Coming Soon a Universal UAV Controller

Using gaming industry technology, Raytheon has developed a new “cockpit” for unmanned aerial vehicles and calls it the Universal Control System. Raytheon officials say they sought to build the system around the operator, developing a wrap-around display that will give the operator more situational awareness than any manned platform. The UCS has an “intuitive interface technology” that Raytheon says will make “UAS operators much more effective in learning the UCS system and with significantly less training.”
