SL200 establishes Live Video Link over 65 km on a UAV mission over sea
SL200's recent deployment on board a Boreal drone, commissioned by weather forecaster Meteo France to predict the intensity and paths of cyclones (read the Meteo France article), showed its data link reliability on very long transmission range in real missions.
Using the Simpulse's GRS-T200 tracking antenna on the ground, SL200 transmitted the drone's Control & Command, Telemetry and Live Video up to 65 km requiring only 0.4 W transmit power.
Production of SL200 and GRS-T200 started in November 2018. The complete long-range data link solution is now commercially available.

An updated version of the SL200 Mobile Data Link Modem datasheet is now available for Download.
Simpulse SL200 mobile data link modem is dedicated to mobile bi-directional transmission of data and video in challenging environments. The modem provides high-performance, robust and secure data links with bitrate from 10 kbits/sec to 5 Mbits/sec for long range distance in LOS and Non-LOS conditions.
SL200 is built around robust Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology that offers optimized sensitivity and robust synchronization in mobile conditions. The modem further integrates sophisticated measurement to optimize the link in real conditions. SL200 thus provides excellent quality of service for Non-Line of Sight (NLOS) transmissions and ensures high and stable throughput of live HD video and data, as well as telemetry and control command, in one single device.

GRS-T200 Long-range Ground Antenna for SL200
GRS-T200 is a tracking antenna which expands the range of action of SL200 embedded modem. This is the ideal solution to provide long range and robust video and data links. In UAV applications, GRS-T200 is located at the Ground side of the link and connects the Control Station to the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. GRS-T200 integrates the SL200 modem and benefits from its highly robust Software Defined Radio (SDR) algorithms and its extreme flexibility. It is equiped with 2 omnidirectional antennas and 2 directive antennas automatically pointed to increase the link budget.
