It ensures data transmission and reception at the speed up to 2Mbps regardless helicopter's location.’

High-altitude tests of Ansat have been successfully completed, confirming its performance at up to 3,500 meters. The helicopter can be operated in a temperature range between -45 and +50 degrees of Celsius.
