Tether Station for Multirotors
The NM& Tether Station permits to power multirotors directly form an on-ground power source, providing unlimited flight time. Tether Station uses an innovative ultralight cable to connect the drone to the base station on the ground so the multirotor has access to a continuous power source during the operation. It is compatible with most multirotor systems, especially with NM& drones.
Increased safety & Better PerformanceUp To 150m High
Thanks to the innovative ultra-thin cable included it is possible to fly tethered multirotor systems up to 150m (500ft) high.Unlimited Flight Time
Tether cable provides continuous power to the drone so it can stay in the air permanently with no endurance limitations.Custom Power Source
Powered from Vehicle power source (12V DC) or the electrical gird (230V AC), for installation on permanent stations.Self Cable Winder
Autonomous system controlled by Veronte Autopilot controls cable release and collection avoiding tangles and cable breaks.Secure Communications
Cable data transmission enables safe data communications avoiding jamming attacks and data piracy & capture at the time it avoids drone location.Video & Data Transmission
High bandwidth Ethernet connection for video and data transmission trough cable, enabling a two way communications channel.Wifi Connection
Embedded WIFI module provides system status information and permits to monitor and control the drone from any PC or Tablet.Any Multirotor
Compatible with most multirotors systems and fully integrated with Veronte Autopilot is the best choice for high endurance flights.
Embedded Veronte Autopilot Technology
Tether Station for multirotor drones includes Veronte Autopilot technology providing advanced system control. Apart from tether release system control, embedded Veronte autopilot monitors embedded sensors (current, temperature, power input…) predicting and detecting system failures and commanding safety procedure activation.
By combining it with a Veronte Autopilot powered drones it is possible to install it in moving platforms. Tether station shares its position with the drone. In this way, the drone will move with the base station. This functionality enables tether installation on moving platforms: cars, boats… to be used as a surveillance system, for lightening, ...
Safer than Drone Systems
Being a leash system, it is more secure than drones. Once defined a safety area with a radius equal to the maximum height configured, and thanks to fibre reinforced cable, it is possible to guarantee that there will be no material or personal damages in the event of an accident.
Veronte Autopilot technology together with sensors on the tether station provides advanced system safety. During the operation, the system is continuously self-checking system status. Once a failure or a deviation is detected it automatically displays an alert to the operator in charge of monitoring and performs a fail-safe procedure.
It is possible to customize fail-safe routines based on data from the onboard Veronte Autopilot unit or from ground side sensors. Being possible to configure the action to be performed depending on the severity of the failure detected.
Tether Station is independent on the multirotor used and the installed payload. In this way it can be used with a wide range of payloads for various applications: cameras, lights, sensors, …
Payload can be powered from the ground power system by using same tether cable used for drone power. It makes possible to customize payload bay and use different payloads that may not be suitable for a standard drone due to high power consumption.
Civil & Military ApplicationsSurveillance
EO / thermal camera installation makes possible to use it for surveillance purposes with real time video broadcast.Datalink Broadcaster
Datalink repeaters can be installed for using the system as a broadcasting station for long range communications.Portable Mast
Versatility on the system and compatibility with any payload makes possible to use it as a portable mast for custom applications.Lightening
By installing lights in the multirotor it is possible to raise lights high in the air to be used as fast response or portable lampposts.Advanced Monitoring Station
Installed on a car or a research vehicle it is possible to raise a camera for increasing range of view in military operations.Convoy Sky-Eye
Installing a sky eye system on military convoys permits early risk detection and ambush avoidance.Impact Control
Onboard cameras permit to monitor impact location for artillery shoots and introduce shooting corrections in the system.Anti-Drone System
In use with drone detectors or jamming systems makes possible to detect and bring down drones trying to fly in restricted areas.Traffic Monitoring
Thanks to the installation of cameras or radar systems, it is possible to have a high observation spot for traffic control.
