Built to Aviation Standards, for a new standard on UAVs

SkyLink is the lowest SWaP Control and Non-Payload Communications (CNPC) datalink engineered to satisfy the requirements of DO-362A industry requirements. Developed to Design Assurance Level (DAL) C for both hardware (DO-254C) and software (DO-178C) to ensure your aircraft, cargo, and passengers are secure.

Low SWaP

The SkyLink ARS (Airborne Radio System) weighs only 125 grams and draws a maximum of 10-watts from the aircraft’s power supply. Increase your aircraft’s flight endurance while integrating a certifiable Airborne CNPC that utilizes protected aviation spectrum for maximum C2 link performance.
