Drones can deliver many different things, from online purchases to crucial medical equipment. Although we might not see drones flying above us as we go about our daily business just yet, they are here to stay. With new EU legislation requiring remote identification of drones, innovative solutions are needed to comply with these laws. Dronetag offers one such solution! Their IoT device attaches to the drone and uses satellite data to identify and manage flights.
This device is called Dronetag Mini. It attaches to your drone and receives data from GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and EGNOS satellites. That data is then sent to around via Bluetooth or to their cloud platform via cellular network. Dronetag has also created an app where you can create your flight path, have it approved by local authorities and keep a flight journal. You can even connect to other air traffic systems, eliminating the long wait time for flying in restricted areas.
Dronetag is compatible with every drone and uses the most modern IoT cellular networks along with Bluetooth 5 technology. The combination of Galileo with other satellite technologies creates a solution you can depend on. Dronetag comes with an open-sourced interface that enables new external connection possibilities, such as sensors and flight controllers.
The Dronetag team formed in 2018 during a space technology hackathon. After their big win, Dronetag was officially created. Founders Lukas and Marian are big drone fans – the driving force behind their start-up. Their goal is to create a safe and efficient way of managing drone traffic in the European airspace. The wider team consists of experts in aviation, IT, and electrical engineering. The majority also have a plethora of experience with Galileo and IoT. Dronetag makes drones smarter, safer, and more connected.
