Skynode, Mission Control, & Cloud Suite

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.

CENTIMETER LEVEL ACCURACY

Freefly RTK

Astro is equipped with our multi-band RTK system with centimeter level precision. Using the latest GNSS module from u-blox (F9P) our RTK will give you rock solid height and position hold.

SUPER LIGHT BATTERIES

Long flight times + intelligent monitoring

Astro batteries come in two sizes and feature the latest 2170 round cell lithium ion batteries. These cells combine high energy density with incredible cycle life. Freefly gaurantees at least 500 cycles on our SL series batteries.

The SL series batteries feature an OLED screen that reports key data to the user and communicate with Astro via our open CAN battery protocol so you can track battery health and usage fleetwide.

“Never before has the drone industry had access to a system that was designed as a true everyday workhorse: compact yet flexible, using open standards but built for purpose.”
