UAS Communications System Improvement Through Proper RF Filtering
By NuWaves Engineering

RF filtering is a key component of any communications system to eliminate interference and out-of-band emissions. With proper filtering, multiple communications systems can be employed on a single platform, with little to no degradation in performance. This application note covers the use of RF filters to improve the performance of a communications system, with examples of RF filtering solutions for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
