Rockwell Collins 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.
