uAvionix and CubePilot announce reseller distribution agreement – sUAS News – The Business of Drones
Today, uAvionix and CubePilot announced a partnership to allow the extensive CubePilot reseller network to sell the full George Autopilot Ecosystem and George integration kits directly to end-users.
CubePilot resellers will now be able to offer the uAvionix George Autopilot Ecosystem, which is based on the world′s most advanced autopilot for open autonomous unmanned vehicles, the Cube. With Cube installed in millions of unmanned systems worldwide, the George autopilot ecosystem enables the flexibility and open-source innovation architecture, with the robustness of certifiable DAL-C hardware. The George integration kits include the George autopilot, uAvionix GPS, microLink CNPC radios, antennas, connectors, and power adapters to provide customers an easy way and safe command and control system to fly demanding drones operations.
uAvionix and CubePilot have had a long-standing relationship starting with uAvionix 1090MHz customized ADS-B receivers integrated into the ADS-B carrier board from CubePilot. With CubePilot Orange or Blue at the core of George, all uAvionix components work seamlessly together for smaller operators as well as demanding commercial and government customers seeking certification. Simplify integration, performance, integrity, and reliability for customers, saving time and money.
Christian Ramsey, President of uAvionix said; “We have enjoyed a very productive relationship with CubePilot over the past several years and have used the CubePilot based George system extensively in our own fleet of UAS on our test flight campaign with VANTIS, Bringing the ease of a fully integrated uAvionix UAS ecosystem to CubePilot resellers will enhance the offering to their customers when reliability, accuracy and integrity are key”.
Philip Rowse, owner of CubePilot said; “We have over 90 resellers around the world, and many are expanding their operations. George and the uAvionix ecosystem are a logical next step for many looking to add a fully integrated, lightweight, and extremely capable system to their operation. The complete airborne package is under 175-grams, and easy to use. We are looking forward to seeing what our resellers can do with this system”.
The CubePilot reseller network will also have access to other uAvionix non-certified and certified UAS products, such as the TSO certified truFYX WAAS GPS for aviation-grade GPS integrity, the TSO certified ping200X transponder, pingRX Pro airborne receiver, and the dual-band pingStation3 ground receiver to aid Detect & Avoid. The use of certified avionics paired with George autopilot will help customers simplify their type certification processes and safety case as avionics that already have a TSO certification typically require no further performance review from a regulator in a type certification process.
The uAvionix and CubePilot partnership make it incredibly easy for resellers to offer a full upgrade of standards to obtain aviation-grade performance for their end customers. George and all other uAvionix products are in-stock and ready to ship, so visit our program page today: George Integration Kit
