Tip

The ArduPilot Developer Ecosystem is Evolving! Find out more here …

The AntennaTracker Project delivers firmware which allows you to use a supported flight controller board (Pixhawk, APM2, etc.) as the controller for an Antenna Tracker.

The tracker calculates the position of a remote vehicle using its own GPS position and GPS telemetry from a vehicle running Copter, Rover or Plane. It then uses this information to aim a directional antenna at the vehicle.

Using a correctly aligned directional antenna significantly improves the range over which signals can be both sent and received from a ground station.
