Unlimited Aerial Observation Services Tethered Drone

We continuously monitor areas and collect data for hours.

Using professional Tethered Drone equipment, operated by highly skilled and experienced Remote Pilots, we provide a continuous real-time aerial video stream, allowing constant data monitoring, collection and analysis, anywhere, anytime across Australia.

As a highly experienced drone operator, we understand the benefits and flexibility that drones bring to a wide range of applications and industries.

There are however limitations due to flight times, battery logistics and safety issues when flying in certain locations.

Altitude Imaging’s Tethered Drone Services introduces a new capability that enables unlimited flight times using highly capable drones that are powered from the ground using a ultra-light incredibly strong tether cable.

This permits continuous and uninterrupted operation without the need for landings and battery changes, providing a level of safety that is unmatched by free flight drones.

Tethered drone services are ideal for observation and security and drone operations in sensitive areas like main roads, airports, ports, concerts, and sporting events.
