Piccolo autopilots and TASE Imaging Systems are the ideal solution for collecting meteorological or map data over long distances with an unmanned aircraft.
Piccolo Flight Management Systems natively support Iridium satellite communications by providing meteorological data and command and control for UAVs that are on long-distance, beyond line-of-sight flights.
TASE Imaging Systems provide geo-pointing, allowing accurate location of objects of interest. TASE gimbal Path-track functionality allows efficient autonomous mapping of coastlines, rivers, wetlands, in ways that would otherwise be difficult, have negative environmental impacts, or be manually intensive. Mosaiced mapping functionality provides Google-earth / GIS format maps for near-real-time analysis.
