SharkFin

cover

SharkFin provides navigation control, video display, and payload control of multiple UAVs in one integrated package. It includes a sophisticated toolset of decision aids, optimization algorithms, and situational awareness displays. World-class autorouting algorithms and physics models enable an operator to optimally position the UAV for target collection, comms coverage, and detection avoidance.

High-Level Planning
A video-game-like interface allows operators to manage the most complex UAV missions in a simple, intuitive way. Users focus on the mission objectives rather than flying an aircraft.

Network-Centric

SharkFin is based on STANAG 4586 and can control any compliant UAV. Many SharkFin workstations can run simultaneously on a network, allowing many users to share control of aircraft and payloads during a mission. Every user has access to streaming payload video, and can control payloads through simple mouse clicks directly on the geo-referenced video display.
