Honeywell provides small satellite drone communication system

According to Honeywell’s August 16, 2021 announcement] Honeywell has provided a new type of satellitedrone communication system  for Pipistrel’s fixed-wing Surveyor and Nuuva V300/V20 UAV platforms. The system has the advantages of light weight and high performance.

Honeywell’s new drone-borne satellite drone communication system  weighs only 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds), which is 90% lighter than the company’s similar systems and 30% lighter than competitors’ similar products. It can achieve global supervision similar to that of large aircraft platforms. Distance (BVLOS) data relay/connection service is completely decoupled from the complex terrestrial BVLOS infrastructure.

Based on the Small UAV SATCOM system, the UAV platform can realize air-to-ground transmission of real-time video streams with global coverage, supporting functions such as beyond-horizon freight. In addition, based on this system, the small UAV platform can maintain communication connections in remote areas/sea areas that cannot be covered by the ground communication network, and effectively perform related tasks.

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.
