Testing ANGELS on Como Lake
On Wednesday June 19 ANGELS System performed some field trials at Lido di Faggeto, a beautiful beach on Como Lake. The test aimed to check ADS-B communication and downlink to the ground station by reproducing helicopter movements with a boat.
With the support of the staff of Lido di Faggeto – Miamilaryo beach we set up a work station just by the lake, where we placed our antennas and installed the ground station; we then defined the test paths and set up the relative file. The whole procedure took about 3 hours.
In early afternoon, Mr Angelo Menara kindly provided us with his boat, and he’s been driving us around the mapped spots on the lake while checking the ADS-B signal via ANGELS App.
The test suggested interesting issues to be explored towards our first official helicopter mission in Riffgat offshore wind farm, that will involve Windpark Heliflight support.
We would like to warmly thank the whole staff of the beautiful Lido di Faggeto – Miamilaryo beach for the hospitality and the support; a special thanks goes to Mr Angelo Menara, for his time and his patience.
