UAVOS recently released the pMDDLRadio Data Link, an advanced UAS communication system.
The plug and play device offers a solutions that packages all drone communication into one RF channel, according to a news release. Separate solutions are used for control, telemetry and payload to reduce costs and weight.
An open architecture system, the data link enables full duplex wideband with cybersecurity protection, digital link, error correction techniques and high-rate communication in the Uplink (UPL) and Downlink (DNL) channels.
The pMDDLRadio, weighing 23 grams and featuring power transmission of up to 1 Watt in a small form factor, is well suited for UAS, UGVs and other robotic applications. It can be used both as an Airborne Data Terminal and as Ground Data Terminal. It can download real-time video images, data and information from most available sensors.
The solution uses proprietary radio technology that finds its way around obstructions, enabling it to carry a clear and solid radio signal. It offers line-of-sight range of 40 to 120 miles and a single link for control, telemetry and real-time full HD video.
“Combining proven technologies, miniaturization and advanced algorithms, the new pMDDLRadio Data Link System provides real-time secured information from unmanned platforms as well as from a range of different sensors, and allows enhanced situational awareness for better decision making,” said Aliaksei Stratsilatau, UAVOS chairman of the board and lead developer, according to the release. “UAVOS’s high-end communication systems have already been installed on our unmanned helicopters, as well as on fixed-wing UAV.”
