Dynautics has developed a wide range of communications systems and protocols to meet the various requirements of vehicle control and telemetry.
Short ranges (up to 400m): We have adapted 2.4GHz and 800MHz modems for short range command and control, notably for docking joysticks. The datalink is connected directly from the joystick to the SPECTRE autopilot, achieving low latency for precise control.
Intermediate ranges (up to 20nm line of sight): We have developed the SPECTRE Secure Serial Communications Protocol (SSSCP) which forms the backbone of many surface craft remote control applications. These systems are less expensive and more reliable than the higher frequencies typically used for Wifi. The SSSCP protocol is highly efficient, robust and supports a range of functions for diagnostics at all levels. These diagnostics and remote configuration tools are invaluable to our clients for fine tuning the configuration of their data systems.
Longer range: For long range communication systems solutions, we use the Iridium satellite network via the RUDICS system. This provides worldwide coverage and is suitable for command and control, data retrieval and bidirectional communications with assets on board or located on the sea floor.
