UAV Navigation's flight control systems manage alternative landing sites

VECTOR autopilot can manage alternative landing sites

An air mission — both manned and unmanned systems — involve a series of complex operations that are influenced by numerous factors. As most of these factors are way too dynamic and beyond human control, it can cause a roadblock or even lead to a complete failure of the mission.

This is further accentuated when the platform operates Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) in which reaction times are considerably reduced. This is when only professional guidance, navigation, and a versatile flight control system can help complete the mission.


UAV Navigation has become a benchmark in the unmanned aerial vehicles sector, due to its extensive experience. Over the years, UAV Navigation has accumulated enormous expertise which is evident through the numerous flight hours that we have put in. These flight hours were put into real operating environments across the globe.

As a result, we are fully aware of client requirements on various fronts such as technical, operational, and legislative challenges that our solutions need to help overcome. In our constant pursuit for improvement, we continue to work on developing new and advanced logic that allows us to carry out complex and demanding operations with our flight control system.

One of these capabilities is the VECTOR autopilot, which can manage multiple alternative flights or landing plans. Once the alternative flight plans are defined during the commencement of the mission, the system will be able to automatically respond to the different contingencies that occur despite not having a communication link with the operator. 

In the same way, the system can be configured so that, in case of a contingency during the flight, the system automatically switches to a pre-configured set of instructions. This can be strategically planned to allow some time to the operator, in order to carry out corrective actions or actions to mitigate the potential failures. However, in the absolute absence of any direction, the autopilot would land autonomously, in order to uphold the integrity of the system.

UAV Navigation understands the challenges faced by our clients and designs workable flight control solutions. With vast experience in the aeronautical industry, we improve our flight control solutions from time to time.
