UAV

FLARM products offer a broad range of services for UAVs out of the box:

  • Electronic conspicuity (EC) and tracking
  • Electronic identification (eID) with optional cryptographically secure signature
  • Traffic awareness
  • Detect-and-avoid (DAA)

For fast time-to-market, we offer development kits. For standard UAV equipment, check the UAV operator page.

Two development kits for UAVs are available: PowerFLARM UAV Dev Kit and FLARM Atom Dev Kit. They each have specific features and target different use cases. The properties of the dev kits are listed in the table below.
