The Antares features a module for cellular data connectivity. Through this module, both the user and the manufacturer can access the electronic system of Antares. In addition, the aircraft can independently send messages to the user and the manufacturer.
Communication via SMS messages
Communication via SMS messages offers enormous advantages when initiating and monitoring charging processes. By means of an SMS message, the user can remotely start and stop the charging process or set individual parameters and is then regularly informed about the status of the battery system. Furthermore, the manufacturer can read the fault memory and logger data for the battery system. This enables fault diagnosis or remote maintenance without having to transport the aircraft to a suitable facility. By developing these functions in-house, it was possible to implement a very high level of data integrity. Software updates can be performed via a remote access kit (over the air updates). Since its introduction, our remote data access system has proven its worth and it is constantly being developed further.
