The UAS‑C can track UAV’s of all sizes without the use of Radar or ADS‑B. The UAS‑C connects to the UAS ground control system (GCS) and converts the positional data from the UAS into a radar or an ADS‑B message using our proprietary software. This message can then be sent to ATC or a local command center and displayed with other radar and ADS‑B targets for situational awareness. Our solution addresses the three primary challenges for UAS integration; UAS Tracking, Situational Awareness, and Voice Communications.
The UAS Situational Awareness (USA) Tactical Kit is designed to increase the safety of UAS operations by providing enhanced situational awareness of manned and unmanned aircraft. The kit utilises the UAS-C system provide tracking of cooperative UAS aircraft alongside manned aircraft equipped with ADS-B. The ADS-B targets are tracked via the Sunhillo Margate II ADS-B Receiver. All aircraft are displayed on a feature rich Surveillance Monitoring System (SMS) which allows geofencing, ownship, moving map, recording, and graphical overlays.
A hardened secure waterproof carry-on sized luggage case is utilised to house the UAS-C, UAS-C Gateway, Margate II ADS-B Receiver, and SMS Laptop. A lightweight antenna is used to bring in the ADS-B feed.
Longport ADS-B Receiver Module
Add ADS-B In to your Longport
Sunhillo’s Longport platform is a highly deployed, robust, versatile, and modular system designed for Surveillance Sensor Data Distribution and message conversions and with the addition of the ADS-B Receiver module it accepts and decodes 978MHz UAT and 1090MHz ADS-B and TIS-B.
The ADS-B Receiver Module is a field deployed and proven ADS-B receiver developed to meet or exceed DO-260B and DO-282 standards with high reliability, range, and accuracy.
Sunhillo’s ADS-B Receiver Module accepts the transmission directly into the module from a TNC connector for the RF antenna feed. Additionally, the module has an SMA connector for the GPS input. The module also features a fully integrated GPS receiver. Outputs include a variety of destinations and formats including ASTERIX CAT021 and FAA CAT033 over ethernet.
The ADS-B Receiver Module is ideally suited for customers that need Radar and ADS-B in one platform. If you currently have a Longport with available slots the ADS-B receiver is a simple drop in. The ADS-B Receiver module utilizes the same easily configurable SureLine® Software GUI that powers Sunhillo’s surveillance data products.
UAS ATC Integration/ BVLOS Surveillance Solution
The UAS-CSystem securely integrates with existing ATC Surveillance Systems to support ALL UAV operations flying Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) including flying in or through Controlled airspace regardless of size or altitude. The UAS-C has addressed the major surveillance challenges flying BVLOS and/or in controlled airspace creating a ubiquitous surveillance picture for critical operations in controlled airspace.
Who is the UAS-C Solution for:
PIC looking to track UAV’s without any on-board equipment
Operators or Fleets who want to track UAV’s via a command center
Full surveillance integration of UAV’s and aircraft in a local ATC Tower or command center
Any PIC looking to fly in controlled airspace or BVLOS
Bridging existing UTM’s with ATC
PIC who needs a See and Avoid display of all local aircraft for situational awareness
Margate II ADS-B
Field Proven ADS-B Receiver
Sunhillo’s Margate II ADS-B Receiver is a field deployed and proven ADS-B receiver developed to meet or exceed DO-260B and DO-282standards with high reliability, range, and accuracy.
The Margate II ADS-B Receiver accepts and decodes 978 MHz UAT and 1090ES ADS-B and TIS-B. Sunhillo’s ADS-B Receiver accepts the transmission directly into the module from a front panel TNC connector for the RF antenna feed allowing for a simple and portable setup.
Additionally, the unit features a fully integrated GPS receiver with a front panel SMA Connector for the GPS input. Outputs include a variety of destinations and formats including ASTERIX CAT021 and FAA CAT033 over ethernet.
The Margate II is trusted by the US Military for current operations and can be paired with our Surveillance Monitoring System (SMS), also US Military deployed, to view live ADS-B targets for Situational Awareness.
