Satellite-based Flight Termination System

Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) flight termination



A satellite-based Flight Termination System is crucial for Uncrewed Aerial Systems operating in high-risk scenarios, such as off-shore inspections, search and rescue, drone delivery, aerial surveys and use in populated urban environments. The FTS system uses high reliability, low-latency satellite links and IP technologies to deliver termination commands from a secure platform to the UAS. The FTS, paired with impact reduction systems (parachute) can safely terminate and recover high value UAS in a flyaway situation.
