QCommunications (QComm), a leading engineering project management and installation vendor specializing in The Spectrum Act (REPACK project), has announced the launch of its Airborne Division. The Airborne Division, established to answer the growing demand for safe and accurate signal verification and to maximize product optimizations, will use state-of-the-art, custom made sUAS’s (drones) with proprietary RF software as an added benefit and verification tool to serve and support the broadcast industry.
Leveraging a partnership with SixArms, an innovative company based in Australia that produces efficient, accurate and cost-effective measurement solutions via cutting-edge unmanned aerial vehicle technologies, 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.
