Skilligent software is successfully used for controlling a robotic aircraft. Our Thai partners are designing an innovative UAV autopilot. They use our software product as a programming framework for both onboard flight computer and for a ground control station which is basically a laptop with a joystick console and a radio modem.

It turned out that these days one can build a full-blown UAV autopilot by connecting together a bunch of off-the- shelf components. Very little soldering and no custom PCB design is required.

Here is a press release talking about the RPV flight control system that was created during the project. Here is a video of the RPV landing. More videos to follow as the system takes off several times a day to collect data needed for autopilot design.
