About

For over a decade, the Robotics Centre has proudly brought Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) into service with military and industrial clients. Headquartered in Ottawa, we have offices in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia & Sapporo, Japan.

Over the past decade, the Robotics Centre has delivered over 1,000 UAS and payloads to defence & security clients, trained over 1,100 operators, and maintained the fleet at our dedicated workshop. Robotics Centre also provides training, maintenance & support, and builds components to augment systems such as the ECHO™ signals intercept payload and the SunStone™ hardened GPS solution for small UAS.

SunStone™

Unlock precision navigation in contested environments.

A Plug and Play Anti-Jam GNSS Solution

Quick and secure attachment to the SkyRanger R70 and R80D SkyRaider Accessory Port

Acts as the primary source of position and navigation with little to no configuration

Electronic warfare (EW) threats faced by drones on the battlefield today include GNSS jamming and spoofing techniques. Effects of these threats include loss of control, navigation errors, and mission disruption. To address these challenges, Robotics Centre (RC) introduces SunStone™, an advanced countermeasure solution designed to protect the Teledyne FLIR SkyRanger™ R70 and R80D SkyRaider™ platforms.

SunStone™ incorporates leading GNSS Receiver and Antenna Technology to deliver unmatched constellation and frequency support for the SkyRanger/SkyRaider platforms. Additionally, SunStone™ offers a multi-antenna solution that includes antennas specifically chosen for their anti-jamming capabilities, featuring the latest in Fixed Radiation Pattern Antennas (FRPAs) and Controlled Radiation Pattern Antennas (CRPAs).

Designed as a plug-and-play accessory port payload for the SkyRanger/SkyRaider platforms, the SunStone™ solution enables operators to seamlessly upgrade their GNSS capabilities in response to the anticipated RF environment. This modular approach ensures that the system can adapt to the constantly evolving landscape of electronic warfare (EW) threats.

Multi-Constellation and Multi-Frequency GNSS Support: Sunstone offers access to a wide array of satellites, enhancing GNSS signal availability and diminishing the risk of localized jamming or spoofing attacks.

Advanced Signal Integrity and Accuracy: Sunstone optimizes the signal processing chain to mitigate the effects of electronic warfare threats, ensuring enhanced reliability in position and timing data.

Rapid Reception Adaptation and Signal Attenuation: Sunstone swiftly neutralizes interfering signals to maintain a strong and dependable GNSS signal, guaranteeing precise positioning and navigation despite jamming.

Real-time Threat Monitoring: Sunstone continuously evaluates signal quality and characteristics to detect anomalies, promptly alerting drone operators to potential jamming or spoofing, and enabling immediate defensive action.
