A customized version of Skynode powers each Astro. Skynode gives you LTE connectivity, an onboard linux mission computer, and seamless connectivity to Auterion Mission Control and Cloud Suite. The Auterion ecosystem provides a robust, secure, and scalable drone planning, flight, and compliance management solution which is ready for the enterprise.
Enterprise developers can leverage the Auterion Air, Ground, and Cloud SDK, built around the MAVSDK to process data captured by Astro and integrate it in their own workflows.
The mission computer on board Astro provides compute power for real-time data processing. The LTE module brings Astro online and delivers results directly to your cloud.
