GCSs are indispensable part of operation intended to control UAVs used in a diverse spectrum of military and commercial applications. GCS encompasses sophisticated software and hardware components that allow users to remotely control and communicate with the UAVs.
The control is achieved by setting configurations for direct control or autonomous operations of UAVs. Generally deployed near or in operating or battlefield zones, GCSs can be located at different controlled bases. The increasing dependence on UAVs in battlefield operations, weather monitoring, law enforcement, research and several other areas makes GCSs a perfect solution for efficient, flexible control and monitoring of these vehicles.
Operations of GCSs rely heavily on processing units represented by computers powered by high-performance processors or bespoke systems built around embedded computing platforms. These stations use wireless data link subsystems for remotely communicating with unmanned vehicles.
There is a two-way transmission of commands, telemetry data and sensor data like imager, video and measurements between GCSs and unmanned vehicles. A GCS relies on cellular and digital or analog communication that holds an operational range of hundreds of kilometers. The station comes with single or multiple LED-powered anti-glare and high-brightness screens for easy view even in bright daylight.
The user interface of GCSs is intended to display information such as instrument overlays, mp screens, flight parameters and camera payload feeds. The station`s wireless data link communicates with control modules on unmanned vehicles for adjusting throttle and rotors. GCSs come with powerful computers for enabling operators of unmanned vehicles to install software for ensuring effective, compliant and safe operation. Moreover, GCSs feature different types of control systems such as joystick for aircraft or payload, mouse, keyboard and throttle controllers.
Susceptibility to Cyber Threats, a Major Challenge
As the use of UAVs becomes more widespread, they are vulnerable to cyber-attacks due to their reliance on virtual cyber networks and embedded computational systems for their operation. Such cyber intrusion can result in information corruption, defective operation of the control loop and denial of service attacks. The lack of adequate cyber security protections exposes critical mission data to the potential risk of cybersecurity attacks.
The increasing use of personal smart devices such as smartphones and tablets for sharing and receiving videos and images remotely from the UAV or the ground control station also introduces security vulnerabilities that allow hackers to gain access to networks and private data.
The efficiency of the communication link between a UAV and the GCS is a key aspect in military applications, delivery services, and search and rescue operations. All the communication between the UAVs and ground station controller typically use the Wi-Fi network, which is vulnerable to security breaches. The use of an unencrypted Wi-Fi to communicate and control UAVs allows any individual to connect and hack.
The two-way link between the ground station and the UAV is vulnerable to GPS spoofing attack. GPS enables a UAV`s navigation, and lack of encryption of the signals allows for a GPS-spoofing attack. In GPS spoofing, fake GPS coordinates are transmitted to the control system and allows the UAV to be hijacked and in complete control of the attacker.
