SDR Technology, UAV Data Links & Tracking Antennas for Long-Range Communications

Simpulse Visit Website

Simpulse is a leading developer of high-performance, long-range radio data links for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles). Our data link solutions, based on advanced proprietary Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology, are ideal for high-reliability unmanned systems video and data communications in challenging environments.

SL200 Software-Defined Radio Link Module for UAV

Our SDR technology, based on state-of-the-art adaptive algorithms and dynamic waveforms, provides a flexible approach that allows a single hardware platform to meet a variety of mission requirements via simple software updates. Our robotics and UAV data link solutions feature unrivalled sensitivity, robust resistance to Doppler effects, multipath effects and interference, and highly dynamic adaptation to varying transmission situations.

In additional to our standard products, we can also adapt and develop customized solutions based on our SDR technology for your unique UAV and UGV data link requirements.

SL200 Software Defined Radio Link Module

Long-range video & data link for UAVs and UGVs

SL200 uav data linkThe SL200 SDR module is the basis for all our data link solutions.

Two SDR modules make up a bidirectional long-range radio link for drones and UGVs that provides uplink and downlink of data and telemetry, and downlink of live HD video.

With unmatched sensitivity, the SL200 provides robust long-range performance with very low transmission power, making it ideal for SWaP (size, weight and power)-limited applications. In addition to available frequency bands, the system can be adapted to work with any bands from 70 Mhz to 6 Ghz upon request. The SL200 modem also shows enhanced security thanks to its proprietary waveforms and AES 128/256 encryption.
