Drone fleet management and mission planning software
CGC provides secure real-time command and control (C2) of multiple autonomous drones and robotic vehicles over 4G and 5G networks. The sensor- and platform-agnostic system is compatible with almost any UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle), UGV (unmanned ground vehicle) or USV (uncrewed surface vessel), as well as a vast array of sensors and payloads including GPS and GNSS receivers, cameras, LiDAR scanners and more.
The advanced SaaS platform enables users to easily configure and manage multiple types and brands of unmanned vehicle, and provides instant access to real-time telemetry, video and payload data. This unique ability allows you to harness the collaborative power of normally incompatible vehicles, streamlining interoperability and enhancing efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
CGC is highly secure, utilizing military-grade AES-256 end-to-end encryption as well as cellular connectivity authentication. It offers direct VPN access and can be easily integrated with existing security systems.
DJI drones can be connected via our mobile Android/iOS app, and other vehicles can utilize CGConnect – a miniature plug-and play cellular modem that weighs just 118 grams fully housed or 55 grams as an OEM board.
