Rockwell Collins today introduced the GPC-3000, a small mission computer that offers UAS customers advanced mission capabilities with unmatched security features.
“UAS customers will benefit from a host of new capabilities that are housed within the GPC-3000,” said Dave Schreck, director of UAS and Control Technologies for Rockwell Collins. “We’re leveraging our expertise in open systems architecture, Multi-Level Security and sensor fusion; bringing them to bear into this product offering.”
The computational horsepower of the GPC-3000, in conjunction with Rockwell Collins’ robust software environment, enables hosting a variety of advanced mission and payload applications, including digital video recording and playback, multi-payload sensor fusion and other applications for intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance operations.
In addition, the small form factor GPC-3000 uniquely includes Rockwell Collins’ SecureOneTM cross domain technologies that enable trusted multi-classification level information sharing, and a computing environment that will support reuse of software capabilities as defined by the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACETM) Consortium.
AAI Unmanned Aircraft Systems’ Shadow® Tactical Unmanned Aircraft System will be the launch platform for the GPC-3000. Its predecessor, the GPC-2000, is being fielded on AAI Unmanned Aircraft Systems’ most recent Shadow RQ-7B configuration, an upgraded system dubbed Shadow V2 by AAI’s U.S. Army customer.
