The communication system, also referred to as “data link”, connects the aircraft with the ground controller as it passes the live video & data between the two through the air. Some communication systems are digital and some are analog. Some communication systems are simple and some are complexed and used in battle zones, such as in Afganistan.
Several communication systems from different companies can be used with the Black Eagle. These communication systems fit in the following range categories:
- up to 50km
