SkyLine

Cloud Managed BVLOS C2 Network

The world’s first purpose-built network to ensure DO-377 compliance for BVLOS Command & Control

Today, BVLOS approvals are highly dependent on waivers and recovery procedures for when a C2 link is lost, SkyLine focuses on preventing lost links altogether with the first certifiable aviation-grade CNPC network and radios.

The Network

SkyLine is the world’s first enterprise Control and Non-Payload Communications (CNPC) infrastructure management services built from the ground up to meet DO-377 and anticipated TSO C-213A for safety-critical UAS and AAM applications.

Though radio agnostic, leveraging our new DO-362A compliant SkyLink C-Band radios, SkyLine integrates certifiable aviation-grade hardware, software, and health & status services for seamless management of your mission and infrastructure.

“A reliable and predictable C2 link built to aviation standards (e.g., RTCA DO-362A) is a critical component in obtaining scalable BVLOS operations. The uAvionix SkyLink radios and SkyLine Command & Control infrastructure are an essential component of the Vantis deployment to obtain a path to commercially viable BVLOS operations in the State of North Dakota.”

– Jim Cieplak Program Manager of Vantis

Integrity Monitoring

Monitor and control aircraft location, see real-time health and status monitoring of signal strength, load balancing and roaming capabilities,  from the SkyLine Service Platform. SkyLine ensures your aircraft, cargo, and passengers are secure.

Dynamic Roaming

SkyLine oversees multiple ground radio stations to manage seamless make-before-break handoffs throughout your mission, ensuring a reliable link is never lost.

Built to Aviation Design Standards

Developed to Design Assurance Level (DAL) C for both hardware (DO-254) and software (DO-178), as well as the DO-362 MOPS established by RTCA as the standard for BVLOS flight.

Adaptable to your Mission

SkyLine is radio agnostic and can be deployed with a one-to-one Microlink ISM or SkyLink C-Band radio, offering active health & status monitoring & frequency hopping for maximum performance. A single SkyLine C-Band ground radio will allow up to 25 miles* of range. Fly local or scale your network to cover linear infrastructure or a large site. Add additional ground stations for nearly limitless flight range.

CNPC Radios

SkyLine supports both the ISM and C-Band spectrum. Start integrating and flying on SkyLine today with the easy and license-free ISM Band, then seamlessly transition to aviation-protected, enterprise ready, C-Band hardware to launch your operations into the professional UAS market.

SkyLink (C-Band)

SkyLink is an aviation-protected C-Band (5030-5091 MHz) bi-directional, Multiple Input & Single Output (MISO) dual Control and Non-Payload Communications (CNPC) radio system. Compliant with the RTCA DO-362A standard, SkyLink provides the information exchange required for operators to safely control, monitor, and manage a UAS. Accelerate your BVLOS approvals by leveraging SkyLink’s aviation-grade CNPC radios.
