Washington DC (SPX) Apr 28, 2010
5G International recently completed their rigorous Middle East testing programme of an improved navigation system on their 7m Interceptor Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV)
Following a successful development and testing of the MKII USV navigation system, three navigation controlmodes are now available offering:
+ autonomous - fully automatically following a preplanned mission
+ semi-autonomous - automatically following a preplanned mission with human intervention as required.
+ manual - full remote operation
In either of the autonomous modes, updates to the mission may be made at any time.
A standard feature the command and control system is its operation on dual fully encrypted frequencies offering redundancy and security.
There is the option of using multiple Ground Control Stations to increase the range of USV operations. The on board Command and Control Module communicates in full duplex mode over both frequencies, significantly increasing data throughput and bandwidth in transmitting and receiving data.
The USV maintains full preprogrammed control routines in the event of a failure in one or both of the radio links.
