Project Description: 

DAS Stabilis is an autopilot developed by DASLab that is currently being commercialized by Unmanned Cowboys .  Stabilis is designed for innovators. It provides a disruptive Plug-and-AdaptTM autopilot system that is designed to rapidly adapt to a wide array of UAS platforms, missions, and collaborative operational paradigms.  Stabilis is modular, it can utilize rapidly advancing GP-GPU (General Purpose Graphics Processing Units) technology to enable massive onboard parallelization.

We are working on algorithms, software, and hardware design to optimally utilize parallelization to significantly expand the class of autonomy problems that can be solved onboard a small UAS. Along with extensive validation on our Hardware-in-the-loop testing simulator, Stabilis has also been validated through a number of flight-tests.

Stabilis is not platform dependent
