What is Cloud Ground Control?

Cloud Ground Control is a cloud based ground control station for operators and manufacturers of uncrewed air, land and sea vehicles. It enables pilots and mission commanders to securely configure, monitor and manage multiple autonomous vehicles via a web browser.

Vehicles connect to the platform either though our mobile app or with CGConnect – our stand alone on-board cellular micro-modem. Using a 4G/5G cellular network, CGConnect enables remote real time viewing and control of almost any brand and combination of uncrewed drones, ground rovers and surface vessels.

How does it benefit users?

Many industries are rapidly expanding the use of drones across daily operations. While the energy, construction and agriculture industries top the list of early adopters, in the near future drone technology will arguably impact almost every sector of the global economy.

However as drone applications grow, so to do operation costs, exposure to risks and requisite compliance obligations. As missions grow in scale and complexity, execution becomes more difficult due to communication, coordination and system interoperability issues.

By enabling drones, ground vehicles and sea vessels to operate in tandem and communicate as a collective to central command, the Cloud Ground Control platform addresses these issues.

Users enjoy the benefit of:

  • Enhanced situational awareness, transparency and improved operational coordination
  • Streamlined mission execution
  • Avoiding costly errors and time consuming reruns
  • A safer working environment
  • Optimised mission outcomes.
