NuWaves Engineering, a leading developer of radio frequency and microwave solutions for unmanned aerial systems (UAS), has released an article explaining how low-power UAV radio systems designed for short-distance communications can be used in smaller UAS platforms as an inexpensive and reliable means of communications over greater distances.
The article explains:
- How UAV radio bandwidth and modulation settings depend on the application data throughput requirements
- How radio link performance may suffer significantly at longer ranges due to low power output
- How RF power amplifiers can be used to provide longer range and high data rates for UAV communications applications
RF power amplifiers can extend the usable range of low-power UAV radio systems for a wide variety of applications such as telemetry, ISR, and tactical communications. To find out more, read the article on NuWaves’ website.
