Leighton Buzzard, UK – Custom Consoles has completed a suite of technical furniture for Southampton University. Working in partnership with Alton-based systems integrator Broadcast Networks, the project included a control suite and support facilities for each of two vehicles required to control flying drones and other forms of robotic device.

This activity forms part of the university’s engagement in a wide range of research programmes such as Atmospheric Science Through Robotic Aircraft (ASTRA), which aims to provide very low cost platforms for science missions such as pollution monitoring and weather prediction.
