Payload Development Kit (PDK)

Custom Payloads for Specialised Missions

The Payload Development Kit (PDK) further extends payload development to end users, enabling the rapid development of other mission-specific payloads. The PDK provides a full set of payload development tools for electrical, mechanical, and software integration. PDK features include:

Supplementary EO/IR Payload – Provides day and night situational awareness when carrying non-optical payloads, and secondary view-angle intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capability.

Secure IP Networking – Leverage the all-digital AES-encrypted network to integrate payload data and controls with a ground station.

Sensor Data + Power from the AirCraft – Removes the need for developers to integrate batteries, GPS or other sensors in their payload by providing access to services onboard the aircraft.
