MP21283X MicroPilot's Triple Redundant UAV Autopilot

Triple redundancy (3X) gives autopilot technology the reliability necessary to safely carry out sensitive flight missions and transport valuable payloads. A triple redundant arrangement is comprised of three similar software and hardware systems. If any one of the three systems fails, the remaining two take over, offering a double redundancy arrangement. If one of the other two systems should fail, the third takes over. An additional mechanism is also included to oversee these three systems. Triple redundant systems are highly tolerant of autopilot hardware failures.

The Advantages of Commercial UAV Autopilots over Open Source Alternatives
This white paper points out the drawbacks of open source UAV autopilots over the advantages of a commercial solution. With open source alternatives, customers may have to share their code modifications with competitors or delay production due to complications. In addition, open source companies typically are not able to invest in as much high-tech production equipment as commercial manufacturers.
