BRISBANE, Australia, 28 September, 2015 – Insitu Pacific, the Australia-based subsidiary of Insitu Inc., announced today that it will demonstrate the Insitu Common Open-mission Management Command and Control (ICOMC2) ground control station at Pacific – Australia’s International Maritime Exposition, 6-8 October in Sydney.
ICOMC2 is designed for expeditionary use and empowers one operator to manage multiple unmanned vehicles through the STANAG 4586 standard for unmanned systems command and control. Its open-architecture design scales to operate with systems as small as soldier-worn devices or up to interfacing with operational level C2 systems that provide information on integrated displays from large screens. ICOMC2’s architecture was designed to support extensibility and customization of the tool through plug-ins, and Insitu plans to make the ICOMC2 SDK available to the public.
“ICOMC2 is a proven system,” said Insitu Pacific managing director Andrew Duggan. “It has been refined through more than 847,000 flight hours and is currently supporting both land and maritime missions globally.”
The system increases situational awareness with its augmented video overlay capability, allowing operators to overlay video with data such as terrain elevation, satellite data, target identification, border information and acoustic detectability in a single picture.
“ICOMC2 is another example of Insitu developing industry-leading technology that supports our customers’ unique needs in the Asia Pacific region,” said Duggan.
Members of the team will demonstrate ICOMC2 onsite during Pacific.
