UAVOS has announced the release of the pMDDLRadio Data Link, an advanced UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) communications system designed as an easy plug & play device that packages all drone communications (control, telemetry and payload) into a single RF channel, reducing cost and weight.
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.
With a weight of 23g, dimensions of 40x50x12mm, and power transmission of up to 1 Watts, the pMDDLRadio is ideal for not only UAVs but also UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles) and other robotic applications. The system complies with aerospace standard DO-160, making it compatible with a range of power supplies. The pMDDLRadio can be used both as an Airborne Data Terminal and as a Ground Data Terminal. It can download real-time video images, data and information from most available sensors.
Aliaksei Stratsilatau, UAVOS Chairman of the board and lead developer, commented: “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. UAVOS’s high-end communication systems have already been installed on our unmanned helicopters, as well as on fixed-wing UAVs.”
Key features of the pMDDLRadio data link include:
- Superior UAV communication through NLOS (non-line-of-sight) and urban areas using proprietary radio technology that finds its way around obstructions to carry a clear and solid radio signal
- Line-of-sight range of 40 – 120 miles
- Security and encryption
- Broadband link enabling real-time full HD video
- Single link for control, telemetry and real-time full HD video
- Small form factor and light weight
Aliaksei Stratsilatau also commented: “UAVOS will be an exhibitor at Xponential 2019 in Chicago, with a major presence covering its entire range of commercial unmanned aircraft, defence, and helicopter UAV products and services, moreover, a number of products will be shown for the first time.”
