When it comes to datalinks, there is rarely one solution to fit all situations.
We are here to offer our years of experience, to assist you in deciding which data link solution is best suited to your application.
At UAV Vision, we find there are 3 factors that lead to the adoption of a preferred solution:
- Required Operational Range
- Ease of Use
- Size, Weight and Power
For a system that requires users to view live video, as well as maintain a long operational range, the use of a COFDM IP Radio solution is best. *For the Technical Minded: Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing or COFDM, is a modulation scheme that divides a digital signal across many different signal carriers at the same time.
So what makes an IP Radio the best solution for unmanned aircraft operations?
- Required Operational Range – When using an IP Radio data link solution, a local area network (LAN) is created between the Ground Control Station and the ISR payload. Dependent on antenna configuration and power of the radio, an IP Radio solution is well suited to long range applications.
- Ease of Use – Once configured and connected, an IP Radio link can be ready in only seconds. Resulting in quicker deployment times, which creates increases in mission efficiency and effectiveness.
- Weight and Power – There are many options and configurations for IP Radio data links that once optimized, ensure that the Size, Weight and Power of the system remains low.UAV Vision gimbals, such as the CM100, are controllable and stream video over an Ethernet connection. This makes IP based radios the perfect datalink for UAV Vision gimbals.Minimise integration and setup time by using a pre-configure plug and play system that has been already tested with our gimbals. From short range to long range, UAV Vision have the experience and the solutions to meet all system requirements.
