There are many small worlds within the enormous world of drones, and there are many ways to fly, use and control them. Until now, the consumer drone market has used Wi-Fi because it is popular and readily available. Consumer drone manufacturers are now looking to use cellular mobile networks for the same reasons – the scale and availability of the markets and networks make this inevitable. But both Wi-Fi and cellular mobile networks are unreliable and drone flying is a serious business, with a real risk of accidents. If we look at more technical drone markets such as professional or racing drones, we see that radio signals between drone and pilot occupy other bands, for good reasons. It’s important for end-users, and those who benefit from drone inspection and surveying, to understand what parts of the radio spectrum can be used in drones and why. One determining factor is regulation, another is reliability. If we are to reach the global professional drone market with our REVOsdr data link, with its reliability and flexibility, we need to have it ready for several spectrum uses.
Industry Knowledge White Paper, 2017
This is a “Blue Dot White Paper”, about our general, non-technical, view of the industry with the purpose of informing drone end-users, beneficiaries of professional drone inspections and surveying, and the general public.
