This novel communication technology means a great step towards aviation safety and security of the future. At the recent Farnborough International Airshow in the United Kingdom and the Red Bull Airpower in Zeltweg/Austria, the partners presented their innovation to a global audience of the aviation industry.
GNSS – Tracking Antenna System
Operating unmanned aerial vehicles requires communication solutions with increased performance and reduced interference. Future missions in the areas of public safety, industrial inspection as well as precision agriculture particularly demand a reliable long-distance and high-speed data connection.
PIDSO has developed an advanced GNSS Tracking Antenna System (gTAS) which is providing this stable connection through sophisticated tracking algorithms and a precise, directive antenna design. Due to its plug and play feature, easy and fast deployments in the field are guaranteed. The intelligent antenna system is integrated in a robust and powerful control technology system from AIT for advanced planning and execution of missions with unmanned aerial platforms. The aim is to provide a safe and stable high-speed data-link solution for beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) flights, enabling the full potential of unmanned aerial vehicles for applications like surveillance, disaster operations, industrial safety inspections and many more for the first time.
