Vehicle Interface Program (VIP)

The REMUS 600 utilizes the same Vehicle Interface Program (VIP) as our family of vehicles. This highly intuitive VIP simplifies vehicle maintenance, mission planning, vehicle checkout and data analysis; and will run on any PC or laptop operating under Windows® XP or Windows 7. Communication between the vehicle and the host is conducted via a 100 Base-T Ethernet connection or Wi-Fi. Among other features, the VIP includes:

  • An integrated text editor for construction of the mission file.
  • A map view that illustrates the planned mission for review.
  • Automatic error checking performed on all aspects of the planned mission, with warning messages that appear if any mission parameters are incorrect.
  • A set of quick-look indicators that display system status, where green indicates OK and red indicates a fault.
