MicroPilot has released a whitepaper explaining the factors involved in purchasing UAV autopilots from a vendor versus building them in-house. Details on how MicroPilot offers UAV manufacturers the best value are also exemplified.
Key factors covered include:
- Costs associated with designing an original UAV autopilot plus the additional expenses needed to support its design into the future
- The level of expertise that a UAV autopilot vendor acquires over time
- Added bonuses that most often cannot be accomplished in-house, such as customer support, access to industry experts, and a product line covering a range of customer requirements
