Rigid, Reliable and Secure​

Rigid, Reliable and Secure​

EGCS is designed by a Blue SUAS drone maker with NDAA compliance and functionality in mind. It is a tough, all-weather, handheld ground station that utilizes an industrial-grade tablet, powered by an Intel Pentium Silver© processor.

EGCS embodies a decade of operational experience, in both defense and commercial, extreme operational use cases.

Datalink is reliable and secure with AES256 encryption and FIPS 140-2 compatibility. It also features an adjustable 1W, 2×2 MIMO with Low-Density Parity Check (LDPC) wireless RF link.

Rigid, Reliable and Secure

Expert User interface​

For best performance, the EGCS offers an ergonomic set of controls for manual operation, as well as a tough 10.1” anti-glare and high-resolution touchscreen. It is powered by a ten (10) hour battery, supports Windows 11 or Linux OS, and can run any robotics C2 software.

EGCS rocks four 2 axis joysticks (two in the front and two in the rear) that allow for complete, precise control of air, ground, or surface platforms and integrated payloads. It has a unique robust encoder that operates over both USB and SBUS at the same time. All 6 buttons, 2 three-position switches and 4 joysticks on EGCS are completely customizable. ​

Unique Features

EGCS is a commercial grade ground station built with modularity in mind. It has removable long range C2 section with its own power supply that can be used as a standalone transmitter/receiver, or as part of the handheld remote.

It is a first ever Ground Control Station made for a drone-in-a-box application as well as for any other use case of robotics control. ​ ​
