Miniature Aerial vehicles:
Communications & Data-link

< The airborne communications equipment performing video down link and command uplink, is also "hungry" for scarce power resources. The use of miniature, low power high frequency communications, specially designed for such applications, provide an important element in a successful MAV design. As higher the frequencies are, the antennae can be shorter and smaller. Since most MAVs are built of composite materials, antennas can be integrated into the vehicle's structure to gain maximum coverage and minimize electromagnetic interference between on board radio systems.
