New UAV Tether Module Enables Unlimited Flight Times

RS100 w/DroneBlue Vigil has introduced a new air module that will enable DJI M300 aircraft to be powered by Blue Vigil’s RS1000 drone power tether system allowing unlimited flight time when connected to a power source (generator, household current, battery or vehicle inverter). 

The system comes in both 150ft and 300ft reactive tether lengths to enable a wide-range of tether use cases, and the drone can be quickly and easily detached from the tether to enable unrestricted flight with the same aircraft. 

The original design called for the creation of a higher powered base unit but design breakthroughs allowed Blue Vigil to support the M300 with its current RS1000 models. Therefore, agencies that already have a Blue Vigil system only need to invest in an air module for the M300.

“The M300 will become the new standard for enterprise-class drones for state and local agencies” said Barry Moore, retired law enforcement officer and current public safety UAS consultant, “Blue Vigil allows agencies to add a very robust tether to their fleet at a cost that fits easily with most departmental budgets”.  Blue Vigil CEO, Rob Schumann, added, “We are excited to create an air module that is compatible with our existing tether unit that has proven a reliable investment for 100s of agencies in the US”. 

Made in the USA, the Blue Vigil system is used by customers on six continents for a wide range of applications. The tether system is designed to allow for quick and easy set up with the customer’s commercially available, off-the-shelf drone.
