Additional Microhard settings in AMC

The "Pair Vehicle" button in AMC will typically allow the user to pair the Skynav radio to an air vehicle. Detailed instructions for pairing in AMC can be found in our Microhard guide.

AMC also has the ability to change additional Microhard settings. These are found in the "Settings" > "Microhard" menu as shown below.

For AMC to utilize the Skynav Microhard radio, several fields will be filled out appropriately. If these settings are correct, AMC will list the Ground Unit in green as "Connected". The settings required for AMC to recognize the Microhard are:

  • Local IP Address (default "")

  • Configuration User Name (default "admin")

  • Configuration Password (default "microhard", and "auterionfct" after loading the auterion configuration)

If your Skynav unit was shipped with an alternate configuration, this information will be listed in the supplied shipping documents.

The remainder of the radio settings on this page will be applied to the radio connection when in-use. Note that when AMC is in "Pairing Mode", the settings shown above will be overridden with those specified in the pairing menu if they are different, including Encryption Key, Network ID, and Pairing Channel.
