Air-To-Ground Data Links Made Simple

Why Avwatch Makes Tracking Antennas
The Avwatch family of Mobile Tracking Antenna Systems was born out of frustration with traditional tracking systems used in UAV and manned aircraft operations. We designed our systems to be simple to use, quick to set up and to reduce opportunity for user error.
All of our MTS are radio agnostic and have the option to work in different frequency bands. With automatic heading calculations and gimbal stabilization, an MTS can also be used in static or mobile scenarios.
Our goal is to simplify the complexities around air-to-ground data links allowing an operator to focus on more mission critical tasks.
The MTS2.0 punches well above its weight class. Designed with an operator in mind, it fits into one box that's small enough to be checked as luggage on a commercial airline. Don't let the size fool you, we've carried a live video stream out to the software defined link limit on MANET radios with this little guy multiple times. For deployments where time, space and resources are limited, the MTS2.0 is the perfect tracking system to pair with a UAV ground station.
The MTS Radome is designed for the harshest maritime environments. While the internal hardware and options are similar to the MTS2.0, the radome configuration protects against many of the unforgiving factors that are present when permanently mounted to a ship. This form factor can also be installed in a response vehicle for extending a UAV data link from RV style ground stations.
Each unit comes pre-configured with a MANET radio and antenna specific to frequency band.
The MTS3.0 is the closest thing to a traditional tracking system that Avwatch makes. It is completely customizable to an end user's specific requirements. Items like mounting options, gimbal stabilization and automatic heading updates are all available.
Because of its larger size, it is able to hold larger, or multiple parabolic antennas which makes it an attractive tool for MIMO MANET users who want to take advantage of more than two RF chains.
