Insitu’s Common Open Mission Management Command and Control (ICOMC2) is our revolutionary solution to controlling multiple unmanned aircraft with one ground control station and a single operator. ICOMC2’s open-architecture design allows users to customize it with plug-ins and new applications, making it easier to meet needs specific to your operation.
ICOMC2 ground station software is a small-footprint system that operates from a laptop or a device that can be easily worn and transported. The base ICOMC2 software system features a net-centric and open architecture with a fully supported Software Development Kit (SDK) that enables the system to be customized for your operational needs and system-specific requirements. The system can also scale up to effectively operate on large screens with several displays, providing larger audiences with an integrated picture of the area of operation.
Insitu’s command and control solutions feature a number of plug-ins that reduce operator workload while achieving superior results. Plug-ins expand or modify the capabilities of our GCS to meet your specific needs. Click on each plug-in to learn how you can customize this intuitive ground control software for better mission and operational outcomes.
Unmanned Vehicle Plug-in for Arducopter: Powerful command and control meets unmanned multicopter technology.
Search Plug-in: In development. Time is paramount in every search mission and ICOMC2’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: In development. Terrain variation and other conditions can interfere with the transmission of information, but ICOMC2’s RF Link Analysis Plug-in helps operators identify in advance where communications could be potentially compromised.
Airspace Management Plug-in: In development. Using an aircraft’s trajectory, vehicle information, and telemetry, ICOMC2’s Airspace Management Plug-in alerts operators of potential airspace violations by considering available airspace options and recognizing areas to avoid.
This tool enables users to exercise comprehensive command and control of this small, agile multirotor UAV. By utilizing ICOMC2 and Inexa Control’s flight modes, users can direct Arducopter to loiter or follow waypoints, as well as hold speed, altitude, and heading. The plug-in enables payload control, including determining stare points, as well as the setting of waypoint actions. And just like with Insitu’s other proven systems, ICOMC2 and Inexa Control allow users to maintain control of multiple Arducopter UAVs in permitted operational environments.
This tool helps operators create a search path based on standard search patterns, the search region, target size, and vehicle sensor capabilities. As the search is executed, overlays update based on vehicle sensor data while color coding tells operators which areas have already been scanned for more efficient and effective search missions.
Analyzing communication systems (RF links) to avoid potential intelligence gaps is made easier with this powerful tool. Information gathered from the analysis can be overlaid onto a 2D map that uses graphics to inform operators where system signals are anticipated to be strong or weak, resulting in higher levels of situational and operational awareness.
The Airspace Management Plug-in keeps you where you want to be and can be configured to alert operators of potential airspace violations, helping decision makers take corrective action before it becomes critical. This tool considers an aircraft’s trajectory, vehicle information, and flight plan to determine potential airspace violations and alerts operators using audible and visual alarms.
