Kutta Unveils Three New UAS Control Products at AUVSI 2013

(AUVSI) Trade Show in Washington, D.C. on August 12-15th 2013

WASHINGTON, Aug. 12, 2013 -- Kutta Technologies, Inc. will unveil three new Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Command and Control (C2) products at the upcoming Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) tradeshow in Washington, D.C. on August 12-15th. "Our UAS Control Segment (UCS)-compliant Bi-Directional Remote Video Terminal (BDRVT®) made headlines recently with the successful flight test of the U.S. Army's Shadow UAS, and our advanced research group has also been working on other products that leverage the Office of the Secretary of Defense's (OSD's) UCS open-architecture," said Douglas Limbaugh, Kutta's CEO.


Kutta's AUVSI booth will display the UCS-BDRVT® as well as a STANAG Level 5 handheld Ground Control Station (GCS) and a lightweight MILSPEC computer - The KRC-100. When the UGCS-400 is coupled with the KRC-100, the result is a full MILSPEC, STANAG Level 5 GCS for small UASs, weighing less than 15 pounds including radio and battery. The UGCS-400 still contains all the features of the previous UGCS, including supervised usage mode, but it is now lighter, faster, and more efficient.

Leveraging the power of OSD's UCS open-architecture, the UGCS-400 can be scaled from a handheld GCS to a larger mobile or fixed site system capable of controlling multiple unmanned vehicles. "To our knowledge, this is the smallest, lightest, and most feature-rich Level 5 GCS on the market that fully supports OSD's open architecture model," said David Barnhard, Kutta's Director of Business Development.

Kutta's products will be on display at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Trade Show in Washington, D.C. on August 12-15th 2013. Kutta can be reached in booth #2125 during daily exhibit hours of the show.

Kutta Technologies, Inc. is based in Phoenix, AZ and is a leading developer of high reliability mission-critical software and systems for the aerospace industry. For more information please visit http://www.KuttaTech.com or call 1-866-574-9990.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
