One objective is single-channel, digital communciation between ground control and the airborne platform via a dedicated RF channel. The ground-to-air link is a dedicated RF channel which would also contain digitized control information; the air-to-ground link is embedded in the NTSC video signal.
Results and further work
The downlink portion of this project is near completion, but the uplink, and data interaction on the ground is still needing to be worked on. The downlink project continuations, can be read in more detail in the downlink description..
