uAvionix Gains FAA Contract for BVLOS Study

Melding Multiple Comms Channels Could Prove Key to Hassle-Free Drone Ops on the Frontier uAvionix, has been awarded a Broad Agency Announcement contract from the FAA to “advance the commercial use of Uncrewed Aircraft Systems in the National Airspace System.” The contract looks to create a reliable command & control network for BVLOS ops across terrain with greater vertical development and variation than existing networks allow. To that end, uAvionix has joined hands with the University of Alaska Fairbanks UAS Test Site. They’ll use that sandbox and begin mashing up their toys and tools, starting with their proprietary Link Executive Manager to fuse LTE, Iridium SATCOM, and C-Band communications links into a single, uninterrupted, reliable link to aircraft in flight.
