Intended use

The Mobile Ground Station (MGS for short) is a mobile traffic receiving station and is used in combination with HOD4track Germany and a UTM license (UTM Trackviewer, UTMpro or UTMagent) to support UAS remote pilots flying beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).

As a sensor for air traffic data, it receives ADS-B and FLARM 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 with other data sources. In addition, the MGS 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 MGS completes the air situation display of the UAS pilot.

Due to the compact, modular design (tripod, antenna boom, receiver) and the IP67 certification, the MGS can be operated quickly at a wide variety of locations. The power supply, for example via a power bank, further contributes to autonomous use.

VISIBLE IN THE AIRSPACE!

Droniq makes drones visible and therefore makes ground-based airspace safer. Find out how it works here.

Droniq's core offering is a drone traffic management system (UTM). It shows the remote pilot a combined air situation picture of manned and unmanned air traffic for safe and efficient drone operations beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). For this purpose, Droniq provides you with the required hardware and software consisting of the following components:

  • LTE transponder for locating the aircraft
  • Web-based UTM system for displaying aircraft movements
  • Soil sensor system

Mobile Ground Station

Mobile system for ground-based air situational awareness. Easily and quickly installed for airspace surveillance. Self-sufficient use due to long battery life.

Learn more

UTM

The UTM TrackViewer is a web application for real-time display of aircraft movements in a defined area over Germany. All relevant aircraft movements are displayed in the lower airspace. Through multi-sensor data fusion, data sources such as primary/secondary radar, ADS-B, FLARM or HOD4track are captured.

HOD4track

LTE transponder for visualization of unmanned aerial objects. Easily and quickly mountable on almost any drone. Meets requirements for issuing BVLOS operating permits for UAS.

Product Features

  • 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 Mobile Ground Station sends its own position to the Droniq UTM and thus becomes visible. With an access to the UTM system, all traffic data available in the UTM is displayed fused to the remote pilots. This completes the UAS pilot's aerial view.

  • Compact and quickly ready for use

    The traffic station is quickly ready for use due to its compact design consisting of a tripod, antenna boom and receiver.

  • Autonomous use

    The power supply via a powerbank, for example, contributes to autonomous use.

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!
