"We use at least half a dozen different types of stock SDRs for the SA, and we also modify some of them for specific bands. Additional filters, LNAs and antennas help a lot in sensitivity and selectivity. It's hardly ever the same setup, because our…"
One of the most difficult risks to manage with all sUAS flight operations, and in fact with most remote-controlled vehicle systems is radio interference. Detecting the threat and evading it is almost impossible without proper RF instrumentation,…
"Looks fairly clear from this screenshot, but a lot depends on the general menu structure, arrangement of on-screen controls, keyboard shortcuts, etc. I've found that writing complete use case scenarios of various flight operations and learning the…"
"You should look into Saiy or any other similar voice command application, because the above is already possible with Android tablet level hw. Because Saiy is now open source it may as well be easier to customise the code to this very purpose. As…"
"I don't think it's a dumb question, because voice command can be a viable alternative in certain UAV applications. Since it needs at least some embedded IT hw it may as well be an option in the 10" telemetry version, which is based on a fairly…"
"As many people have pointed out both rotary pots and sliders as important features, we have been looking into this in detail. It is possible to install two sliders on the top edge of the frame at the corners to be operated by your index finger.
"I have no worries about the ergonomy of the original design since we've been manufacturing it in small series for some time now. See here: RHH
The "square" shape is a given with a monitor if we don't want to enlarge the footprint with unnecessary…"
Some of you may have already seen our rugged professional mission control units also presented here on DIYdrones. Most of those are produced to at least industrial IP specifications, but developers and DIYers are constantly bombarding us with…
"We're currently working on two LT versions of this RHH line with some kit and DIY opportunities for a change, and I'm going to post about it in a couple of weeks. We will need all your valuable input for the project, so check back then, or you can…"
"You're welcome Mike, but I think we were also a bit behind the first line at the coal face. Everything important I've ever learnt in RF is from old hams, for example, and they are a dying breed, unfortunately. We also have to thank several…"
It’s probably time to provide some background to my blog posts on various ground control stations we’ve been designing and manufacturing, because our experiences over the years may give some food for thought for fellow UAV/USV developers.Already in…
We have a new Android based fully rugged ground control station format for some serious UAV/USV work. We’ve been calling it simply the RHH, and it was developed with extensive modularity in mind from scratch. As the supporting and enthusiastic…
