Skyfront, a provider of hybrid-electric Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has announced a partnership with Silvus Technologies, a provider of Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) communications to combine Skyfront´s five-hour endurance Perimeter UAV with Silvus´ high-power StreamCaster radios, the company said.
The combined product, the Perimeter XLRS, can fly for up to 5 hours while maintaining command and control links and streaming real-time video up to 60 miles / 100 km from the ground control station.
This partnership has enabled UAV operators to inspect pipelines and power lines and perform surveillance missions across the world. The Perimeter´s onboard StreamCaster radio provides the Perimeter with a steady, reliable video and control link. The StreamCaster´s MIMO and beamforming technologies successfully overcome range limitations, signal attenuation and multipath interference, to allow the Perimeter XLRS to operate in environments where other data links typically fail, such as in maritime, mountain, and jungle deployments.
Skyfront manufactures the long endurance hybrid-electric multirotor drones, with proven flight times of 5 hours. Skyfront´s UAVs are designed and equipped for beyond-visual-line-of-sight missions, including video, telemetry and control links up to 60 miles (100 km) away from the ground control station.
Silvus Technologies, Inc. develops advanced MIMO technologies that are reshaping broadband wireless connectivity for mission critical applications.
