"Er that will be well outside of UK regs from Nov both in weight and distance requirements. Or does the university have a way around that?? See here
I'm trying to get my auth to operate sorted with the CAA right now. I dont think they have…"
"Thanks for all the advice, as it would be difficult to transmit for the required distance(2km), I had to go back to the customer and change the requirements slightly.
-20kg with 2kg payload, of which we need a HD camera, IR camera, and other…"
"Ian, that's me, correct. I never posted on this forum before - just watching our access-log, this is how I found out about diydrones.
Processor? It will be TI DaVinci. Splitting signal - it probably is possible with some coding, currently GPS…"
"Wow, I'm guessing you're the same Andrey that started the elphel project - I didn't realize you were on the diydrones forums. I've enjoyed reading about your system - and have thought the elphel system would be ideal for video on…"
"There is a version of the camera with with the extension board (http://wiki.elphel.com/index.php?title=10369) that allows to connect external SATA HDD (or SDD that is more appropriate to UAV) . With compass/GPS attached…"
"The elphel camera is open source, cheaper than the Axis stuff, has several compression schemes, can stream via WiFi to an open web client they provide, and is capable of capturing 30fps at 1920x1088. Up to 8 SD cards can be used for offline storage…"
"There are also stand alone encoders available from AXIS (M7001) which start at around $350 (without camera).
This encoder is can deliver two simultaneous video streams; one in M.264 and the other in Motion JPEG, at full frame rate and in all…"
"I've not been able to locate an HD transmitter that would be sufficient for our uses yet. Professional sportscasts use wireless HD but these run in the $6,000 range and that's just the 150' transmitter! Its also
Belkin has is $500…"
"i dont think any modem will be able to suite your needs. you would need to compress the video onboard.....etc. use a HD digital camcorder with a video out, and send a lower quality video to the ground by wireless video. you will have the HD video…"
I am currently studying Aerospace Engineering at the University of Manchester, England,UK. One of my final year projects is to implement and integrate the communication systems onboard a rotary wing UAV (tumbleweed if you want to google it) (2kg payload on a 18kg structure). My main requirement is to send HD video with a minimum bit rate of 20Mbit/s as well as other information for flying the vehicle and information from other sensors e.g. IR imagery. Would this mean that the connection would…See More
