AIRLink uses widely adopted drone industry standards, and if you’d like to modify the software, this is doable. The hardware is not open source but for our large volume manufacturers we can provide you with a reference design and help you set up your own production. This will allow you to control your own volume and quantity
Yes! We can give you full access to the mission computer and autopilot so you can deploy your own applications through AIRLink. This is something we can work with you on, so use our contact form to get in touch
Yes! AIRLink quite literally stands for Artificial Intelligence and Remote Link. This means that you can have the computing power to run complex algorithms onboard
AIRLink has both integrated WiFi and LTE connectivity. WiFi can be used as the access point to connect AIRLink to your router, and LTE connectivity means that AIRLink comes to you with the internet already enabled. You need only set up or log into your Sky-Drones Cloud account and enable the data plan. Alternatively, use your own carrier and data plan to manage this yourself if you’d prefer. Finally, AIRLink has an ethernet port for IP datalinks integration. Stay tuned to find out more!
