UAVOS has announced the introduction of the company’s new Auto-Tracking Antenna System, a portable ground-to-air antenna designed for incorporation into unmanned aerial systems (UAS). The tracking antenna enables long-range data transmission, and combined with UAVOS’ ground control unit, it significantly increases the quality and range of stable communication transmission.
The new Auto-Tracking Antenna System has 2 communication channels with different types of antennas. The first antenna is a telemetry radio link that works at 900 MHz frequency and has a range of 100km+, while the second handles high-speed video communication with a data transfer rate of up to 25 Mbit/s.
UAVOS’s Auto-Tracking Antenna System allows for the installation of different modems and antennas, and the turntable system automatically orients the installed antennas towards the UAV.
“Our customers require a system that is simple to put together, turn on, and works,” commented Aliaksei Stratsilatau, UAVOS Chairman of the board and lead developer. “They want to achieve high data-rates and reliable HD video transmission. The new Tracking Antenna System enables video streaming out to distances of up to 100km while maintaining high throughput and strong signal strength. The Auto-Tracking Antenna System delivers a versatile solution for a truly networked unmanned aircraft.”
Designed for ease-of-use, quick assembly, and portability, the Auto-Tracking Antenna System can be assembled and deployed in less than 15 minutes. The portable and lightweight design can be completely disassembled, with the main dual-antenna system breaking down into eight individual parts. The entire system fits into most standard-sized SUVs for easy transportation and compact storage.
