Ground Control Station for Long Endurance Drones

Project coordinator and Developer

PERIOD

2014-2015

PARTNERS

XMobots and FAPESP

We created an audacious project of XMobots to remotely control large drones in long endurance operations. It involves a shelter to operate the drones and store the control and communication modules, two telescopic communication antennas and also software that control the drones remotely.

WHAT I DID

I performed as the project coordinator and as a software developer in this project.

As project coordinator, I did the requirement analysis, architecture specification, components specifications, management of national and international purchasing of components and also managed the skilled XMbots team to the realization of this project.

As a software developer, I programmed in Java (Swing), C, C++. I used a lot of MDD with IBM Rational Rhapsody (UML) and Esterel SCADE. The software fulfills real-time and multi-platform requirements, meets military standards (STANAG 4586) and runs on embedded Linux on ARM platforms.
