Unifly launches Unifly BLIP device

18th March 2019 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Unifly has launched a broadcast location and identity platform (BLIP), an e-Identification and tracking device for UAS.

The device works independently with its own power source and sensors for position, altitude, temperature, pressure, speed and direction. As soon as the pilot attaches it to a UAS, it is ready for use.

BLIP has been customised to meet the specific needs of UAS traffic management (UTM) service providers and local authorities. It has an endurance of up to four hours and offers wireless charging.

From the moment BLIP senses vertical movement, it automatically starts sending tracking data over the LTE wireless broadband network to the UTM network. Additionally, BLIP broadcasts the UAS e-identification, 3D location and take-off position over Bluetooth low energy.

This information can be accessed in real-time by relevant authorities through secured applications, allowing them to read out all details of UAS flying within a range of up to 200m.

In combination with the Unifly UTM platform, BLIP provides a complete solution for authorities to identify and track UAS traffic in their area of responsibility, independent of the systems used by the UAS operators.
