AIRLink Editions: Core

Sky-Drones will provide the internal workings of the units without the external aluminium casing so as to integrate this directly into the manufacturing of your fleet. We will guide you through making sure the technical requirements are met on your UAV to comply with the needs of the AIRLink units. This unit design is specifically aimed at drone manufacturers producing medium-high volumes with deep integration of AIRLink into the UAVs. Sky-Drones offers its engineering and design team to fully support designers and manufacturers along the way.

AIRLink Editions: Enterprise

These AIRLink units come as we designed and manufactured them, and are ready to attach to your UAV immediately. Sky-Drones can provide a discounted rate per unit when buying for multiple drones in your UAV fleet, and will continually be on hand to ensure the integration is smooth and simple.
Sky-Drones recommends this unit design for low-medium volume production and benefits from easy installation, non-ITAR. All AIRLink units are manufactured in the UK and are shipped within 48 hours after receiving the order.

AIRLink Editions: Reference Design

Sky-Drones offers licensing for larger UAV manufacturers to build the units in-house, saving time and costs all round. This is recommended for drone manufacturers producing high volumes. The integration is the tightest of all 3 editions with schematics and CAD drawings offered as a standard. The Sky-Drones team including founder and CEO are on hand to work with you in your country of production to set up the manufacturing process. Allowing you to control your own volume of AIRLink units gives you complete freedom over your UAV enterprise.
