Commtact Mini-Micro Data Link SystemCommtact Ltd., a developer and manufacturer of communications systems, has announced the introduction of its new Mini-Micro Data Link System (M2DLS).

Weighing 60 g, measuring 6x5x2 cm and with a power transmission of between 0.25 to 1 Watts, the M2DLS is ideal for small UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles), small VTOL UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), and other robotics applications, micro size platforms and sensors which are sensitive to size, weight, and power (SwaP).

The system uses open architecture and enables full duplex wideband with cybersecurity protection, digital link, error correction techniques and high-rate communication in the Uplink (UPL) and Downlink (DNL) channels. It supports up to 6 antennas simultaneously for multi-coverage support.

The M2DLS is available to be used both as an Airborne Data Terminal and as Ground Data Terminal. It can download real-time video images, LAN, serial data and information from most available sensors.

Shai Palti, Commtact CEO, commented: “Combining proven technologies, miniaturization, and advanced algorithms, the new Mini-Micro Data Link System provides real-time secured information from micro unmanned platforms as well as from a range of different sensors, and allows enhanced situational awareness for better decision making. Commtact’s high-end communication systems are installed on many of the UAVs in Israel, as well as on many other different manned and unmanned platforms in Israel and abroad.”
