Integrasys Optimises Satellite Communications for UAV Operations

Integrasys and Acorde have collaborated to integrate Satmotion Pocket, the auto-commissioning system from Integrasys, into Acorde’s Block-Up Converters (BUCs) for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).

The joint integration makes it possible for operators to receive the benefits of Satmotion Pocket in a UAV environment. The integration of the solution within Acorde’s BUCs enables UAVs to operate more efficiently, optimising energy consumption due to increased signal pointing accuracy. 

UAVs are able to automatically connect to the right satellite, therefore using less energy and minimising potential interference caused by inaccuracies in pointing. 

Satmotion Pocket is a useful application for measuring Copol, Xpol and ASI, and feeding this information back to the user in a readable format. 

By detecting any anomalies before they become a problem, the tool prevents any disruption to the satellite signal and limits the possibility of service-degrading disruption. It is also available as a mobile app.
