SkyLink® DP

Deployable, Airborne Omnidirectional Antenna

This popular system extends a mast below the aircraft skids allowing an omni-directional antenna to operate without interfering or being blocked by various payloads: external cameras, gimbals, floats, steps, skids and other aircraft mounted equipment.

The SkyLink® DP utilizes a pilot panel onboard the aircraft to deploy and retract the antenna safely. Additionally, an easily broken, frangible link design protects the aircraft if it accidently lands while the antenna is deployed.

Optional Dual-Polarized Omnidirectional Antennas
Designed to operate in two frequencies simultaneously and supports bidirectional Multiple Input, Multiple Output MIMO.

Troll’s dual-polarized antennas, contain both horizontal and vertical polarizations in a single, lightweight aircraft rated package. Currently available in S and C bands, Troll’s dual-polarized antennas maximize MIMO radio performance. By providing orthogonal RF paths the dual-stream capability of the radio can be realized. Dual-stream systems can provide higher bitrate or redundancy to optimize range or throughput.

Troll dual-polarized omnidirectional antennas support 1×2, 2×2 and 4×4 channel MIMO systems. They work with 802.11, WiMAX, Wi-Fi and are suitable for ground or airborne installations.
