Yuneec International and Mobilicom recently entered into a strategic partnership to develop two unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for both the commercial and federal markets.
The drones will be based on Yuneec’s hexacopter H520, which is known for its reliability, safety and precision, and Mobilicom´s SkyHopper and LTE technology, according to a news release. The H520 SkyHopper and H520 SkyHopper LTE will feature high-end cyber security and encryption, dedicated frequencies and interference-avoidance capabilities, and will be offered as customizable, flexible and scalable end-to-end solutions.
The complete systems will provide high-end validated encryption, dedicated and ISM frequency bands, software defined radio or LTE + secured server data links and ISM jamming resistance. Add-ons such as ruggedized controllers and remote viewing terminals, flexible payloads and optional capabilities such as RTK/PPK precision, networking and relay also are available.
The drones are well suited for long-range, non-line-of-sight, beyond-line of sight and urban operations for applications that include security, public safety, disaster relief, and naval operations.
