UAS with Sky Drone FPV for sea turtle research and conservation

A new paper that was published in the Endangered Species Research journal last month shows how Sky Drone FPV can be used for sea turtle conservation. Quote: Incorporating the use of cellular networks to trigger autonomous UAV missions or remotely fly FPV is already in development (Sky Drone FPV). If successful, this will reduce the need to visit remote field sites in monitoring programmes (with the caveat that there is cellular network coverage), thus saving resources that can be used on other initiatives. Abstract: The use of satellite systems and manned aircraft surveys for remote data collection has been shown...

Using LTE when flying 700km/h.

Using LTE when flying 700km/h.

One of the common questions regarding the use of 4G/LTE on drones is if the connection still works at high speeds. Especially in regard to fast flying fixed wings UAVs. In particular the Doppler Effect is often stated as the main concern.Ericsson actually tested this - not on a drone but on a jet! The results showed that the PCs were able to connect to the internet with a maximum downlink speed of 19 megabits per second while flying at 700km/h and with the force of 4G. A seamless handover from one radio base station to the next was possible...

4k Low-Latency Drone Video Streaming with Sony RX0

Sony recently released the new Sony RX0 camera that has a large 1.0-type Exmor CMOS sensor that outputs 4K video. Sony was able to put everything in a  tiny 59 x 40.5 x 29.8 mm duralumin body weighing just 100g.This camera is perfect to use on a drone and directly integrates with our Sky Drone Link 4k solution to provide a low latency 4k UHD downlink.

Introducing Sky Drone Link 4K - Now Available for Order

Sky Drone Link 4K has just gone up for sale on www.skydrone.aero at $1,899 and ships globally. Sky Drone Link 4K is the world's first low latency 4K / UHD streaming solution. It is now possible to transmit video of any professional 4K / UHD camera over virtually unlimited distances. The camera needs to have an HDMI output and Sky Drone Link will transmit its 4K UHD or FullHD video over the 4G / LTE network to any receiving endpoint in the world. May it be tens of kilometers or even thousands of miles away. Sky Drone Link 4K has been designed with several scenarios...

Sky Drone FPV 2 and Sky Drone Link Performance with Low Signal Strength / Bad Cellular Mobile Connection

 A while back, we've took a quick video to demonstrate Sky Drone FPV 2 performance on a very bad cellular connection. Our dynamic bandwidth adaptation (available in Sky Drone FPV 2 and Sky Drone Link) takes care of such changing conditions and automatically adapts the transmitted data to the changed conditions. Read more about: How it works. Here is the video:  Obviously, at different bandwidths, conditions and network capabilities, different amounts of data are being transmitted. While our system usually targets 2 Mbps, the used bandwidth can vary. Note: command and control data is negligible. Here you can find out How...
