Insitu upgrades unmanned aircraft system common command and control system

Insitu introduces version 2.0 of its ICOMC2 common command and control system, enabling a single operator to control multiple unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) with small-footprint, mobile hardware that features an open-architecture design able to be customized with plug-ins and new applications.

COMC2 2.0 includes a mission commander mode, which increases situational awareness and integrates with other command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems, enabling ICOMC2 to provide or receive tasking between intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems.

ICOMC2 2.0 features a high-performance, lightweight mapping engine, a full-featured software development kit, lower memory footprint for mobile usage, and new video formats.

"ICOMC2 2.0 represents how Insitu is leading the way with small-footprint technology that is flexible and scalable," explains Ryan Hartman, senior vice president, Insitu programs. "This technology signifies a quantum leap for customers by providing a UAS system that can task, process, exploit and disseminate information and effects to end users."

Through the ICOMC2 Registered Developers Program, third parties receive support developing plug-ins for the system's core. The program also supports the University Partnerships Program, a cost-effective solution for colleges and universities that want to offer courses or degrees in unmanned technology.

Insitu Inc. in Bingen, Wash., is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company that designs, develops, and manufactures UAS and provides associated services for civil and defense applications.
