The product line
Drone Aviation’s WATT line of tethered drones’ leverage multiple years of military flight know-how to offer a system that can be run in a broad range of operational conditions. The main focus of product line is on providing reliable and safe, long survival commercial scrutiny operations via the use of simplified tablet-based controls which administer power, telemetry and data transmitted to and from the aircraft through a Kevlar-armored tether.
If there is need for extended duration functions, power can be supplied from a generator linked to the GPM or vehicles’ power system. Drone Aviation believes that the unique system permits WATT to carry much heavier, military-capable payloads for longer hours, and more safely compared to similar sized battery of free flying drones. They can only support small and consumer-grade camera for short durations.
The management view
Felicia Hess, the CEO of Drone Aviation Holding Corp. stated that the commercial inclination towards drones from almost every sector of the economy from facilities management, construction, broadcast media, agriculture and security to Civil and Federal Government creates a huge potential market for drones that can offer affordable, long hours operation with commercial grade payload features like delivered by WATT products. The company is thrilled to be a part of one of the industry’s largest events.
