Kongsberg Geospatial has been creating HMI, geospatial, and spatial awareness components for Unmanned Systems operations centers for over a decade.

Our technology has been selected for prominent programs like the United States Navy Triton (Global Hawk) Unmanned Aerial System because it delivers the necessary performance and precision regardless of the complexity of the sensor data being visualized, and because it has been proven reliable - delivering thousands of hours of continuous operation without failures or memory leaks.

In addition to providing components for Unmanned Systems operations centers and Ground Control Stations (GCS), Kongsberg Geospatial has provided systems integration to make data from unmanned aerial platforms available to Command and Control and Integrated Combat Systems for land-based systems.


More recently, Kongsberg Geospatial has adapted technology originally developed for military UAS applications to create a new situational awareness display, called  IRIS UAS, which is intended to provide civilian Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) operators with the necessary situational awareness to safely operate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight (BVLOS).
