Lockheed Martin Launches Unmanned Vehicle Control Software that Can Simultaneously Control Multiple UAV Types, Operating Anywhere on Earth

CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 20, 2018 -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) software has been simultaneously flying, on average, at least six unmanned aircraft during every hour of the last 25 years, completing missions as diverse as reconnaisance, inspection, mapping and targeting. Today, Lockheed Martin is launching VCSi, a new vehicle control software, as the culmination of more than two decades of experience and 1.5 million hours of operational use.

Lockheed Martin will unveil VCSi – commercial software that enables operators to simultaneously control dozens of unmanned vehicles and conduct information, surveillance and reconaissance missions – during the Unmanned Systems Exhibition and Conference in Abu Dhabi this month.

"VCSi is a safe and reliable software platform that can be adapted to any vehicle – from one you can hold in your hand, to a 50,000-pound machine; from a vehicle that flies for a few minutes, to a vehicle that flies for months at a time," said John Molberg, business development manager, Lockheed Martin CDL Systems. "The user can integrate as many vehicles as required to complete their missions, including boats, quadcopters, fixed-wing aircraft or even high-altitude pseudo satellites. Across commercial or military missions, VCSi is adaptable to the challenge and further extends the power of the human-machine team."

VCSi's major enhancements include:

  • Multi-Vehicle: Control interfaces to allow for true 1:n control of dissimilar vehicles anywhere on earth
  • Intuitive: Lockheed Martin further advanced its fly-by-mouse interface to enable easier training and reduce operator/analyst task loads
  • Affordable: Priced competitively with all unmanned systems in mind, customers can buy essential modules for their mission set
  • Modular: Offers a robust plug-in architecture, which allows for custom content to be added by the user or selected from pre-existing modules
  • International: Commercial software, made in Canada and free of export restrictions

VCSi is designed around the NATO Standardization Agreement known as STANAG 4586, which supports unmanned vehicle interoperability. Customers can build attachments or plug-ins beyond 4586 to customize the VCSi software, which also supports multiple languages and non-Latin scripts. VCSi provides advanced 3D visualization of vehicles and airspace, and it is at the forefront of integration into unmanned traffic management systems. 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the VCS unmanned control product family, which has accumulated more than 1.5 million flight hours by operators controlling 40 different vehicles across several dozen companies.

Lockheed Martin has five decades of experience in unmanned and autonomous systems for air, land and sea. From the depths of the ocean to the rarified air of the stratosphere, Lockheed Martin's unmanned systems help militaries, civil and commercial customers accomplish their most difficult challenges.

Granicus Announces Acquisition of Vision Internet

DENVER and EL SEGUNDO, Calif. and ST. PAUL, Minn. and WASHINGTON, Feb. 15, 2018 -- Granicus, the largest provider of cloud-based software solutions to government, today announced that it will acquire Vision Technology Solutions LLC, the premiere provider of website solutions for government organizations in the U.S. and Canada.

With the acquisition of Vision, Granicus is accelerating its mission to power seamless digital citizen experiences by bringing the first end-to-end digital government platform to market.

The combination of Vision's website solutions with Granicus' cloud-based communication and legislative management solutions will enable governments to serve their citizens simply and effectively with a single integrated provider. The combined company aims to address the digital customer experience gap that exists between the private and public sector.

"Customers have come to expect a fast, seamless experience when interacting with businesses across private industry," said Granicus CEO Mark Hynes. "Unfortunately, despite the best of intentions, most government agencies have been unable to keep up with rising citizen demands for access and transparency."

In fact, surveys indicate satisfaction with government services has fallen to an eight-year low. Most government organizations are critically aware of this rising dissatisfaction trend, with 73 percent of state and local government leaders indicating in a recent Deloitte survey that their digital capabilities were behind the private sector.

"Our government clients are feeling considerable pressure to embrace digital technologies to share information, bring citizens closer to the legislative process and transition traditional services online. These pressures are coming both from the communities they serve, as well as the desire to deliver more impactful services with constrained budgets," said Hynes. "By combining Vision with Granicus we are one step closer to providing government organizations with a comprehensive platform that delivers on the promises of a digital future - satisfying the rising digital experience expectations of citizens, while providing those services more cost efficiently."

Vision's flagship product, visionLive™, is a subscription-based content management system (CMS) and service plan that equips organizations with the technology, support, training and insights to keep websites relevant and effective. Together, Granicus and Vision serve nearly 3,500 organizations in the U.S., U.K. and Canada.

"Millions of Americans interact with government agencies every day – whether they are looking to weigh in on legislation or virtually participate in local council meetings, they are most likely starting this interaction online," said Vision CEO David Nachman. "By bringing Granicus and Vision together, we will help our clients better serve and engage today's mobile and connected citizens in ways that are more impactful and more easily delivered."

About Granicus
Granicus provides technology that empowers government organizations to create better lives for the people they serve. By offering the industry's leading cloud-based solutions for communications, meeting and agenda management, and digital services to more than 3,000 public sector organizations, Granicus helps turn government missions into quantifiable realities.
