China Shows Off New Holographic Ground Control System for Drones

Holographic Ground Control Station

The Holographic Ground Control Station (GCS) has a large holographic display in front of the pilot station, so that other personnel can oversee and observe the drone operations. The holographic display would make it easier for non drone personnel to understand drone operations. It also be valuable for training drone operators.

AVIC, China’s top aerospace manufacturer, is finding unexpected but sci-fi inspired ways to push the drone technological envelope. The Holographic Ground Control System (GCS) displays a holographic image of the drone, making it easier for the controller to intitutively understand UAV operations, by fusing together flight parameters, payload monitoring, weapons release and sensor data. The pilot is seated at the cockpit, while other personnel can observe the UAV and its environment on the hologram.
