Infrared imaging cameras
We offer a comprehensive range of industry-leading, high-performance LWIR, MWIR, and SWIR cameras for the most challenging UAV applications.
Visible imaging camera modules
Our unique range of visible camera modules are specifically designed to provide the compactness, low weight, vibration limitation, and high optical performance essential for UAVs.
Video analytics and interface boards
Our video processors provide a single-board solution that addresses multiple camera system functions, like video stabilisation or video tracking, that otherwise require multiple sub-assemblies.
Highly efficient power is critical to reducing the weight costs for power in a UAV. Our small, more efficient power supplies enable designers to increase the UAV payload.
Usable in any system requiring the transmission of electrical power signals to an intermittently or continuously rotating shaft. Their compact size allows installation into small systems requiring high performance such as UAVs.
Accelerometers and gyroscopes
UAV applications have demanding sensor requirements regarding performance, size, and cost. Our advanced tactical grade sensors accurately detect a change in direction, orientation, and speed, with excellent resistance to shock and vibration.
LiDAR, laser altimeters and anti-collision
Our specialist products provide the UAVs autopilot with precise, real-time, height-above-ground-level measurements. They are ideal for structural inspection, navigation, and advanced landing assistance applications.
Low SWaP laser rangefinder modules
These specialist modules can measure distances up to 3km, within 1m precision. Their low power consumption and detailed design enable reliable and long-term use under varying environmental conditions.
Specifically designed for remote device deployment, with best-in-class performing dual-mode modules providing low-cost and extremely low-power technology for low-bandwidth applications covering worldwide 2G/3G/4G networks.
GPS and GNSS modules
The industry’s smallest fully integrated and highly sensitive GPS/GNSS modules. Designed to support ultra-compact applications with features such as low-latency velocity, position outputs, and position updates.
Bluetooth and wireless modules
Industrial-grade Wi-Fi modules that are quick and easy to integrate with on-board software stacks and device servers to some of the most compact and advanced solutions in the world.
Designed to enable very low-power devices such as battery-powered sensor modules to easily communicate at regional, national, and even global levels. Our solutions provide secure, bi-directional, multicast communication between end devices and gateways.
A compact UAV design may need the use of onboard antennas. Our range of antennas can be chip, patch, PIFA, or embedded into the PCB itself.
Front End Modules (FEMs)
FEMs boost the performance of a chosen SoC and deliver strong wireless signals at a greater range, benefiting a UAV design. Our range supports almost every wireless standard with a dedicated FEM solution.
