Traffic management for drones

Fixed Ground Station Sector Antenna

Stationary traffic receiving station for ground-based air situational awareness (FGS).

The Fixed Ground Station, also called sector antenna, is a very powerful stationary traffic receiving station for large area airspace surveillance. In combination with the HOD4track Germany and a UTM license (UTM Trackviewer, UTMpro or UTMagent), the FGS supports the drone pilot during BVLOS flights (beyond visual range).

Intended use

The Fixed Ground Station is a very powerful stationary traffic receiving station for large-scale airspace surveillance. In combination with the HOD4track Germany and a UTM license (UTM Trackviewer, UTMpro or UTMagent), the FGS supports the UAS remote pilot when flying beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).

As a sensor for air traffic data, it receives ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast) and FLARM (Flight Alarm) signals from surrounding air traffic participants (e.g. gliders, helicopters, powered aircraft). These signals are fed via LTE into the Droniq UTM (UAS Traffic Management) system, where they are analyzed together with other data sources. In addition, the FGS sends its own position to the Droniq UTM and is also visible there. With a Droniq UTM web access, the pilot can display all traffic data available in the UTM in a merged form: in this way, the FGS completes the air situation display of the UAS pilot.

The sector antenna is characterized by exceptionally high reception powers and thus ranges for both ADS-B and FLARM. Especially for the latter, tracking is only made possible by the extremely sensitive sensors of the FGS, since FLARM has a comparatively low transmission power.

The antenna has been specially optimized for 24/7 operation at highly exposed locations such as TV towers. Due to the directivity of the FGS, a fully equipped tower includes four individual antennas in e.g. north-south-east-west orientation.

Product Features

  • High reception power & ranges

    The sector antenna features exceptionally high reception performance and range for both ADS-B and FLARM.

  • ADS-B & FLARM Receiver

    Receives ADS-B (Automatic Dependant Surveillane - Broadcast) and FLARM (Flight Alarm) signals from surrounding air traffic such as gliders, helicopters, powered aircraft.

  • LTE connectivity

    ADS-B and FLARM signals are sent via LTE to Droniq's drone traffic management system (UTM), where they are fused with other data sources.

  • Droniq UTM Integration

    The Fixed Ground Station sends its own position to Droniq's drone traffic management (UTM) for visibility. With an access to the web-based UTM system, all traffic data available in the UTM is displayed fused to the remote pilots. This completes the drone pilot's aerial view.

  • Self-sufficient use in 24/7 operation

    Thanks to its compact design and IP67 certification, the traffic receiving station can be permanently installed in various locations and operated around the clock (24/7).

  • 360 degree coverage of the air position

    To achieve full 360 degree coverage at exposed locations (e.g. television towers), four antennas are required, mounted in a north-south-east-west orientation.

DRONIQlive: How drones help to rescue fawns

Rescuing fawns with the help of drones is a hot topic. Every spring, farmers start mowing their fields and unfortunately fawns are often caught by the mowing machines without being detected.

Drones can be a great help in saving the animals! Equipped with thermal imaging cameras, drone pilots can spot the animals from the air before it is too late. This allows farmers, hunters or other helpers to rescue the fawns in good time.

In our next edition of DRONIQlive on Thu, 23.05.2024 at 7 pm, we will take a closer look at this topic. We look forward to your participation!
