Abstract
The doctrine of battlefield Information Dominance has led to a proliferation of imaging platforms, especially in UASs, leading to a deluge of image/video gathering capability. Yet burgeoning sensor data acquisition is dramatically outpacing downlink capability, which voids the utility of sensor data. Methods to improve the performance of existing data links to transfer sensor data would greatly enhance operational performance. FastVDO advances its SmartLink technology which blends state of the art modem, network, and advanced video coding methods implemented with low-power off-the-shelf components to deliver robust total downlink. BENEFIT: 10X greater throughput, low delay transmission, timely sensor data communication
