How to Scale Your Unmanned Fleet With Flexible Networks

When building an unmanned fleet and setting out to begin drone missions that will operate BVLOS, the connectivity solution chosen inside your drone is of critical importance. While there are a number of connectivity options available for both C2 and data transfer, there are several criteria which need to be met in order to fully enable BVLOS operations. These include: high bandwidth, low latency, multiple redundancy, and affordability. Elsight CEO Yoav Amitai will discuss how each of the available connectivity operations match these criteria, offering insights into the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Drones: The Changing Face Of EMS, Battlefields & Homeland Response 

Drones are fundamentally transforming the landscape of warfare and emergency responses. The integration of drones is ushering in extensive and revolutionary solutions within the realms of defense and emergency management. Aerial activities at altitudes of 5000 feet and below are increasingly becoming dominated by drones. With their cost-effectiveness and enhanced capabilities, drones are now accomplishing a wide range of tasks, encompassing surveillance, landmine detection, medical deliveries, and beyond. Drones excel in swift and secure location access, minimizing risks, gathering real-time data, monitoring vital signs, and establishing reliable communications. These examples merely scratch the surface of their potential! As these capabilities align with the growing demand for cost-efficiency and heightened automation to facilitate scalable operations, the future of activities within the airspace domain is poised to undergo a substantial transformation.

Why Innovation in Commercial sUAS Is THE Gamechanger for Defense and Public Safety Sectors

The Pentagon just announced that it intends to buy thousands of inexpensive autonomous systems within the next 18-24 months. According to Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, she says the goal is simple: “small, smart, cheap and many.” How will this be achievable? “With smart people, smart concepts and smart technology, our military will be more nimble, with uplift and urgency from the commercial sector,” she said.  AgEagle Chairman and CEO Barrett Mooney will discuss how innovations borne in the commercial drone manufacturing sector are now being recognized as the critical “ends to the means” to effectively and efficiently scale drone operations for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance applications in the global defense and public safety sectors.
