IAI demonstrates SOA – Based UAS C2

At the AUSA Annual Meeting today, I got a look at Twister, an unmanned aerial system command consolen and a brand new UAS operator conslole from IAI that uses STANAG 4586 compliant interfaces and a service-oriented architecture that makes it possible to publish UAS location and sensor data over the Global Information Grid — or any other IP based network.

IAI was just one of several tech vendors showing off STANAG 4586 – compatible systems. But the Twister platform, a commander’s-view console that provides sensor fusion from multiple UAVs,  is part of a SOA-based ground station suite that IAI has built that also includes operator and training capabilities.  All of the data coming out of the ground station could be federated over a SOA backbone (like DCGS, for example.)
