¬ In-house aerial platforms
We have developed complete systems in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles. The “TARSIS” aerial platform stands out among our fixed-wing vehicles. It is a versatile solution capable of performing different missions with a variety of configurations. It is a light tactical fixed-wing vehicle (UAV/RPAS) designed for observation, surveillance and micro-missile integration.
As a result of the intensive R&D efforts carried out by the company in recent years, we currently offer two specific solutions, the TARSIS 75 and the TARSIS 25.
|Platform||Max. endurance||Max ceiling||MTOW||Max payload|
|TARSIS 75||12 h||5 000 m||74.5 kg||12 kg||TARSIS 25||7 h||4 000 m||25 kg||5 kg|
Both solutions are capable of operating in diverse climatic conditions. The platforms are equipped with a primary nominal communications system along with a secondary redundant system. The primary real time video/data link has a range of 70 km / 150 km (according to TARSIS 75 options) and 40 km / 150 km (according to TARSIS 25 options). The secondary link connects via satellite, and has unlimited range. The communications frequency is adapted to local operator requirements.
It is important to point out that the platforms’ features can be adapted to any mission requirements because of their in-house design and technology.

¬ Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC) System
Our GNC system calculates an optimal trajectory prediction algorithm that takes into account the flight’s attitude and direction along with environmental impact. The control and navigation systems used on all our platforms have also been developed by us. The mission system includes an optimal flight trajectory generator based on: reference point configuration, exploitation and altitude, flight plan patterns, a “Go Home” option, linear and helical ascents and descents, planned orderly manoeuvres to perform loiter/contingency/emergency manoeuvres.
Our challenge now is to integrate our GNC system into a rotary-wing unmanned aerial vehicle with a MTOW of 70 kg.
¬ Ground Control System (GCS)
AERTEC Solutions likewise offers a GCS station which has also been designed with in-house technology. All kinds of unmanned vehicles can be controlled and operating plans and navigation modes defined from it. Since it is a generic station, the ground control station allows for the development of dedicated applications. This single common interface for the running of different systems offers advantages having to do with operator training and management systems. Our GCS system is capable of gathering any data recorded at each vehicle’s location in order to transmit a unified compiled report through specific data transmission software, which follows a defined protocol.
