Drone Evolution displayed Skywire, a universal tethering solution for rotary UAVs, at DSEI 2019 in London. (Drone Evolution) Launched on 10 September, the Skywire ground station connects to a mobile power supply unit and distributes power from the ground to the UAV, while also distributing data from the elevated UAV to the attached ground receiver using a fibre-optic cable. Clayton Earney, operations director at Drone Evolution, told Jane’s that Skywire “enables a flight duration of up to six hours at an altitude of up to 200 m, depending on the payload capacity of the attached [UAV]. “Skywire has been tested on a wide range of commercial systems, including the DJI Phantom UAV series,” he added. Skywire enables the user to deploy a sensor-equipped UAV to enhance situation awareness and enables overwatch and force protection capabilities for up to six hours, removing the need to recharge or swap onboard UAV batteries. It also includes a backup battery capability that enables the attached UAV to land safely in the event of a power failure. The Skywire ground station comprises a universal power supply, tethering cable to distribute power, and an optional fibre-optic cable to transmit data from the UAV to the ground station.
