QComm is pleased to announce our state-of-the art drone technology to perform important studies to our clients.
QForce specializes in installation work on the current channel repack, has teamed up with Australian-based SixArms, which uses unmanned aerial vehicle technologies to provide efficient, accurate and cost-effective measurement solutions. The Airborne Division utilizes proven signal verification and coverage mapping technology to capture the characterizations of antenna systems. This system allows measurements of Horizontal Radiation Patterns (HRP), Vertical Radiation Patterns (VRP), Effective Radiated Patterns (ERP), polarization discriminations and many other specific modulation parameters while providing overall uncertainties in the order of 1-2dB. QComm’s Airborne Division will be one of just two SixArm certified “operators” within the United States.
The use of a properly designed and technologically equipped UA system can greatly enhance the real understanding and effectiveness of our customers’ products while bringing added security, safety and awareness to the geographical locations where these products reside, thus reducing assumptions and needless human climbs.
