CANDL enables long range line-of-sight, air-to-air, and air-to-ground networking and relay for beyond line-of-sight capability. The terminals’ operating frequency range covers feasible bands for both military and civil UAS applications. Networking and range performance can be extended with the optional external high power amplifier module.
