UTC Aerospace Systems Introduces Smaller UAV Autopilots

Piccolo Nano AP Designed For Hand-Launched Aircraft

The smallest addition to the Cloud Cap Technology Piccolo family of flight management systems has been released by UTC Aerospace Systems. The Cloud Cap Technology Piccolo Nano autopilot is designed to meet the requirements of the smallest UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) in both size and price with all the capabilities and features needed by the most sophisticated UAVs.

The Piccolo Nano is a new fully compatible member of the Piccolo autopilot family in both software and feature capability, the Piccolo Nano provides a small, lightweight, flexible architecture to support the myriad of designs in small hand launched or uniquely configured UAVs.  This unenclosed, distributable autopilot system provides maximum installation flexibility to the system integrator and is a perfect fit in small UAVs where the vehicle structure provides the enclosure and the autopilot components need to be distributed within the airframe's available space.

The Piccolo Nano will be priced to enter the market in the $1000 range, addressing the need for economy in small UAVs while maintaining a professional grade fully supported autopilot.  The unit can be upgraded with the same options as the Piccolo SL and Piccolo II which include DGPS precision auto land, moving baseline landing support, VTOL support and more.
