Ground Communication Interface Unit

The Ground Communication Interface (GCIU) is a flexible and reconfigurable system that, although they have the same hardware components, may differ in their basic functions because of their configuration in different configurations. The equipment complies with the electrical/mechanical standards of avionics systems that perform signal processor, data concentrator and protocol converter functions. There are two options for The Ground Communication Interface. Option 1: The Ground Interface unit is capable of compressing the video data it receives with SD interfaces in accordance with H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 Link Communication Interface and transmitting the compressed video data it receives with Ethernet interfaces to the monitors Ground Control Station Interface, serial interfaces (RS-422). The unit that can convert Ethernet UDP protocol to RS-422. Option 2: Ground Control Station Communication Interface; It is the unit that works as a backup on the ground control station and that will allow communication with the Link Communication Interface units in the Link units. This communication can be managed through the management software via the management computer.
