Airpro-1 : RF Transceiver


Air Pro-1 digital data link system specifically designed for miniature and micro-sized UAVs and other unmanned platforms with strict SWaP constraints. The Air Pro-1 provides full duplex digital communication, using RF transceiver to reduce the form factor of the device. The modulation scheme used is QPSK, maintaining high data link performance with a high fade margin. This feature makes it ideal for tactical unmanned systems with limited power budgets. The Air Pro-1 can downlink real-time serial data and LAN, information from a wide range of sensors. With high spectral efficiency and with encrypted data.
