Multi-Domain Drones Controlled w ATAK

InsideUnmannedSystems has an article on an emerging class of remote controlled systems that can be controlled with ATAK.

Robotic Research LLC introduced anew multi-domain vehicle Tuesday that is capable of doing mapping or searching out chemical weapons from either the air or the ground.

“It’s a whole new category of robots,” said Alberto Lacaze, president of Robotic Research. “Nothing before Pegasus has had the reach or versatility of this system. We look forward to sharing this with our customers in the U.S. military, as well as within commercial sectors and areas such as public works.”

Pegasus can operate in areas where GPS is unavailable and can also function autonomously in both air or ground mode.

It is operated with a common controller built within the ATAK/Nett Warrior application. ATAK (Android Tactical Assault Kit) enables users to know where their team members are and supports situational awareness. The app was developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and is based on an open-source virtual globe called WorldWind that was developed by NASA
