CenturionTM allows users to control single, multiple or swarms of drones, from anywhere in the world, using a single command centre, or via multiple, localised, field deployed locations.

Centurion can be installed on fully mobile field deployable vehicles, such as Blue Bear’s MMCS, which has recently been upgraded with the Satcom capability. Therefore, CenturionTM can now be deployed anywhere in the world to control any UxVs.

Utilising Blue Bear’s SmartConnectTM technology, any UAV, UGV, USV, UxV or manned asset, including individual soldiers, can be brought on to the Centurion technology, through their individual communication systems, utilising Satcom – as a versatile, globally deployed, capability.

Ian Williams-Wynn, MD of Blue Bear, said: “Working with Inmarsat and Cobham to integrate their capabilities has been an excellent opportunity to enhance our Satcom systems capability – the support received has been first class.

"We have been able to integrate this capability rapidly, with excellent results, enhancing Blue Bear’s technology ready for truly global operations.”
