SmartAP AIRLink hardware architecture overview
- The flight control computer (autopilot) has a triple-redundant vibration-dampened and temperature-stabilized IMU.
- The powerful AI mission computer enables advanced drone software features like computer vision and obstacle avoidance, digital HD video streaming, and payload data streaming.
- LTE / 5G and WiFi connectivity modules provide permanent broadband internet connection which is enabler for remote workflows.

SmartAP AIRLink Datasheet
We appreciate the different integration levels required by the drone manufacturers. Therefore we offer two slightly different editions of AIRLink - the most advanced drone avionics: Enterprise and Core. AIRLink Enterprise is ideal for a quick start, evaluation and prototyping while Core is optimised for deep integration and mid-high volume manufacturing.
Aluminum, with integrated heatsink and fan mounting option.
External heatsink or reasonable power dissipation should be provided by the design.
L103 x W61 x H37 mm
L100 x W57 x H22 mm
Low to Medium
Medium to High
SmartAP AIRLink's Enterprise edition is intended for prototyping and low to medium volume drone production. Quick and easy installation thanks to the dedicated mounting holes and integrated heatsink for power dissipation.
SmartAP AIRLink's Core edition is intended for medium to high volume production and deep integration with customer's hardware. It weighs only 89 g and can be attached to a metal frame for optimum cooling.
4xM3 mounting holes
Front-facing FPV camera included in the set
