Flexible, Robust and Secure data transmission

The ground control components (GCC) play a central role in the performance of the UAS and act as both a connection and a control hub for the sensor data generated by the RQ-35 Heidrun.

A key differentiator with Sky-Watch UAS solutions is our high degree of focus on connectivity,  meeting the high expectations to military grade performance.

Compact Ground Station

Compact Ground Station (CGS) is our small solid and compact Ground Station handling all telemetry and video feed communication for the Heidrun EO/IR UAV solution in a short range setup.


The standard antenna setup includes the ground station, radio platform and antenna integrated into a compact and light-weight 4 kg (incl tripod) setup for EO/IR missions.

Long Range Antenna

The Long Range Antenna is a valuable piece of equipment that allows you to extend your mission up to 30 kilometers with live video feed while still having full control of the UAV.

Ruggedized Control Station

A robust tablet that provides the drone operator team with the perfect tool to conduct ISR missions in environments and weather conditions within the UAV operating window.

Compact Ground Station

Creates the best possible connection between the drone operator and the UAV. Tested to IP68 standards, the Compact Ground Station is built to last and secure your vital data connection in the field. Furthermore, the CGS is the optimal connectivity and integration point between the UAS and any external C2 and C4 integration points.

Patch Antenna

Maintaining high level of mobility and at the same time ensuring high quality of data transmission for an operational range of 25 KM are key design criteria for the Patch Antenna setup.

The complete Patch Antenna setup will with its small footprint and low weight easily fit into the backpack together with the complete fixed wing UAS system.

Quick and easy setup combined with the automatic alignment and tracking of the UAV emphasizes the benefits to mobile deployments of UAV missions.

Long Range Patch Antenna

The Long Range Patch Antenna setup (LRPA) tracks the UAV securing the best possible connection between the Compact Ground Station and the UAV at all times. Despite its compact form factor, the Long Range Patch Antenna setup provides data connection up to 30 km (line of sight), which enables you to operate the UAV in a safe distance out of reach of direct fire.

Ruggedized Ground Control Station

Together with our technology partners we
constantly seek to improve the performance of the Ground Control Station and functionality of our Sky-Watch Drone Manager System (SDM) to enable a very soldier friendly user interface.
