Drone Evolution can keep a drone in the air for hour with SkyWire, the first tethered drone system that can run directly from vehicle power with no reliance on AC power – giving a huge amount of flexibility. Powering a drone directly from the ground via a tether provides increased Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance over an extended period of time as opposed to 20 minutes or so from most standard drones. It’s IP 67 rating means that it can work in inclement weather. The revolutionary vehicle power supply provides high voltage (100v-500v DC) from a 12v or 24v supply and can be used to power/charge other devices when the drone is not in use. Our lightweight tether allows for increased height (up to 120m) and payload capacity. SkyWire is currently used with the Flir SkyRanger 70, the Yuneec H520 and the Swellpro Splashpro 3 with others in development.
