What are Ground Control Stations?
Hitec Commercial Solutions SUI Integrated Ground Controller
Ground Control Stations (GCS) are sets of ground-based hardware and software that allow UAV operators to communicate with and control a drone and its payloads, either by setting parameters for autonomous operation or by allowing direct control of the UAV.
GCS specific to a particular model of drone, designed to operate with multiple models manufactured by the same company, or universal – compatible with many UAV makes, models and payloads. Some GCS may also be configured to work with other unmanned systems such as unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs).
