4 August 2000 Airborne network system for the transmission of reconnaissance image data
Author Affiliations +
Airborne network systems to transmit reconnaissance data form UAVs have been investigated. An airborne experimental system has been developed as testbed to investigate different concepts of the communication between UAV sensor platform, relay platform and ground station. It is based on an Eurocopter BO 105 helicopter and a Dornier DO 228 aircraft. The helicopter is utilized as sensor platform and is equipped with an IR video sensor. It has been demonstrated that video reconnaissance images can be transmitted through a distance of 500 km using the relay platform.
