The Quattro Flight Management System (FMS) is an industrial grade airborne system composed of the Quattro Autopilot and one or more Quattro Nodes. These core components work in tandem to reduce complexity and weight while enhancing reliability, modularity, and critical mission adaptability.
The Quattro FMS design philosophy is guided by the following priorities:
- Unparalleled Support
- Advanced Flight Control
- Built-in Redundancy
- Active Diagnostics
- Test-Driven Development
- Robust Hardware
Applied Navigation understands the importance of support.
Advanced Flight Control
Applied Navigation brings proven flight control techniques from manned aviation to the UAS world.
Redundancy and reliability are prioritized starting with the core inertial sensors.
Quattro actively monitors its hardware and software health to enhance safety and reliability.
Test Driven Development
Automated testing is at the core of Applied Navigation’s software development approach.
The Quattro FMS is designed from the ground up with hardware modularity and durability in mind.
