Veronte Autopilot 1x allows for a wide variety of communication and control solutions to adapt to each mission and platform specifications. This section summarizes a list of recommended options to operate an Autopilot 1x in different situations.


Most of the following diagrams can be used independently or combinated, to create redundant systems or backup solutions.

The following image shows the standard Veronte System Layout for operation.


In the standard layout, an Operator (Internal Pilot) controls the UAV from the Ground Station using Veronte Ops.

Additionally, a Safety Pilot (External Pilot) is connected to the Ground Station using a radio controller. The stick commands are read by the Ground Unit and re-routed to the Air Unit. The Safety Pilot is able to take control of the flight at any point using an automation.

While this is the most common setup, there is a wide variety of options, including:

  • BLOS communications

  • Onboard RC receivers

  • Point to Multipoint configurations

Air Communications

Communication solutions between air and ground devices.

Line of Sight

Standard setup




Beyond Line of Sight

Internal 4G + Veronte Cloud


External Internet access + Veronte Cloud

For alternative internet access


External Satellite communication

For maximum reliability


Remote GCS

For remote solutions with LOS backup operator


Ground Communications

Comunication solutions between the different GS devices

Serial interface


External Radiolink

For modular ground stations.



For operation with laptops or tablets.


Manual Control Layouts

Veronte allows for a wide variety of pilot interface solutions in order to interact with manual flight modes, assisted flight modes (arcade) or payloads.

PPM to Ground Unit

Standard setup. Allows the usage of a single radio channel both for stick, control commands and telemetry, minimizing any potential interferences.


PPM to Air Unit

Allows for a backup manual channel when there is a main channel loss and an emergency manual landing is needed. Recommended for initial developement stages where automatic landing phases are not defined yet.


USB to Software

Allows the use of any device that is detected as a remote controller by the operative system


Stick Expander

The Veronte Stick Expander allows for the integration of commercial flight station devices and remote controllers. In addition, Stick Expander enables the use of USB sticks within the Veronte ecosystem.


Virtual Stick

The Virtual stick feature allows to integrate as a stick controller any device that can interface with BCS or Air unit (RS232, RS485, ADC, CAN…) and can provide control reference values.

While the configuration is slightly more complex, this feauture allows using a wide variety of devices as flight control interfaces.

Point to Multipoint Layouts

Due to Veronte’s modular configuration, it is possible to integrate several air and ground units within the same network.

Point to Point

Standard multiplatorm setup.


Point to Multipoint with Single Ground Station

Managing several platforms with a single radiolink.


Multipoint to Point with Multiple Ground Stations

For long range operations with several LOS stations.
