Skyfront and Silvus Technologies have made a partnership that combines Skyfront’s five-hour endurance Perimeter UAV with Silvus’ high-power StreamCaster radios.
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 60m/100 km from the ground control station.
The partnership has enabled UAV operators to inspect pipelines and power lines and perform surveillance missions across the world.
The Perimeter’s on-board 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.
Troy Mestler, CEO of Skyfron, commented: “The integration of the StreamCaster into the Perimeter line of UAVs has enabled it to fully utilize its extreme endurance and fly beyond-line-of-sight (BVLOS) missions with ease.”
Adding: “We are very excited to be partnering with Silvus Technologies to bring long-range aerial platforms into the mainstream.”
