Technology designed to enable safe BVLOS drone operations

AirborneRF was created to bridge the gap between the Mobile Network Operator domain and aviation domain, automating the data exchange and making BVLOS drone flights safe. Here are just a few of the many ways our technology can help.

Deploy BVLOS drones using existing cellular networks

If you’re a Mobile Network Operator trying to run BVLOS drone operations on an existing LTE network, our software can help.

AirborneRF leverages the capabilities of existing cellular infrastructures to implement efficient, cost-effective BVLOS drone solutions that get results.

Bring new BVLOS opportunities to your enterprise customers

As a mobile network operator, your existing enterprise customers will sooner or later ask for BVLOS drone services to enhance their future business.    

With AirborneRF you can proactively demonstrate the value you can add and the ways you are able to help them.

Extract complimentary data from cellular network

Looking for a fast, efficient way to access critical information from the networks? AirborneRF has got you covered.

In partnership with a Mobile Network Operator, UAV Management System Providers now quickly access connectivity data, ground risk data, redundant UAV geo-position information, and more.

The telecom industry is changing.
Are you ready to adapt?

To ensure future success, Mobile Network Operators need to identify new value added service opportunities on top of just connectivity. One of the best ways to do this is with Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) drone operations and the services around it.

One of the hottest new trends in the industry, BVLOS drone operations are controlled via cellular networks, presenting a significant growth opportunity for Mobile Network Operators. Historically, air traffic management and cellular networks did not need to interact with one another, but the rise in drone deployment has changed that. In 2020, continuous connectivity between the two is essential for UAV flight safety and regulatory compliance. With this change in requirements comes an increased avenue for profits. Like IoT, where cellular networks go beyond connectivity to provide entire asset tracking solutions, MNOs that provide services on BVLOS solutions before the competition will be in a strong position for years to come.

Existing 4G network technology already provides all the ingredients for reliable, off-the-shelf communication for profitable BVLOS drone operations. The upcoming transition to 5G network technology will only solidify this, as 5G networks have been specified for ultra-reliable low latency operation. In other words, Mobile Network Operators have a clear path to provide effective communication for critical airspace safety.

There’s just one catch: Many Mobile Network Operators are not familiar with the aviation industry.

That’s where AirborneRF comes in.
