Delivering Critical Sensor Data for ISR
Empowering ISR missions with Ultra HD video streaming and GB-size file transfers by delivering game changing, robust connectivity.
Mission-Critical Connectivity for Near-Real Time Data Delivery
Timely sensor data from an ISR platform is becoming more crucial to augment on-the-ground human reporting. In turn, mission success is increasingly dependent on the ability to gather more data and Ultra HD video with an immediate broadband connection to a data processing centre. Timely and persistent ISR information improves decision-making and allows for critical decisions to be made at a more rapid pace.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are essential for ISR missions and border control. As the capabilities of their onboard sensors and cameras grow, so does the size of data they collect. O3b mPOWER is uniquely positioned with high throughput, low-latency connectivity that can dynamically favour the uplink for near real-time offboarding of data. This enables the rapid return of intelligence for agile decision in the field, all while expanding the range of the UAVs mission with beyond-line-of-sight connectivity.
Enhance ISR missions with O3b mPOWER
Throughput of over 100Mbps will enable highly efficient multi-sensor manned and UAV missions, where large volumes of data can be offloaded to the cloud and multicast to various sites.
Gain dynamic forward and return links
The O3b mPOWER system will provide ample connectivity for the forward command link to ensure the UAV receives instructions. When the UAV is ready to transmit, the bandwidth will dynamically shift to drastically favour uplink to maximise the return of robust multi-sensor data and Ultra HD video.
Benefit from scalable solutions
We can tailor and scale a solution to grow with the evolving needs of your mission, including access to vital cloud applications by leveraging our global fleet, and the ability to transmit across the full range of frequency bands—including X-band and Military Ka-band on the GovSat-1 satellite.
