Pixhawk 6X Flight ControllerThe Pixhawk 6X flight controller features triple-redundant IMU sensors and utilizes a design incorporating completely isolated sensor domains with separate buses and separate power control. A high-speed Ethernet interface allows the unit to be easily integrated into a wide range of drone mission computers.

The Pixhawk 6X Pro provides triple-redundant IMUs including a main sensor with a high accelerometer dynamic range of ±40 g, as well as dual-redundant barometers. The safety-driven modular design utilizes completely isolated sensor domains with separate buses and separate power control.

Autopilots, Navigation Systems & Peripherals for UAVsBased on the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX/Nano carrier board, the Pixhawk Jetson Baseboard can be used with any PAB (Pixhawk Autopilot Bus) form factor flight controller, including the Pixhawk 6X. The baseboard provides a rich set of I/O capabilities, including Gigabit Ethernet, USB, UART, HDMI, and MIPI CSI camera inputs.

The Pixhawk RPi CM4 Baseboard allows you to combine any PAB (Pixhawk Autopilot Bus) form factor flight controller with a Raspberry Pi CM4 companion computer. A wide variety of I/O connections are provided for ease of use for developers and systems integrators.

Kakute H743-Wing Flight ControllerThe Kakute H743 Wing is a full-featured flight controller specifically designed for fixed-wing and VTOL drones. Featuring an Arm Cortex-M7 CPU supporting ArduPilot-based firmware and a high-precision low-noise IMU, it provides a range of I/O including UART, PWM and I2C as well as plug-and-play compatibility with CAN devices and GPS receivers.

H-RTK mosaic-H GPS ModuleThe H-RTK mosaic-H is a state-of-the-art GPS & GNSS module based around an advanced Septentrio receiver with integrated magnetometer and dual-antenna inputs. By utilizing GPS as the yaw source instead of a traditional compass, it provides drone autopilots with more accurate information, thus enhancing navigation performance.

H-RTK F9P differential high-precision GNSS modules are based around the u-blox ZED-F9P and offer fast convergence times, reliable performance and fast update rates. The series features three models – a low-cost variant for rover applications, a helical antenna version for rovers or base stations, and a model with a high-gain antenna specifically designed for base stations.

DroneCAN H-RTK F9P Rover ModuleThe DroneCAN version of the H-RTK F9P differential high-precision GNSS module for rover applications offers enhanced resistance to EMI and an update rate of up to 8 Hz. This model features a low profile with superior ingress protection for rugged and space-constrained drone applications. A helical antenna version is also available that provides enhanced performance in obstruction-filled environments and is ideal for rover or base station applications.
