Smart Antenna Tracker for professional Radio Control, Telemetry and Video

Description #

The SATPRO antenna tracking system helps to have the best possible radio link at all times, sending and receiving Radio Control, Telemetry and video data.

The operation of SATPRO consists of automatically pointing the high-gain terrestrial directional antennas to the drone or UAV automatically to obtain the best amount of signal and achieve the greatest possible range of the system.

The SATPRO calculates the angle where the remote vehicle is located by combining the data of the GPS position of SATPRO, the GPS position of the UAV or Drone, the amount of radio signal received in the antennas or Rssi, the speed and the distance of the vehicle.

To receive the GPS position of the UAV, SATPRO uses the Mavlink protocol through the XLRS receiver and transmitter.

SATPRO is independent of the Radio control system, Telemetry and the video system, which can be digital or analog.

In SATPRO, different XLRS devices can be used or other brands that are compatible.

SATPRO is portable, with several rugged cases and a robust SJJ32 tripod with transport bag. The tripod can be anchored to the ground using steel cable or slings along with stakes.


Battery #

SATPRO is designed to work with the built-in LiOn battery which is interchangeable and of an approximate duration of 8 to 10 hours (only SATPRO consumption).

In case of need or exhausted battery you can connect a battery or external power supply from 14.8 to 24V.

SATPRO is very energy efficient, it consumes little, about 8W with active motors (up to 12 times less than others) what allows to have a small battery of long duration and light weight.

Is thermally insulated, has ventilation and heating to stabilize the interior temperature.



XLRS connectivity #

Long Range RC receiver and Full HD video TX. RF Connections     

SATPRO can connect by cable or wireless.

By cable it has RCBUS and Ethernet.

By wireless it has Wifi and depending on the video system, a 60Ghz transmitter without delay for Full HD digital video and a 5.8Ghz repeater in real time for analog video.

Depending on the needs and models, these systems can be combined.


Compatibility #

To get the best performance SATPRO can be connected with XPAD1, XPAD2V3 and XPAD3V2 remote controller and with Ground Control Stations (GCSD4V2ST, GCSD4V3ST, GCSD5ST and GCS Duals).

SATPRO can be connected and directly control its position with commands via Ethernet or WIFI without using XLRS radio control systems.

You can also send position data via Ethernet or Wifi using the Mavlink protocol.

This is useful when the end customer can’t use XLRS radio modems and must use other radio modems according specifications.


The XLRS system is compatible with any autopilot that works with the Mavlink protocol: Pixhawk, Pixhawk Cube, APM, Mini Pix, etc.

It is also compatible with any route software with mavlink protocol such as: Mission Planner, QGround Control, etc.

The RLXRS, RXLRSV2 or XVTR receivers connects directly to the autopilot through the MODEM port.




Transport Suitcases #

The SATPRO together with the different XLRS systems, the antennas and accessories are placed in their respective robust cases to be able to easily and safely transport each part of the SATPRO.

The tripod is placed in a carry bag that has internal foam to prevent damage during travel.
