Increased connectivity – increased safety

The possibilities of drone technologies hold significant potential for both industrial and smart-city use. Flights beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) and increased drone control can pave the way for entirely new tasks and operations for drones, turning the vision of a smart future into reality

As it stands, the operational capabilities of drones are limited by the aviation authorities’ safety considerations for flights BVLOS. These constraints are due to the unpredictability of remote drone flight. Yet, at LMT, we believe that by enabling unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to be controlled over the mobile network, it’s possible to gain real-time data on drone activities, thus increased safety for such flights. 

Mobile network infrastructure makes it possible to communicate critical information during BVLOS drone flight, including remote drone identification, uninterrupted command and control link between a UAV and a pilot during the flight. 

Reliable drone tracking and connectivity are essential for safe drone integration into common airspace, enabling drone use in various industries. Energy, agriculture, construction, and logistics are just a few fields that would benefit from drone solutions. Using drones and airspace management solutions in operational and rescue services, actions of heightened risk, and medicine delivery operations holds the capacity to increase society’s safety and health.
