Expeditionary Ground Control System (xGCS)

Expeditionary Ground Control System (xGCS) was designed specifically to be a complete, transportable UAS computing and storage platform. It has the computing power, system resources, data storage, and interface capability to monitor and control multiple UAV Airframes and their associated ISR Payloads.

Expeditionary Ground Control System has the computing power, system resources, data storage, and interface capability to monitor and control multiple UAS and ISR Payloads. Expeditionary Ground Control System, with AME UAS’s SharkFin UAS Mission Management Software, combines to form a complete, transportable UAS and ISR Ground Control Station.

Expeditionary Ground Control System is a flexible and expandable system that meets the needs of many deployment environments. This rugged system is built for the needs of the Warfighter and supports a variety of Ground Control and Exploitation requirements.
