Tethered drones as tactical communication relays

Tethered drones offer extended communication range, improved line-of-sight and can be rapidly deployed for tactical operations.


Reducing ground clutter effects

By placing the antenna at a higher elevation, it reduces the chance of signal interference caused by ground-based obstacles such as buildings, vegetation, or uneven terrain.


Tethered drones vs other equipment

Key differences between tethered drones and other equipment such as aerostats resides in the flexibility, weather tolerance, and intelligence of the tethered UAS.
