In the hectic world of building, testing and measuring, solving hardware or software bugs, and selling, it can be hard to find the time to look into the entangled world of regulations, let alone industry standards. But when building a drone with several radio links, we need to know where on the map our client is – literally. From a global ITU region to local geographical restrictions, it is essential to know, understand and follow the relevant regulations. We cannot sell a radio-based product without it. And for professional drone end-users, that same knowledge and understanding of regulations is the first step in accomplishing surveying missions, avoiding accidents and contributing to a harmonised use of drones.
For data link technology planners and manufacturers, one major decision to be made is whether a communication standard is to be followed or not. Other important decisions have to be made about the available spectrum and power levels, and other regulatory impositions such as spectrum sharing, modulation, multiple access schemes, sub-channels, duty-cycles – the list goes on.
In preparing our reliable, flexible REVOsdr data link for the global professional drone market, we need to have it ready to work according to several international and national regulatory demands. And the radio world is our oyster!
