Since wireless data links are the only connection between the base station and the unmanned vehicle, their reliable function leads to immense importance.
A careful analysis of the context and the interaction of high-frequency simulation and measurements in the laboratory and on the vehicle are the rank and file for a solid antenna development
Since its establishment, PIDSO creates antenna systems for unmanned systems and gained experience in many different application areas with the following objectives in the recent years:
- Weight and size reduction (SWaP) for longer range and higher payload
- Aerodynamically neutral integration of antennas on the surface of the aircraft (for example, carbon fiber structures)
- Integration of different frequencies into one antenna enclosure
The business segment Unmanned Systems intensively deals with reducing size, weight and power requirements (reduced SWaP) of wireless data transmission systems to optimize the range and payload of unmanned aerial vehicles especially.
Last but not least, the development team of PIDSO is also concerned with the integration of antennas into existing structures, such as composite materials. For a seamless integration, the patented PIDSO method for manufacturing carbon antennas can be deployed for maximum weight advantage.
