China Developing Holographic UAV Control CenterChina’s biggest aviation manufacturer, Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), is developing a holographic ground control system (GCS) for UAVs.

Unveiled at Airshow China here, the “nerve center” or GCS displays the UAV as a holographic image. It allows the controller to command the aircraft, obtain flight parameters and information on navigation and guidance through a “human-machine interface.”

According to Defense News, the controller experiences the entire process of the mission via this interface, including mission payload, route planning, flight control, identification of friend/foe, precision strikes and task assessment of the UAV operational environment.

Airshow China, known officially as The 10th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, was held on Nov. 11-16.
