The PLANET 9770 FTI (Flight Test Instrument) Terminal is ideal for the development of prototype drone platforms, and can be easily integrated into a wide range of airframes including rotary and fixed-wing. Global midband connectivity is provided via the Iridium Certus 100 service, with up to 22 kbps throughput MO (from the aircraft) and 88 kbps MT (to the aircraft).
The terminal is based around a fanless SMARC module with a Linux OS. Two Ethernet and two serial interfaces are provided for connection of external sensors and equipment, and an integrated GNSS receiver delivers autonomous location and timing. The unit utilises an aerospace-grade low-profile passive antenna, and is currently undergoing DO-160 qualification.
