NGC Aerospace Ltd is a high-tech Canadian SME located in Sherbrooke (Quebec) whose mission is the analysis, simulation, design and deployment of artificial vision, guidance, navigation and control (GNC) systems for autonomous vehicles for space, aeronautical and terrestrial applications.
Since 2001, NGC’s team of engineers have contributed to the successful completion of more than 90 RD projects and flight programmes with national and international space agencies as well as a number of major aerospace companies in Canada, Europe and the United States.
The algorithms, simulators, real-time software and integrated systems designed by NGC aim at increasing the autonomy, the performance, the reliability and the safety of vehicles while, at the same time, reducing their operational costs.
NGC’s main clients are international and national space agencies, governmental agencies, as well as North American and European aerospace companies.
NGC’s main services include the analysis, design, implementation, validation and flight operation of innovative algorithms and reliable real-time software required for:
• visual feature detection/recognition, visual odometry, hazards detection;
• navigation, data fusion, filtering, parameters identification;
• autonomous guidance, hazards avoidance;
• control (multivariable, robust, predictive, parameter-varying);
• failure detection/identification.
These activities also extend to mathematical modelling of dynamical systems and the development of the associated high-fidelity engineering simulators required for the validation of the software.
