The changing altitude and direction of the aircraft creates polarization mismatch, signal degradation and non line of sight issues. These wireless link problems could lead to loss of connectivity and control of the aircraft.
While drones undergo rigorous testing and maintenance to ensure uptime in challenging aerial environments, the mission-critical antenna is often not tested in the same conditions. MP Antenna works with OEMs, and the entire value chain, to field test their antenna products where they face the biggest challenge: the real world.
To meet the needs of drone communications, MP Antenna has developed SwarmLink, a line of multi-polarized antennas built specifically for UAVs and drones that are used in industrial and military applications.
