Belgium achieves 100km single BVLOS flight

SwissDrones used SDO 50 V2 VTOL to complete the first commercial BVLOS (beyond the line of sight) power line inspection in Belgium. The flight took place in Belgium, with a single flight exceeding 100 kilometers and a flying distance of more than 2 hours.

SDO 50 V2 UAS (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle System) is used to safely and effectively inspect strategic areas and assets, and can operate in extreme weather conditions. Suitable for aerial inspections of oil and natural gas drilling platforms, as well as inspections of pipelines, wind farms, power lines, railway tracks, and open-pit mining. Unmanned helicopters can operate when manned operations are not feasible or risk or cost is too high.

In addition to inspection, SDO 50 V2 can also be used for environmental monitoring, terrain and vegetation mapping. Further applications include the detection of exhaust emissions and nuclear radiation. A similar task is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.

30-200 KM Video & Data and telemetry data link

100 KM long range Video & Data and telemetry for UAV

Flydragon long-distance video&data transmission, and remote control integrated data link for drone single BVLOS flight products provide highly reliable communication connections for industrial-grade unmanned systems.  has strong anti-interference performance, stable signal, rich interface types, supply30-200KM link custom made.,

The Flydragon-SDI data link has a built-in industrial-grade high-performance H.264 image encoder, supports SDI interface video input, realizes three-in-one image transmission, data transmission, and remote control. The ground end outputs a video stream through a network interface and uses computer software to decode The decoding software has local storage and forwarding functions. The end-to-end image delay is at least 250ms.

typical application
When users choose SDI interface pods, they need to choose Flydragon-SDI data link radio. InfoFly-SDI has a built-in high-performance industrial-grade SDI interface encoder that outputs H.264 code stream.

Figure 2. Typical application of Flydragon-SDI data link
Airborne end: SDI interface connects to pod or PTZ camera; COM1 interface connects to flight control data transmission interface for data transmission between flight control and ground station; SBUS1 interface connects to flight control for manual remote control flight; SBUS2 interface Connect PTZ to control PTZ. If the gimbal supports data transmission port control, InfoFly-SDI has 4 data transmission interfaces, and it can also support the gimbal control through the data transmission port.
Ground end: LAN port connects to the computer, receives H.264 high-definition image code stream and performs software decoding. The decoding software has functions such as local storage and network forwarding. The COM1 port is used to connect the flight control ground station to complete the telemetry remote control data transmission; the COM2 port can be used to control the gimbal and pan/tilt; the PPM1 remote control interface is connected to the first remote control through the trainer line to control the flight; the PPM2 remote control interface is passed The trainer line is connected to a second remote control for controlling pods or other loads. If the PTZ on the airborne end is controlled by a digital transmission interface, the ground needs to connect the PTZ control box to the corresponding digital transmission interface.
