Elisra in Benei Berak, Israel is presenting its C-band Starlink and ADLS-2 data link technology for use with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The C-band Starlink unmanned vehicle digital data link is for tactical UAVs, and delivers secure UAV payload video images in real time to field commanders, infantry soldiers, and special operations forces, providing them with reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities. Immune to electronic warfare jamming and interference, the C-band Starlink employs a time division duplexing (TDD) method that produces spectral efficiency (4 MHz per channel), operating in single frequency or frequency hopping modes with uplink and downlink traffic sharing the same frequency for efficient bandwidth use. Based on COTS technology, this latest-generation data link system operates at ranges as far as 60 miles. The new Advanced Data Link System (ADLS-2) is the company’s latest wireless communications system for medium-altitude, long-endurance (MALE) UAVs, and transmits video and audio data, from five different UAV payloads and 24 IP outputs, simultaneously.
