      Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are becoming a significant asset to the military. This has given rise to the development of the Vehicle Control and Simulation System (VCSS), a low-cost ground support and control system deployable to any UAV testing site, with the capability to support ground crew and pilot training, real-time telemetry simulation, distribution, transmission and reception, mission planning, and Global Positioning System (GPS) reception. This paper describes the development of the VCSS detailing its capabilities, demonstrating its use in the field, and showing its novel use of internet technology for vehicle control telemetry distribution.
