Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in operation today are designed around a single mission payload. The payload is located in the UAS and is controlled remotely using a human computer interface (HCI) connected at a tactical control station (TCS). Given the current configuration and architecture, implementing a new payload in the UAS is exceedingly difficult and requires changing software in a multitude of systems, terminals, processors, and stations. There is a great need for a common interface for all payloads that may be carried by the UAS and an open system architecture to facilitate the integration of new and differing payloads. These improvements will provide higher performance and minimize obsolescence. The Navy has met these needs with the modular mission payload control software (MMPCS) capable of controlling each payload according to that payload's unique interface.
