Skydrones Smartlink

Broadband Digital Datalink with Integrated Onboard Computer

Two HD video channels, telemetry and control with ultra low latency and range up to 20 km

There is no need to use multiple separate telemetry systems anymore. SmartLink features AES secured 2x HD video channels, telemetry and manual control ultra low-latency transmission with the range up to 20km.

VIDEO

Two microHDMI input ports support up to [email protected] fps video input with ultra low latency.

TELEMETRY

Telemetry allows system configuration, mission planning, status monitoring and much more.

CONTROL

Simply connect USB joystick in SmartAP GCS and get full manual control with less than 20 ms latency.

GROUND Module

Ground module is very compact and lightweight, it has micro USB connector to interact with any kind of device – laptops, smartphones, tablets, desktop computers supported. All you need to do is connect it and open SmartAP GCS App.

Ground module features active cooling system which allows the module to withstand high ambient temperatures making it reliable even in harsh environments.

2×2 MIMO technology provides higher bandwidth, lower latency and longer range.

SOFTWARE

SmartLink was specifically designed to be used with SmartAP GCS – powerful cross-platform ground control station. SmartAP GCS supports:

  • 2x HD video streams display
  • Full camera controls
  • Video recording on microSD card
  • Image capture on microSD card
  • Radio settings configuration
  • Drone control joystick
  • Payload control joystick

SmartAP GCS can be used on any platform and operating system including MacOS, Windows, iOS, Android and Linux.

SmartAP GCS provides all status information on radio link including RSSI, SNR, packets and allows to dynamically change all major settings. For instance, operating frequency, bandwidth or power can be change just with a one click. Remote module configuration is done automatically via ground module.

AES Encryption as Standard

Connection is AES encrypted and network key can be easily changed anytime when it’s needed.

Drone Communication

The existing approach of how drones communicate wirelessly needs an improvement. Watch this video of Kirill Shilov, founder of Sky-Drones explaining current challenges and the way how Sky-Drones aim to bring a solution.

“Just imagine one compact onboard module to which you can connect multiple cameras, autopilot, payload etc and it will do broadband long range communication…”
