Elsight has released a new position paper that outlines why BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) operations, which allow UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) to continue their missions when out of sight of a human observer, will form the future of the drone industry.
The paper covers:
- BVLOS versus LOS (line of sight) and ELOS (extended line of sight) flights
- How BVLOS drones, managed by drone network operation centers, will unlock new UAS applications
- How mobile cellular communications, particularly 5G, will form a key part of the BVLOS drone industry
- The disadvantages of SATCOM and unlicensed RF communications for drone operations
