good to see Iris+ hanging out!

Can someone explain the benefits of Inexa control over any other GCS out there? 

I'm not trying to be sarcastic... I just don't see any new features other than the search plug in.

Looks pretty good.  It's got some features that I haven't seen before like the RF link analysis and airspace management plug-ins.  Very happy to see a big organisation like Boeing & Insitu using Ardupilot!

I agree Randy, its a joy see that despite all the different flight platforms which are available out there, that the major institutions (both scientific and industrial) often choose Ardupilot as the go-to solution on which to base their own projects. This is a great testimony of how awesome the Ardupilot platform is - all due to your continued efforts and those of all the devs on this awesome project. Boeing's endorsement of Ardupilot is great PR too!

Hey guys, my name is Greer and I’m the product manager for Inexa: Control.  We’ll be offering it later this year through Insitu’s website where you’ll be able to buy it online. No price details yet!

Welcome Greer! Great to hear that. Please post updates here.

looking forward to checking out. Will there be any discounts to FAA Accepted Test Center/Sites. I am with NMSU UAS Flight Test Center. We have a few PixHawk and APM Systems that could benefit from this software.

Great! But no fixed wing support :(
