UKRSPEC Systems antenna tracker

Our antenna tracker maximizes the radio communication range between your drone and the ground control station and therefore allows to use of the maximum potential of the data link. It uses the drone position information to accurately orient the antenna in the UAV direction. It’s necessary to have precision tracking systems when seeking to operate over long distances, which makes antennas a fundamental component.

What makes a great antenna tracker for your drone?

It significantly increases the quality and range of stable communication and provides a reliable HD video transmission. So, if you’re looking to buy a tracking antenna, we’d like to draw your attention to this exclusive tracking unit that matches the parameters mentioned above and much more!

To ensure maximum reliability during the mission we integrated two communication channels into our UAV tracking antenna system. The main datalink is used for the telemetry and video transmission and the backup datalink transmits telemetry using another frequency.

The antenna tracker is equipped with a built-in video camera, which allows you to have visual control over your drone close to mid-range distance. Besides these advantages, the tracking antenna system can also be equipped with a directional high-gain antenna.
