E2E has successfully completed an over-the-air flight test of its newly launched UAS-I satellite communication node for UAS.

E2E is developing the solution in order to establish safe operational procedures for small UAS undertaking beyond visual line-of-sight missions. The company aims to make SATCOM available to these platforms as a resilient form of communication in order to extend the reach of UAS operations.

The trial, which took place in Salisbury, UK, saw live telemetry data downloaded while waypoint and flight commands were sent to the UAS over Inmarsat L-band.

Barry Ross, CEO of E2E, said: ‘We have created an ultra-light, less than 1kg communications node which will open the sub 20kg sUAS market for future beyond visual line-of-sight operations, now having the availability to utilise satellite communications.’
