Extending the Range of a Low-Power UAV Radio

Published: 25 Nov 2019

NuWaves NuPower XtenderNuWaves 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.

Read the article on NuWaves’ website

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.
