Bringing you the most advanced, effective, and sophisticated, drone
connectivity unit in the industry to date. Sky-Drones Technologies power drones for enterprise business solutions. As creators of full-stack UAV avionic technology, the company aims to accelerate the development and adoption of UAVs for enterprise. This year started off strong for Sky-Drones with an upgrade to their product range: the new and improved SmartLink.
Each SmartLink set contains an air and ground module. The air module is attached to the UAV whilst the ground module is connected to the ground control station. Improvements made to the air unit mean the system is capable of handling two real time HD video streams from CSI and HDMI
cameras, the CSI camera itself being an additional element included in the SmartLink set. Alongside this, a large array of payload interfaces are now embedded into the unit including USB, UART, I2C, and SPI for allowing tight integration with Sky-Drones’ hardware and software.
Improvements made to the ground control device include manufacturing this compact and lightweight module with a micro-USB connector, thus allowing the interaction with multiple devices including laptops, smart phones, tablets, and desktop computers. The addition of an adaptive fan
implements a cooling system which allows the module to withstand high ambient temperatures. This makes the entire system that much more reliable in harsh environments and increases longevity on lengthier missions.
The drone datalink and integrated onboard computer has a standard range of up to 20km. However, an unlimited flight range can be achieved thanks to Sky-Drones’ advancement in LTE connectivity. Connecting your UAV via LTE will enable an endless range, that being your UAVs remain within the LTE coverage area. Planning to cover a much larger area than your
coverage zone? Our specialized antennas will ensure your range reaches several dozens of kilometres further afield. For single or cluster drones in the surveillance, search and rescue, and delivery sectors, there has never been a more obvious solution to multi-drone control with unlimited possibilities.
In order to bring these additions to the attention of the UAV industry, Sky-Drones founder and CEO Kirill Shilov undertook a live webinar on Wednesday 24th February. This webinar included a full product unpackaging, demonstration of compatibility with Sky-Drones software, and a live Q&A from members of the audience. As a result, all the asked and
answered questions have become a permanent feature on the SmartLink product page on the Sky-Drones website.
The new and improved SmartLink hardware works in tight unison with Sky-Drones SmartAP GCS software, allowing completely autonomous flight control and communications from anywhere in the world. Now, pilots and drones no longer need to be in the same vicinity, allowing BVLOS flights to be planned and initiated quicker than ever before. Access to flight data and logs in Sky-Drones Cloud can be done so worldwide by all who are granted access with your personalized company login.
This product renovation has been a major advancement for the Sky-Drones team. Meeting the needs of enterprise business solutions and breaking the ceiling of UAV excellence is something the company is driven to exceed and making sure our products excel in every possible way is what we will continue working towards.
