Auterion Releases Improved Operating System and Mission Control Software
by DRONELIFE Staff Writer Ian M. Crosby
Open source operating system developer Auterion has released new and improved versions of the Auterion Operating System (OS) and the Auterion Mission Control (AMC), providing simplified operations and an enhanced user experience for users performing Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations.
Auterion’s New Drone OS: A More Seamless Experience
The integration of Auterion’s platform components, the precise trajectory patterns and payload command triggers made possible by AMC, and the onboard software-managed payload behavior make conducting operations within extended and dynamic environments significantly easier.
“Our team works hard to offer operators a seamless experience on their missions by integrating and simplifying every aspect of drone hardware and software,” said Auterion’s vice president of engineering, Markus Achtelik. “We strive for autonomy so that our users can feel empowered and safe.”
This new release enables total integration with NextVision cameras such as the NextVision Raptor, a lightweight, long-range dual EO-IR stabilized camera turret with significant range increase and zoom. The integrated camera and gimbal features an electro-optical sensor with 80x zoom and infrared capability, resulting in increased situational awareness.
Operators must perform numerous actions to receive the most benefits from ISR missions. This update enables the software to carry out those actions autonomously, readjusting its trajectory to keep a target in the field of view and leaving the operator free to focus on payload adjustments.
With its enhanced interface and further-simplified mission planning experience, this new version of Auterion Mission Control (AMC) offers an improved user experience. The platform’s user-friendliness makes it easier for new operators to learn, and improved commands make flying and managing operations more accessible and intuitive.
