Commercial applications that require autonomous air platforms are becoming more prevalent, however there is a lack of commercially available ground stations that enable remote takeoff and landing. This project served to design and fabricate a ground station and custom UAV interface to allow remote landing, storage, and takeoff of autonomous drones for commercial applications. This included hardware in the base station responsible for charging and protecting the drone with a weatherproof enclosure for storage. The drone was autonomously controlled using a high accuracy GNSS combined with custom control software to follow flight paths and land within the ground station. The drone is extendable and can mount various standard sensor suites to serve a wide range of commercial applications.
