FlyMotion’s TRIDENT mobile command and control vehicle for camera-equipped UAS integrates a LiveU LU500 cellular bonded unit, which provides live HD video transmission for on-the-move coverage.
The FlyMotion solution also uses an LU700 hybrid video uplink solution and a LiveU Xtender external antenna, which increases network reception and bandwidth and adds resiliency for transmissions in extreme situations. In addition, latency is reduced to less than one second, says LiveU.
End users of the solution include TV broadcasters, law enforcement, search-and-rescue operators, security organizations and industrial inspectors. With TRIDENT, says LiveU, organizations can now fully pilot a UAS with optical or infrared/thermal cameras from inside the mobile command and control vehicle.
Maurice Cooley, FlyMotion’s vice president of technology, says, “TRIDENT provides users with on-scene, rapid deployment functionality that allows for high-definition, aerial scene analysis/monitoring in a matter of minutes.”
“Working with FlyMotion has opened up new applications of our technology,” adds Avi Cohen, LiveU’s co-founder and chief operating officer. “Today, our video capabilities are being applied to situations that require transmitting live visual intelligence vital to mission-critical decision making – from providing more visual coverage for law enforcement to helping utilities better see and understand what is happening with their assets without having to send people to inspect them.”
