Cobham Aerospace Communications is a leading global developer of state-of-the-art avionics, connectivity and SATCOM (satellite communications) solutions for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), drones, RPAS (remotely piloted aircraft systems) and other unmanned vehicles.
Our innovative, cutting-edge drone satellite communication designs enable enhanced performance and more efficient communications and control for tactical UAVs.
Aviator UAV 200
Superior integrated SATCOM connectivity for drone satellite communication
AVIATOR UAV 200 is the world’s smallest and lightest Inmarsat SwiftBroadband solution for UAV SATCOM. Providing an all-in-one satellite communication and control package, AVIATOR UAV 200 has been size- and weight-optimized for small tactical UAVs and drones, weighing in at just 1.45kg in a compact 24 x 16 x 6cm form factor.
With this new and unprecedented SwaP-conscious capability, unmanned aircraft designers can take full advantage of the higher speed connectivity of modern satellite networks, while still maximising UAV range, endurance and operational use.
Class 4 SwiftBroadband with full Inmarsat hemisphere coverage to 5° elevation
24 x 16 x 6cm
DC Power (14 – 28VDC) Nav in via RS-232 or Ethernet
UAV satellite communication with high-reliability secure global coverage
Inmarsat SwiftBroadband provides global always-on high-speed data for reliable UAV satellite communication and control. Available everywhere except extreme polar regions and with greater than 99.95% uptime, the service provides the AVIATOR UAV 200 with a beyond line of sight (BVLOS) back-to-base connection and real-time payload sensor feeds.
AVIATOR UAV 200 is compatible with government-grade encryption and secure satellite communications standards, including STU-IIIB, STE, TACLANE, KIV-7 and BRENT.
