Drone operations

Ovzon provides Beyond Line Of Sight (BLOS), secure, broadband communication for drones.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Systems are becoming increasingly widespread, used for numerous applications from adventure filming to real-time mapping and crop monitoring.

Wider-range operations, such as pipeline inspection or forestry monitoring, require the UAV to operate beyond line-of-sight of their controller. Current solutions are limited in utility: larger, heavier UAVs adapted from military technology can link via satellite, but are very expensive; smaller drones lack the power/space to carry traditional satcoms equipment, and so are confined to areas with mobile or WLAN coverage. Most solutions are limited in on-the-move bandwidth.

Ovzon technology is designed to solve exactly this problem – to enable high-data rate communication between controllers and drones over the horizon, using a new generation of compact, high-bandwidth terminal equipment, combined with dedicated, steerable satellite coverage.
