Development of UAV flight control system using satellite communication
|Participants||SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation|
1. Development of “UTM’’ (Unmanned Aircraft Systems Traffic & Radio Management) system
【Flight and communication tests for high-altitude UAVs at Fukushima-Sky Park】
We conducted flight and communication tests on high-altitude UAVs, assumed to be connection points between satellites and BVLOS drones.
|Activities and NEWs||
We conducted the first communication test in the world that shared information such as location, altitude, direction, IDs, etc. every second between drones and helicopters that were considered as UAVs, and succeeded. Using the results of the test, we would like to use the experience and knowledge gained to design power saving wireless devices and UTM systems. We aim to create UTM systems that allow drones to fly in fire disaster scenes or underdeveloped ground communication areas.
