Broadband Antenna Tracking Systems (BATS) Creates Affordable High-Speed Wireless Communications for Blimp-to-Ground High-Definition Video Transmission

INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Broadband Antenna Tracking Systems has created an affordable and rapidly deployable system for high-speed transmission of video and other data from blimps to a ground station.

The blimp is a commonly recognized entity at a range of sporting events, from baseball to football games. Sports broadcasters and marketing agencies often use blimps to capture action footage of sporting events and stream live video feeds to communication stations located on the ground. Until recently, most transmission methods were too costly and ineffective, often suffering with video feed delays and slow data transfer rates. Broadband Antenna Tracking Systems (BATS) has developed an economical solution that provides a significant improvement in data transmission capabilities for blimp-to-ground wireless communications.

A sports marketing agency recently challenged BATS to create an affordable solution for blimp-to-ground transfer of live video and high-definition photographs. During the trials, which took place in Bridgeport, Connecticut, the BATS Service and Support team integrated two BTS-2500 systems with Motorola PTP 600 series radios. One BTS system was located in the cockpit of the blimp and the second was located at a ground station. The BTS-2500 system used in the test is a rapidly deployable, self-aligning and tracking antenna. Each system includes a modular-computer-controlled Positioning Unit (PU) and a BATS Rack Mount Control Unit (RMCU). The BTS-2500 requires minimal technological skill from users in order to optimize wireless broadband applications.

After establishing and maintaining a data link between the blimp and the ground station, the system successfully achieved high-speed data transmission. The aggregate link capacity of the transmissions exceeded 252 megabits/second. Thus BATS rose to the challenge and its proof-of-concept tests demonstrated an affordable solution for streaming video and large data files from an air-based blimp to the ground. The system can now be deployed in blimps at sporting events across the country to provide an affordable solution that meets broadcasting companies need for high-speed and large capacity data transmission.

BATS is a wireless telecommunications technology company that specializes in enabling uninterrupted wireless networking between stationary and moving vehicles and vessels, such as blimps and ships.
