SKIDER Link offers a bi-directional, redundant and encrypted data link between pilot, operator and data analysts. SKIDER Link works with almost any drone platform on the market. Depending on the degree of integration you require, SKIDER Link can be transparent to your existing applications or could be used to geo-reference payload data during flight and transmit it to several ground locations.
Redundant Communication Links
Combination of long range command and control (868MHz) with high date rate transmission (2.4GHz) and LTE (upon request for SKIDER Link Pro)
Robust and Encrypted Communication
Encrypted data traffic offers maximum protection against misuse and guarantees data protection
Automated Technolgy and Channel selection
Intelligent algorithms determine the best link technology for each data packet and avoide interference caused by DJI Lightbridge or RC transmitters to reduce link loss
Universal Sensor SDK
The Universial Sensor SDK allows to connect arbitrary sensors to SKIDER Link. USB, Ethernet and Serial conections are supported.
Configurable data sink for payload data
SD-card, network share, cloud service (except SKIDER Link Light). Ground Unit has an Ethernet interface for direct MAVLink connectivity and network based data sinks.
Onboard payload data buffering
In case of insufficient data rate or link loss, payload data is buffered on the platform. It is transmitted as soon as sufficient communication capabilities are restored. No data will be lost.
In-Flight Geo-Referencing and payload transmission
For selected sensors (e.g. Images, Video, Serial streams) payload data can be geo-referenced during flight and transmitted to several ground sinks including local storage or cloud services.
Wide Range of Supported Platforms
SKDIER Link is compatible with any MAVLink controller (e.g. Pixhawk, PX4) and DJI controller N3 & A3. In the transparent mode it is even more versatile and can serve as a serial wireless bridge for literally any platform and message format.
