Remote monitoring of unmanned aerial vehicle in experimental phase

In order to record the movement and real-time location of an unmanned aerial vehicle during the in-flight test phase, GEKO NAVSAT has developed a low-cost device capable of recording and transmitting kinematic and environmental parameters, and a software platform Capable of receiving on ground and real-time parameters and location of the unit in flight. The positioning solution has been based on the use of multiconstellation satellite navigation systems and radio communications systems capable of transmitting aircraft parameters to a ground base located several kilometres from the aircraft. The device has been implemented as a position beacon which after the grounding of the vehicle allows to receive its position according to facilitate its recovery.

In order to achieve a quick, miniaturised and low-cost solution the developed system has been based on the use of the KYNEO platform, which has been customised to meet the specific requirements of the project.
