I think we can use sat modem to control uav and view the telemetry data digi international was made tiny sat modem 48gm wight for data TRX and cost around 140 USD http://www.digi.com/pdf/ds_digim10.pdf
Quite nice, but I think it would be great if someone could make the DroneCell work with APM, that would be the first step towards amateur looooong range UAV-link :)
thanx for all
SATCOM is unusable for most of us, but not because of latency. It is possible with some satellite companies to obtain the less than .5 milliseconds latency required for real time control, point to point, but it is a dedicated pipe, and very expensive (similar to MPLS). We did studies with a company called Segovia, who is one of the big dogs with access to 50% of over a dozen satellites about doing Combined VoIP and Data over Private networks between the US and Dubai and various other regions in the ME. It was doable for sure, but the price tag was amazing... If I had to guess today... you could most likely start out at around 10,000.00 USD/month, which may be possible with a very large organization, but then you would be limited to the number of members that could be connected at any one time.
