As the use of drones or unmanned aircraft (UAV) grow, businesses and Governments are seeing significant demand and growth in areas like transport, military, logistics and commercial sectors.
Drones are controlled by a ground control system (GSC) which operates remotely or autonomously. Wireless connectivity lets pilots view the drone and its surroundings from a birds-eye perspective. Users can also leverage apps to pre-program specific GPS coordinates and create an automated flight path for the drone.
The data links use a radio-frequency (RF) transmission to transmit and receive information to and from the UAV. These transmissions share information like location, distance and location to target, distance to the pilot, payload information, airspeed, altitude and more. An autonomous drone can conduct a safe flight without the intervention of a pilot.
HTZ Communications offers dedicated features for drone management including:
In the defence and security sector, UAVs are used as target decoys, for combat missions, research and development. Their growing use has reduced losses in the field and enables the execution of high profile and time-sensitive missions.
Anti-drone systems are used to detect or intercept unwanted unmanned aerial vehicles. More often, anti-drone technology is deployed to protect areas like airports, critical infrastructure, large public spaces and military installations and battlefield sites.
Counter-drones are used to jam the signal between the drone and drone pilot.
