Sensor Integrity

George uses the highest-quality GPS, C2 Radio, airspeed, Detect and Avoid (DAA), and military grade geomagnetic sensors for unprecedented accuracy and platform integrity. George’s onboard sensor safety processor monitors system health and will deploy emergency measures, such as a parachute, in the unlikely event of a failure.

Built on a familiar architecture

George is built on the trusted and proven CubePilot autopilot. Migrate your existing Ardupilot or PX4 software and configuration to George’s robust certifiable platform.

Lightweight and low power consumption

UAS have limited energy resources to support your mission. George is engineered specifically to minimize size, weight, and power consumption for longer flight times and larger payloads.

Certifiable and tested to aviation standards

We’ve brought the same rigorous safety standards to UAS that have ensured aviation as the safest form of transportation. George is engineered to DO-160G and MIL-810H environmental standards, and designed to meet DO-178C / DO-254 DAL C.

+ Environmental Qualifications

SkyLine Cloud-Based C2 Compatible

Available with an integrated ISM band radio or upgradable to SkyLink for C-band protected-spectrum. Connect to skyStation2 ground radios for reliable, scalable, cloud-managed BVLOS missions.

Detect and Avoid
(DAA) Ready

George is available with integrated ADS-B IN or by adding pingRX Pro to see nearby aircraft. For high altitude and mission-critical operations, add the ping200X Mode S Transponder with ADS-B to be seen by surrounding aircraft and for access to controlled airspace.

Hardened interfaces and power supplies

Level up from hobby-grade autopilots, with the same reliability and testing that ensures manned aircraft fly safely. All interfaces are subjected to extensive testing for normal and abnormal power conditions, lightning, and interference rejection. George is ready to meet your mission conditions.

Enterprise Flight Control Software

George’s integrated radio architecture allows for easy control via a skyStation2 ground radio station using your favorite control software. Develop, prototype, and launch your platform using popular flight control software such as the Auterion Enterprise PX4.
