Lightweight, High Bandwidth, Ruggedized Data Link

Aeronix's 802.16 EDL Micro is a small conduction cooled, lightweight, scalable data link with  analog video input for real time applications.  Its software reprogrammable architecture makes it an ideal choice for customer unique solutions as well as standard data link applications.

Key Features

  • User Data Rates up to 38 Mbps (IP traffic)
  • Adaptive Modulation
  • Adjustable RF Output, max 1 Watt average
  • Highly configurable via Web based GUI
  • TRANSEC using AES-256
  • Internal H.264 Video Encoding, adjustable to desired data rate
  • Four QoS types:  Guaranteed, Best Effort, Real Time, Non-Real Time
  • Software configurable as base-station or subscriber (up to 20 subscribers)
  • Low Overhead Optimized Point-to-Point Mode

The EDL Micro is available with or without a Power Supply module that enables the use with discrete voltages for space savings or with standard bus voltages.


The Aeronix EDL Micro data link is a conduction cooled very small, lightweight, modular, and scalable data link.  The data link provides for serial control, high quality video transmission, data security, and adaptive data rates with flexible bandwidths.  The size, weight, and power consumption is perfect for small and mini unmanned vehicles.  The EDL Micro can be configured for point to point or multipoint networked Unmanned Vehicle operations.  The EDL Micro's software programmable architecture provides flexibility in waveform choice and provides a robust upgrade path to future waveforms without changing hardware.

The Aeronix EDL Micro (base unit, to the left above)  and EDL Micro PS (with power supply module, to the right above).  The base EDL Micro requires 3.3V and 5V while the PS option includes a power supply module to allow operations with a 6-16 Volt supply.
