Delair-Tech Adds 3G Connectivity to UAVsDelair-Tech, a manufacturer of UAVs, and Telefonica Business Solutions, a provider of integrated B2B communication solutions, have signed a unique agreement that allows DT18 and DT26X UAVs to connect to a 3G network.

Using 3G to pilot drones beyond visual line of sight
Using Telefonica’s Smart m2m solution and strategic roaming agreements, Delair-Tech will be able to offer its customers the ability to communicate with their drones regardless of distance and across several countries and territories. This opens up a wealth of new possibilities and perspectives for the use of sUAS in industry. For the first time, a Telefonica 3G SIM card can be embedded into the drone before it is delivered to the customer.

Delair-Tech’s DT18 and DT26X UAVs offer excellent manoeuvrability, autonomy and deliver precise footage, making them particularly suitable for monitoring industrial or natural sites. The additional 3G connectivity will offer enhanced monitoring, allowing customers to carry out operations in difficult terrains and situations, such as steep reliefs and mountainous areas, or over long distances to monitor infrastructure like pipelines or railways.
