Harvest Technology & Inmarsat Demonstrate Satellite Direct UAV BVLOS Capability 

Harvest Technology has successfully trialled direct to satellite video streaming and control functionality on a Matrice 600 UAV, with streams near real-time at less than 100kbps over the Inmarsat ELERA network via GEO constellation By Phoebe Grinter / 07 Jun 2022

Harvest Technology has introduced its latest innovation in conjunction with Inmarsat Aviation – satellite direct Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) capability, enabled and proven through live payload control, over ultra-low bandwidth with ultra-high point-to-point encryption.

Using an updated Harvest Technology Group (HTG) Nodestream protocol on the TTP BRMworks Blueprint terminal with Omnidirectional antenna, HTG has successfully trialled direct to satellite video streaming and control functionality on a Matrice 600 UAV, with streams near real-time (1-2s latency) at less than 100kbps over the Inmarsat ELERA network via GEO constellation.

Complete with onboard satellite terminal and all associated hardware at less than 15kg weight, the UAV was locally controlled with no additional hardware or connectivity required at ground control station.

This innovation enables simple, clean, back-to-base video from a small drone from anywhere in the world.
