Likeabird joins Inmarsat’s Velaris partner network, adds systems integration capabilities

Inmarsat has welcomed LikeAbird – a specialist in UAV and robotics – as the latest company to join its Velaris Partner Network. LikeAbird will soon integrate with Inmarsat’s core miniaturised satcom terminal technology, with a first release expected in early 2023. In addition, it will become an official airtime provider for Inmarsat’s Velaris service.

As the first systems integrator, LikeAbird will meet the evolving needs of customers across a range of UAV markets by integrating Inmarsat’s Velaris connectivity service with its existing solutions. These include flight controllers, autopilots, and beyAIR-MCG (Modular Communication Gateway). BeyAIR-MCG combines short to medium-range radio and redundant cellular datalinks with satcom. This removes the need to have additional terminals onboard, leading to benefits like cost savings and reductions in hardware size, weight and power consumption.

Inmarsat’s Velaris Partner Network is an ecosystem of leading companies, all dedicated to innovations to facilitate safe and secure UAV operations, and realise the industry’s full potential. It utilises Inmarsat’s Velaris global connectivity solution,

The Uncrewed Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market is evolving rapidly and anticipated to grow at a 57% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) from 2021 to 2028. A diverse range of technology companies including likeAbird are currently aiming to keep pace with soaring demand – and enable the future of everything from flying taxis to oil and gas survey vehicles.
