Tether-based systems for aerial platforms deliver a number of advantages:
Drone Aviation was formed in April 2014 from the acquisition of Lighter Than Air Systems Corp. (LTAS), founded in 2009. The development of tethered drones started with LTAS in late 2009 as a potential aerostat system replacement. Drone Aviation Corp. (DAC) is focused on global agencies and organizations in the commercial, military, research and law enforcement sectors. Customers include the US Army, US Marines, US Navy, US EPA, NREL, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Ecuadorian Air Force, many US research universities and US law enforcement agencies.
Taming Altitude is Drone Aviation’s approach to unmanned systems design, manufacturing and flight operations. Combining engineering, human factors-based design, software, and safety systems to provide a reliable, easy to deploy system.
DAC’s goal is to lead the UAS industry from the equivalent of the pioneering days of manned flight, to the daily airline operations of modern times.
Drone Aviation’s technology and UAS solutions are based on manned system aeronautical engineering, and licensed pilot training and experience. Further, through our experience manufacturing and supporting systems in use by the DoD, Drone Aviation will help the industry mature for wider use in the National Air Space.
People, Processes, Technology and Products
The DAC team has a broad range of skill sets and experience. From scientists to engineers to former military personnel. They are our strength, source of innovation and make Drone Aviation a world-class UAS company.
Drone Aviation is built on an organization, LTAS Corp., that has 6 years of experience engineering, manufacturing and supporting aerostat systems in the field. Systems that are mission-critical to US Army Soldiers and US Marines for communications and force protection. DAC has internal systems and processes such as; change management, engineering test and evaluation, separation of development, test and production software environments, departmental structures specific to production, R&D, engineering, documentation, and support. Drone Aviation’s processes and procedures are what you need and expect in a technology partner that provides UAS systems. Startups and new entrants to the industry may not have the maturity to support your mission.
Drone Aviation is leading the UAS community in numerous unmanned technologies. On-board power systems weighing less than 3 lbs. yet delivering 150 amps of current, automatic tether tension control system, armored tether, data over the same two wires carrying the power, simplified Ground Control Station, highly-stabilized, all-weather dual sensor ISR payloads with human detection ranges of 3km. All incorporated into a low-cost and highly reliable system.
DAC products range from aerostats to tethered UAS systems, with technical commonality across most sub-systems. This approach provides a logistically light capability to customers starting with one DAC platform and later incorporating another into their concept of operations.
