Thanks Antoine for the lengthy explanation. The SAS system is for a fixed wing platform (4Hz is initially enough for proof of concept) and I would not worry about going on low level control than the navigational commands initially. Out of all the suggestions the SPI communication with the PC seems to be a better choice since the SPI of our Tiny board is not used for anything now.
I will look for some SPI/USB converters. Chris suggested using the ivy bus on an airborne PC to communicate through the real datalink (serial port) and use a wireless modem connected to the airborne PC (tiny gets data link messages via ivy bus again): that seems to be a good choice too.
