The proposed innovations of the LinkStar-AV system have broad applications for both UAS and general aviation and commercial aircraft, near space balloons and satellites. The software architecture is flexible and can also be applied to other NASA based communications systems. The proposed innovations of the LinkStar-AV system have broad applications over a wide range of government, commercial, and research based vehicles - both UAS, general aviation and commercial aircraft. Due to the scope of the proposed effort we will have a wide ranging customer base including commercial UAS developers and fabricators, DARPA, the Navy, AFRL, GE Aviation, Rockwell Collins, Honeywell, NASA, partner subcontractors and the university community. In addition we see the "prosumer" community utilizing the LinkStar-AV technologies due to its added security and range.
