pMDDLRadio
DATA LINK SYSTEM

an advanced high power
long range broadband COFDM
communication system for UAV

 

Overview

pMDDLRadio is an advanced high power long range broadband COFDM communication system for UAV. Based on the new Microhard pMDDLxxxx, it provides the bandwidth and range needed for complex data intensive UAS applications. Designed to be all-in-one solution: simultaneous transmission of full HD video and autopilot control \ telemetry data. The board has a system controller for open platform design. Available in three versions: OEM module with matching connectors; module in rugged aluminium enclosure; module in enclosure with external 10W (25W) BDA amplifiers for ultra long range communication (40 - 100 miles depending on the antennas and tracking system availability).

 

Features

  • Military connectors: data&power - Harwin M80; RF - Hirose
