Innovative wireless communications and information systems developer Commtact has started 2023 with a successful field test of the company’s wireless data link, based on Omni directional antennas, the MDLS.

During the trial, Commtact’s capabilities in ground-to-ground communication were tested, with emphasis on the quality of the link and quality of the video received. The M2DLS was able to transmit 8 Mbps of high-quality video.

M2DLS Mini Wireless Data Link for micro drones

The MDLS is a single-unit digital data link system specifically designed for micro and small-size platforms which are sensitive to Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) making it ideal for tactical unmanned systems with limited power budgets.

The advanced system uses open architecture and enables full duplex wideband, digital link, error correction techniques and high-rate communication in the Uplink (UPL) and Downlink (DNL) channels .

The MDLS can downlink real-time video images, LAN, serial data and information from the most available sensors and combines proven technologies and standards with advanced algorithms, to provide reliability and high performance, for the harshest conditions.
