Portable Operations Center

The NASC Portable Operations Center (POC) is a rugged, rack mounted or desk top use Piccolo-based Ground Control Station (GCS). The NASC POC enables fully autonomous or manual UAV flight operations. The GCS incorporates primary and secondary Command and Control (C2), video downlink, GPS, and Differential GPS. This rack mounted GCS provides pilot selectable Directional and Omni Antennas for each C2 and video downlink frequency. The directional antennas are utilized for long range C2 and video downlink with a 360° Pan/Tilt Tracker Head on a heavy duty tripod. This combination is used for max operational LOS range. The Omni anten­nas are mounted on tripods and used for close range C2 and video downlink. The GCS interfaces with a laptop, desktop, or rack mounted computer loaded with Cloud Cap Piccolo Command Center (PCC) software. Manual control is accomplished through a cable that connects the pilot control box directly to the GCS. PCC software, NASC EFIS (Electronic Flight Information System), NASC HUD (Heads-Up Display), and Nose Camera Video are displayed on the laptop and/or external displays that provide flight critical information.
