Unlimited Power, Atlas’ Game-changing Tethered Drones
Innovative drone tech has taken flight at the Paris Air Show this year, with a revolutionary tethered drones from Atlas that touts unlimited flight time. This cutting-edge feature was showcased by the drone start-up founded by Ivan Tolchinsky, which is also known for supplying Ukrainian forces with resilient small drones.
The highlight of Atlas’s presence at the airshow is their AtlasTETHER system. This allows a drone to stay connected to a ground controller, supplying the drone with converted power and enabling it to hover indefinitely. Power can be fed from a regular power socket, generator, or vehicle charger.
Importantly, the tether provides two-way communication, eliminating the need for a radio link. The drone and the ground controller will not emit radio emissions; hence they’re less likely to be spotted and targeted by electronic warfare systems. If the tether power and communication are compromised, the drone is programmed to land safely on its battery…
