Heimdall AI is a leading developer of satellite telemetry and AI-powered image processing systems for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). Our products are designed to enable the next generation of BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) and automated drone missions, and are ideal for a wide range of civilian and military applications such as mapping, inspection, SAR (search and rescue), and surveillance.
Micro Sat – Drone Telemetry Module
Satellite telemetry system for drone C2
Micro Sat is a plug-and-play bi-directional satellite telemetry system for reliable command and control (C2) of BVLOS drones. Telemetry data from the drone autopilot is streamed directly to the ground control station (GCS) and can be displayed on QGroundControl or Mission Planner.
Our telemetry systems use satellite constellations for drone communications, the datalink system is made up of a drone telemetry module and a ground module, and features dual-antenna architecture for enhanced path diversity.
Micro Sat provides seamless compatibility with the MAVLink protocol and leading commercial autopilots such as Pixhawk.
