Rockwell Collins is to provide its Athena 411 flight control and navigation system for the Mist Mobility Integrated Systems Technology CQ-10A Snow Goose unmanned aerial vehicle. Athena 411 is a system that integrates solid-state gyros and accelerometers, magnetometer, GPS receiver and air data sensors into a single, small, strap-down unit. MMIST is developing the Snow Goose as an unmanned cargo delivery system able to carry 575 pounds of cargo to up to six locations. It can be launched from the back of a vehicle, or air-dropped from a C-130 or C-17. The original parachute “wing” design is giving way to an autogyro rotor head and rear stabilizing system. Flight trials are due for late summer.
