Published: 15 Jan 2021 by

Mobilicom, a leading developer of mission-critical communications solutions for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles) and other robotic platforms, has partnered with Unmanned Systems Technology (“UST”) to demonstrate their expertise in this field. The ‘Platinum’ profile highlights how their solutions can be used to deliver secure wireless technology for unmanned applications, as well as how their SkyHopper brand can enable smart, scalable operations for commercial and industrial drones and robotics.

The MCU-30 is a family of 4G/IP ad-hoc wireless mobile communications units that provide high-performance transmission of HD video, data and VoIP without the need for any existing infrastructure. The compact, lightweight systems are ideal for drones and robotics with low SWaP (size, weight and power) requirements.

The multifunctional units support a variety of on-the-move network topologies, including Mobile Point-to-Point, Mobile Point-to-Multi-Point, Mobile Multi-Point-to-Multi-Point, Mobile MESH, Extended MESH and Collaborative MESH.

The MCU-200 is a family of 4G/IP ad-hoc wireless mobile communications units that provide high-performance transmission of HD video, data and VoIP without the need for any existing infrastructure. Designed for large-scale mobile networks, the systems are ideal for mobile UAV and drone command posts on land, at sea and in the air.

The multifunctional units support a variety of on-the-move network topologies, including Mobile Point-to-Point, Mobile Point-to-Multi-Point, Mobile Multi-Point-to-Multi-Point, Mobile MESH, Extended MESH and Collaborative MESH.

HPA - High-Power AmplifiersMobilicom’s high-power amplifiers (HPAs) enhance transmission and reception capabilities for UAV communications under both line-of-sight (LOS) and challenging non-line-of-sight (NLOS) conditions.

Available in standard frequency ranges of 700-850 MHz and 2.3-2.7 GHz (additional frequencies available upon request), the lightweight, compact modules provides seamless plug-and-play integration with our Mobile MESH multifunctional communication units as well as wireless LTE/Wi-MAX/Wi-Fi/OFDMA/OFDM/TDD based units. The HPA modules also support a range of third-party antenna configurations.

The SkyHopperCOMBO is a multifunctional broadband wireless data link that can use existing LTE-based infrastructure or its own built-in SDR capabilities, and incorporates an advanced ICE Cybersecurity suite. Designed for commercial, industrial and public safety drones as well as other robotic platforms, it ensures mission continuity even in challenging urban and NLOS environments.

The COMBO solution also includes CONTROLiT, an intuitive cloud-based software package that enables easy device configuration, network management, tracking and access to operational logs and statistics.

SkyHopper PRO provides a bi-directional data link for commercial and industrial drones in both LOS and NLOS environments, enabling fleet management, autonomous operations, and transmission of real-time full HD video.

The highly secure SkyHopper PRO supports both Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint communication, enabling applications such as multi-drone operations and drone camera broadcasting to multiple receivers.

SkyHopper ONE is a wireless communication unit specially designed for drones and robotics, providing both broadcast and unicast transmission modes for robust data links even in NLOS environments.

The compact and lightweight point-to-point solution is highly secure and can deliver real-time full HD video.

The SkyHopper Pro V combines a bi-directional drone data link with powerful video processing capabilities, and includes dual video inputs and outputs, dual built-in video encoder/decoders, three camera interfaces, and local recording ability onto microSD card.

The secure point-to-point communication system supports long-range LOS applications as well as NLOS operation in urban and cluttered environments.
