As part of a strategic collaboration exercise, Elsight has rapidly integrated its Halo connectivity platform with a Lockheed Martin Indago 4 Uncrewed Aerial System (UAS) to complete BVLOS (beyond visual line-of-sight) flights with enhanced capabilities.

Elsight’s Halo is a highly reliable and robust communication system. By seamlessly aggregating diverse IP links—public cellular, private cellular, satellite, and SDR radio—the Halo ensures uninterrupted connectivity even in the most challenging environments. 

Elsight, providers of robust and secure connectivity solutions for unmanned systems, state that its Halo connectivity platform provided wider situational awareness and expanded the operational reach during the collaboration trials. 

Whether it’s disaster response, surveillance, or remote inspections, the Indago 4 now operates with unparalleled reliability for continuous connectivity and transmission of video and data to the command-and-control center.

Elsight asserts that the integration of its Halo enhances the Indago 4’s wireless dispersion capabilities for maintaining robust communication links across varying terrains, obstacles, and distances with ensured uninterrupted data flow, such as real-time video feeds or critical telemetry data.

Roee Kashi, Co-founder and CTO of Elsight, commented; “We designed the Halo to provide real-time situational awareness in difficult defense and public safety scenarios.

“Ultimately, field commanders need to make strategic decisions at any moment and should have the widest ‘lens’ possible with all the critical information. Now with our integration, the Indago 4 becomes the ‘eyes’ of any commander and the control center.”
