23 February 2015

For airborne operations, payload weight and size are rather critical factors, perhaps more so with tactical unmanned aerial systems (TUAS). Pennsylvania, US-based Delta Digital Video (Stand UM-14) has just announced that its Model 6805R HD/SD video encoder has been selected for integration with the Shadow 200 drone payload.

George Nelson, the company’s vice president/ general manager, said, “Delta is proud to be a member of the Shadow 200 team.

We have worked closely with Textron Systems engineers to ensure that our new encoder meets the size, weight, power, cost and performance requirements for mission success.”

Delta’s Model 6805R H.264 HD/SD provides for the transmission of full-motion video for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) applications. Primarily designed for small aircraft, the 6805R is a rugged, compact unit with all the features of Delta’s JITC certified video encoder products.

Utilising H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC) encoding, the 6805R is flexible to allow for optimal video performance for any given bit rate. User-configurable parameters permit the user to adjust the video/audio/data features in accordance with mission requirements.

Delta’s technology has been integrated, tested and flown in numerous applications with various airborne platforms and is compatible with MISB and STANAG standards.
