Sydney – February 2021 – Advanced Navigation, the leading AI navigation systems manufacturer for enterprise and government, today announced the release of Cloud Ground Control, a revolutionary SaaS platform enabling users to connect, monitor and control any drone from a web browser.
Cloud Ground Control allows multi-user and multi-drone connections over 4G/5G using a credit card-sized modem or a smartphone app.
To remotely support the execution of drone missions, the platform offers a wide range of features including:
- Multi-user and multi-drone connection
- Real-time video feed and telemetry
- End to end encryption
- Built-in compliance
- Cloud storage
Cloud Ground Control is ideal for enterprises using drone fleets for emergency situations, construction, asset inspections, and mining. As a cloud-based command and control solution, it provides pilots and mission commanders with real-time situational awareness and mission control, enabling more informed decisions and efficient responses.
The platform is already used by Australian company Little Ripper to manage their drone fleet over 1000 km of coastline.
“Cloud Ground Control has allowed us to gain better insights of what is happening on our beaches so our teams can make more informed decisions in emergencies,” said Jason Young, CEO of Ripper Corporation.
Cloud Ground Control can be used on any desktop
Developed for ease of use, it can integrate users’ custom software, machine learning capabilities, and drone peripherals into one online platform.
Built by Advanced Navigation’s engineering team, Cloud Ground Control leverages a decade of experience working with the world’s leading robot and drone manufacturers. The Australian-made platform is designed and built with the flexibility to meet ever-evolving drone regulations.
“We were working on a number of the most innovative robotics projects in the world and the one common element we found was that there was no good solution for monitoring and control over cellular networks. We set out to solve that problem and create a reliable and secure cloud monitoring and control platform. Combined with our 4G/5G micro modem technology, the system allows robotics platforms to be onboarded in a flash.” said Xavier Orr, CEO, and co-founder of Advanced Navigation.
