Airbus integrates Mobilicom's SkyHopper PRO technology into its Innovation drone platform



Airbus has integrated Mobilicom’s SkyHopper PRO technology into its Innovation drone platform, which is used to expand Airbus’ vision, and showcase the company’s mission operation technologies in the commercial and homeland security UAS space.

According to Mobilicom, SkyHopper is a “holistic solution” for commercial and industrial UAS and robotics. The SkyHopper PRO is a “communication solution” for control, telemetry and video or payload sharing to and from the UAS platform to the ground control systems and users.

Airbus is using the SkyHopper PRO Datalink with its mission specific software and accessories.

SkyHopper PRO offers a “bi-directional Data Link” specifically designed for commercial and industrial UAS. It is ideal for fleet management and autonomous UAS.

SkyHopper PRO utilizes leading wireless technologies, allowing it to deliver long range and Non-Line of Sight (N-LOS) communication that supports multiple transmission modes.

Additionally, SkyHopper PRO supports “Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint communication,” which allows several modes of operation such as communication for multi-UAS operations and UAS communication to multiple ground units and viewers (receivers).

“We are honored that Airbus, one of the world’s leading aeronautical corporations, has chosen Mobilicom's SkyHopper solution, and see this as a testimony to the quality of Mobilicom’s high-end technology and capabilities,” says Mobilicom’s CEO, Oren Elkayam.

“Due to its high performance to price ratio, the SkyHopper PRO is a great fit for Airbus.”
