Rpanion Electronics is a hardware and software developer for unmanned vehicles. We focus on development with the Ardupilot software stack.

Our major area of work is with companion computers (such as the Raspberry Pi). We are also experienced in MAVLink and ground station software development.

Companion computers do not directly issue low level commands to an unmanned vehicle. Rather, they do high level processing and communications. This includes computer vision, path planning or routing vehicle telemetry to 4G or Wi-Fi networks.

Until now, there has been limited hardware and software for the specific task of interfacing with Ardupilot hardware. Rpanion Electronics aims to develop simple and reliable hardware and software solutions for this. This enables companion computers to be easy and quickly integrated into unmanned vehicles.

Rpanion Electronics is run by Stephen Dade – you can find him on LinkedIn and Github. He is an able software, communications and electronics engineer, focusing on the Ardupilot and MAVLink ecosystems.

Stephen has worked with unmanned vehicles since 2010, competing in the UAV Challenge as part of the CanberraUAV team in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018. He is a member of the ArduPilot Development Team and a Chartered Engineer (CPEng) in Telecommunications and Electronics Engineering.

Stephen is available for custom development in all aspects of ArduPilot vehicles, including electrical system design, software integration and ArduPilot support.
