APS Series Advanced Programmable Controller Platform is a new APS Series Advanced Programmable Controller is designed to simplify the operation of
unmanned vehicles. With emphasis on tight integration, high reliability, and maximum flexibility. The APS Series Advanced Programmable Controller enables rapid development
and testing of autonomous Unmanned Vehicle systems and provides a production system at a competitive price.
The APS Series Advanced Programmable Controller provides an optional MIDG Series INS/GPS, making a complete inertial solution for use in APS Series Advanced Programmable Controller applications. Other Unmanned Vehicle systems might appear to be smaller and weigh less, but the APS Series Advanced Programmable Controller includes the ability to drive up to 30 servos, has 12 analog inputs for measurement application (fuel, battery power, altitude, airspeed, etc.), that supports a memory card (SD card) for real-time data recording, and has a built-in wireless transceiver - all of this in a single integrated package.
Unmanned Vehicle systems are now being deployed for aerial surveillance in local police action and for border control. The APS Series Advanced Programmable Controller is currently being used to provide autopilot capabilities to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for various U.S. government departments and contractors in the defense industry.
