Long Range Location System (LRLS)

  • The LRLS is a custom, compact, self-contained global GPS tracking system for UAVs
  • The LRLS utilizes the Iridium Satellite Network to send periodic location reports
  • Reports include precise GPS location, speed, and heading of the UAV
  • Operates for at least seven days from activation (longer with additional battery capacity)
  • Fail-safe operation - activates based on UAV communication loss with ground station
  • Utilizes diversity antennas and G-sensor to ensure location reports regardless of orientation
  • Location received via email – no special receiver equipment required
  • Fully proven through flight testing and deployment on MQM-107 subscale target drone
