The American company Collins Aerospace has demonstrated a new communication system for drones, which will allow them to securely transmit data on the battlefield when working in a complex environment – the enemy will find it difficult to suppress or listen to such a communication system, reports Flight Global.
This system was developed and demonstrated within the project of the US Department of Defense’s Advanced Research Projects Agency Pheme. According to the developer, this technology can help create a single network of command and control of combat, which is currently being actively promoted by the US Department of Defense.
“To increase secrecy and resilience, Collins has developed a communication system using 5G technology that emits energy only in the direction of the receivers. This system contains new methods of directional detection and tracking, which allows you to work in conditions where there is no GPS,” the statement said. companies.
A recent demonstration of the system also included the transmission of high-bandwidth video and “minimal detection” data. The system itself was located under the wing of a small jet and transmitted data to a terrestrial receiver.
Collins claims that their communication system is quite small and can be installed in a capsule with a diameter of 12.7 cm.
The U.S. Air Force is currently working on a fleet of UAVs that will perform a variety of tasks, from reconnaissance to air-to-air combat and ground strikes.
