UVCS — Universal VTOL Control System is an advanced autopilot system for unmanned vertical take-off andlanding aerial vehicles. It can accomplish auto take off/landing, hover, cruise flight and even maneuver flights. The UVCS was specifically designed for medium and above UAVs.

The system consists of an INS/ GNSS system, a flight control system, a mission management system, a command communication system and a ground station system (depending on configuration). It is suitable for conventional helicopters, unconventional VTOL aircrafts, and variable load tasks (e.g. Delivery task, and traction task)


● Full flight envelope control – Exert the maximum performance of the aircraft, reach the maximum speed and altitude, increase the flight range, save fuel consumption and improve task efficiency

● INS/GNSS navigation system – Second-order precision navigation system, support GPS / GLONASS etc. System can use a single GNSS or multiple systems working in parallel to improve the positioning accuracy and reliability

● Four operation modes – Manual / Attitude Stabilization / Velocity Control / Fully Autonomous

● Industrial grade – Both Software and Hardware

● Safe Operation – Integrated Mission Management System can make sure the Autopilot only execute the effective (right) commands, avoids possible human errors

● Load and environment insensitive – Modern Nonlinear Control design technology makes the UVCS more robust and maneuverable than conventional control systems

● Upgrade ready –The UVCS can be upgraded from different levels, from sensors (e.g. DGPS/GLONASS) to systems (e.g. redundancy flight control system and multi-ground station system )

● Lightweight – Core module only weights 750g(Type A)/1900g(Type B)

● Wide input voltage – Allow UVCS and other avionics use the same power supply

● Cost efficiency – The UVCS installed with high performance sensors in base model, most of the functions can be simply upgraded by uploading new software, without hardware changes

The adaptation of UVCS for a specific aircraft requires recorded data from a manually piloted flight.

Nonlinear parameter identification techniques are used to extract mathematical models from the data and to synthesize a nonlinear robust controller.
