Aeronav Ground Control Station


An adaptive ground control station (GCS) built on top of the Panasonic Toughpad FZG1, for professional remote operation of various types of robotic solutions.

The versatile ground control station

The Aeronav is a market-leading adaptive ground control station for all types of robotic, drone, and remote-control vehicles. The Aeronav is a versatile and mobile ground control station, delivered with custom hardware, engraving, and firmware.

The core of the Aeronav is the Panasonic Toughpad, a professional, reliable, and military grade tablet that helps drive efficiency and productivity in ways that were never previously possible. The Aeronav is capable of operating outdoors in various extreme environments. It is especially suitable for field application in markets such as aviation, defense, or construction because of its capability to perform under extreme and ever-evolving environments.

The Aeronav is a well-proven, secure, and reliable solution which is easily extendable with your hardware and software requirements. Its production version can be delivered fully customized according to your specifications, including custom software, firmware, engraving, joystick configuration, and radio/control modules.

The Aeronav combined with the Panasonic Toughpad incorporates an 800cd/m² IPSα display. The capacitive 10-finger multi-touch display and digitizer pen makes it extremely user-friendly. The Aeronav runs on Windows 10 Pro, Windows 8, or Ubuntu and is equipped with the Intel® Core™ i5 Processor. Its connectivity options ensure that data is available to the user whenever needed.

Development Edition

Before initiating the design and production of a customized Aeronav, we encourage our customers and partners to verify software, hardware, and business requirements by purchasing one or more Aeronav development kits. 

The Aeronav development kit consists of a standardized Aeronav accompanied by our technical support. Thereby, making it possible to evaluate your needs and make sure that your requirements have or can be met by our solution. The development kit comes with a Panasonic Toughpad, Microsoft Windows, and standard engraving, but with the ability to attach your desired hardware modules and install your software applications. If custom software needs to be developed, we can assist with sample code developed in Java and other languages by request.
