Veronte PCS

Veronte PCS is an advanced ground station system optimized for the control of any Veronte Autopilot-powered vehicle. It contains all the necessary components for performing a wide range of operations with UAVs and other unmanned vehicles. The embedded Veronte Autopilot BCS unit together with the internal radio and the advanced GNSS antenna enables control station precise navigation and communications with the onboard unit.

Veronte PCS is a rugged control station hardware designed for outdoors use. The aluminium enclosure with IP54 protection allows the operation of the system in all weather conditions by protecting the electronics from rain and harsh environments.

Advanced Performance Control Station
Embedded Veronte Autopilot BCS provides advanced performance for a wide range of Drone & unmanned vehicle missions. Dual GNSS module is included in the Veronte PCS enabling RTK - DGPS precision without needing the installation of additional hardware. This dual GPS system together with the internal IMU and magnetometer provides RTK based precise control station position and attitude estimation. With this, net landing, tracking antenna system control, landing in vessels and moving vehicles, etc. can be performed ensuring high precision. The internal barometer permits to perform real-time altitude corrections for QNH and to enable differential barometer precision in the Veronte Autopilot.


Veronte PCS includes 3 different communication ports for performing the ground station connection to the control station PC: Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and USB. This flexibility permits the user to adapt system configuration to their operation needs. In situations where the operator needs freedom of movement, the WI-FI connection is recommended. Ethernet and USB connections are commonly used for operations in which the operator will remain away from the communications module or in which WI-FI communications must be limited, as in the military environment. It includes a power supply battery to operate without the need of a wired power source. This is an essential feature for outdoor operations permitting to have a quick response system adaptable to any requirement that the operator could have.

Customizable Expansion Bay

Customizable Expansion Bay

Besides the embedded hardware (Veronte Autopilot BCS, WIFI communications, high-performance battery…) the expansion bay allows to install additional electronics and equipment inside the IP66 compliant protection. This bay includes communication ports so installed hardware can interface with PCS electronics & control station PC.

Video communication modules and joystick receivers are commonly installed on the 360x160x90mm bay. This bay provides the flexibility needed by most UAV, drone and unmanned vehicle operators so they can adapt system performance to their custom needs. Ethernet, PPM, SBUS… ports are accessible inside the expansion bay for customizing UAV control station performance.

High-Reliability Ground Control Station

High-Reliability Ground Control Station

The embedded Veronte Autopilot BCS hardware provides the control station with certifiable software in compliance with DO178 & DO254 up to DAL B. This control station system ensures a high-reliability interface in the ground without needing to rely on a PC powered by a commercial OS (Windows, Linux, MAC…). It permits to control the drone and program automatic and manual failsafe routines even in the event of losing the main control station computer.

Additional sticks and buttons can be easily connected to the Veronte PCS control station and configured to trigger specific routines. A 3h backup battery is also included in the Veronte PCS.

Wide Compatibility With Veronte Products

Wide Compatibility With Veronte Products

Veronte PCS combines perfectly with Veronte MCS. This dual screen control station has been designed for operations in outdoor use. This station includes high-performance screens with antiglare treatment so it can be used in the harshest environments. Veronte PCS will complement this station by adding the Veronte Control Station electronics and the communications interface.

Veronte Tracker is the preferred solution for long-range communications. Permitting to install a wide range of antennas, the Veronte Tracker system permits to have a fully autonomous directional antenna pointing. Veronte PCS can be easily attached to the Veronte Tracker for performing antenna control. Using Veronte PCS navigation and positioning to accurately point the directional antenna to the UAV or the Drone.

Embedded Control Station for Drones & UAVs

Embedded Control Station for Drones & UAVs

A wide variety of communication channels can be used for interfacing the Veronte Autopilot 4x with the GCS (Ground Control Station). Veronte Tracker is the prefered solution for long range communication but third party LOS, 4G/LTE and Satcom datalink modules can be used for communications with no range limitations.

The use of Veronte Cloud and the embedded 4G module in the UAV / eVTOL control system enables UTM integration by interfacing with online databases for air traffic and weather information. Sense & Avoid functions are also possible by installing an obstacle data source, such an, ADS-B, a radar or a LIDAR sensor.
