ATMOSPHERE is a leading developer of satellite connectivity solutions for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and drones. Our SATCOM technology is used to enable BVLOS command, control and communication for long-range UAS operating around the world, and has been selected by leading industry figures and institutions such as Thales, Airbus, the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), and the French National Space Research Institute (CNES).

Satellite connectivity solutions

We are currently the only European company to offer Iridium Certus 100-based SATCOM products for UAVs, and have also developed the world’s first Iridium-certified 5G/LEO terminal. These solutions enable global coverage and connectivity, and provide the utmost in safety and reliability even under highly challenging conditions.

PLANET 9770 UAV-F Terminal

World’s first certified 5G/Iridium Certus SATCOM terminalPLANET 9770 UAV SATCOM Terminal

The PLANET 9770 UAV-F terminal combines the reliability of the Iridium Certus 100 satellite service with the ultra-fast data speeds of 5G, delivering an unprecedented level of global connectivity for UAVs. It delivers native IP connectivity with midband throughput (88kbps MT, 22kbps MO) in Certus mode and broadband throughput (up to 615 mbs) in 4G/5G mode.

The versatile connectivity solution can be equipped with high- or low-profile antenna options, and includes an integrated GNSS receiver for PNT as well as serial, Ethernet and Wi-Fi interfaces.
