Triad RF Systems, a leading designer
and manufacturer of integrated radio systems and high performance RF/Microwave amplifiers,
is positioned to assist in the deployment of Bluebird Aero Systems' SpyLite® Mini-UAS
(there's a cool animated video on BAS's homepage).
Designed and manufactured by Bluebird
Aero Systems, SpyLite® is a mature, advanced, combat- proven, extended performance
electric Mini-UAS, optimized to provide covert, "over-the-hill" or extended range
real-time visual intelligence.
SpyLite is unique in its ability to fly even in severe weather, assuring high
operational availability for 3-4 hours and a communication range of over 50 km
(can be extended up to 80 km). Fully autonomous, the system delivers autonomous
ease of use and high reliability, providing a very versatile and stable ISR platform.
In their long-range development stages, BlueBird's SpyLite team came up against
a critical communications challenge: how to arm it with an amplified radio that
was ultra-efficient, had good SNR and consistency over long distances, while remaining
compact and lightweight.
Specifically, Triad received a contract from Bluebird Aero Systems, Ltd. to equip
their UASs with Triad’s THPR series integrated radio systems. Triad's THPRs have
supported many of BlueBird's record-breaking UAS link distances by delivering the
ultra-small, lightweight, range-enhanced radio links they required. These systems
contain integrated SDRs that are amplified for higher output power, to support ISR
link distances over 50 km with high band-width. A mix of several L- and S-
band and C-band versions are now being delivered to support various missions. Learn
more about our experience in our heritage and pedigree presentation.
