We are a team of entrepreneurs and researchers determined to build the future of new airborne services. We combine expertise from various backgrounds and develop innovative technologies to solve the connectivity problem in lower airspace. We aim for low-latency links with 100% reliability. We also aim for 100% in our company: innovation, accountability and professionalism. This is our contribution to a safe reality of drone services.
Broadband wireless communication is the key element of the smartphone revolution and delivered new services into our hands. The next revolution is right in front of us. New aerial services will introduce another dimension to transport and data collection. Safety is key in this industry and reliable connectivity needed. We are committed to build solutions with guaranteed connectivity and create confidence in new services above our heads.
Voltela redefines the standard of aerial connectivity and leverages the prioritized voice channel for reliable communication links. Our proprietary software solution runs on off-the-shelf communication modules and allows us to serve all drone platforms with a highly compact and certified hardware solution at a competitive price point. Voltela’s unique solution will maintain its competitive advantages also with the upcoming 5G infrastructure.
Remote controls have a limited communication range. Solutions based on satellite communication permit global coverage but are expensive to operate and cannot serve urban areas. 4G-LTE is a viable solution but provides only “best effort” connectivity links not suitable for high reliability requirements of UAS applications. 5G will take an unknown number of years for a widespread deployment.
The increasing numbers of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) is causing a safety problem in aviation. UAS operating Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) require a suitable command-and-control connectivity to prevent crashes. These links have to be dependable, ubiquitous and affordable.
Voltela provides guaranteed low-latency connectivity to commercial UAS using the current mobile network. Our service allows UAS operators to reliably control their autonomous long-range UAS and benefit from best-in-class BVLOS connectivity service at an affordable price.
