Military-Grade Robot Controllers Built for Tough Environments

Drone controllers have become increasingly important in the defense sector, where the demand for drones has skyrocketed in recent years. With the need for reliable controllers that can withstand extreme conditions and provide precise control over the drone’s movements, finding the right equipment has become a challenge. However, advancements in technology are helping to overcome these challenges.

Kristian Wålberg is the Technical Sales Support at MilDef, who has experience flying drones in hostile environments. He emphasized the importance of precise control over the drone’s movements for mission success and safety. This requires rugged controllers that are easy to use and integrate seamlessly with communication networks, even in tough conditions.

One challenge that users face is the weight and complexity of rugged controllers. While they are more durable than standard controllers, they can be more difficult to handle. MilDef has developed the RC2100-series  of drone hand controllers, which are designed specifically for rugged environments.

“Customers often expect mini drone controllers to be lightweight, but this can be a challenge when meeting military standards.”
