Frequentis and Sunhillo have jointly developed a UAS-connector (UAS-C) system to securely connect UAS pilots with air traffic control (ATC) units, Frequentis announced on 10 April.

The UAS-C converts UAS position data into standard aviation formats and provides a secure virtual radio communication link to exchange two-way voice and surveillance data, connecting UAS pilots seamlessly into existing ATC infrastructure.

UAS-C provides air traffic controllers and command centers with reliable and secure ground-based UAS pilot communication. The UAS pilot uses the same virtual frequency as manned aviation users, minimising the risk of safety infringements. As the communication equipment is located on the ground, UAS-C does not relay information through the UAS vehicle radio equipment, reducing the overall weight of the UAS and increasing payload capacity.
