Unmanned Systems

The Possibilities

Unmanned systems offer tremendous possibilities to help protect citizens and troops as well as improve worldwide communications and delivery of services.

  • Taking you to unreachable places
  • Advancing real-time situational awareness with predictive behavior algorithms
  • Enhancing border patrol and search and rescue operations
  • Quickly developing offensive and defensive scenarios
  • Beaming communication access to remote parts of the world

GPS and GNSS technology plays an essential role in autonomous air, land and sea systems, providing efficient and innovative solutions to a host of situations where manned systems are more costly and dangerous. Among the most important advantages of unmanned systems is safely gathering and deploying vital information quickly.


Let's Collaborate.

See how we can improve the safety and efficiency of commercial drones so we can realize the full benefits while minimizing the risks. 

The Challenges are Many

Unmanned systems have made tremendous gains in the last decade, yet multiple challenges still remain.

The growth of unmanned systems in both the commercial and defense sectors has raised issues of cost, schedule, efficacy and efficiency as well as legal, moral and political debate; all underscored by the need for safety.

Spectracom is working closely with its partners in defense and other sectors to address issues such as:

  • Increased reliability and resiliency of the autopilot
  • Interoperability across air, land and sea as well as seamless integration with manned systems
  • Communications concerns regarding security, range and network infrastructure to ensure availability
  • Ease of use by personnel requiring understandable data quickly
  • ‘What if’ scenarios to protect against an attack

Market Relevancy

The continuing development of unmanned systems is having significant impacts in the communities we are part of.
