Extend Drone Range

Extend Drone Range

It is now possible to extend drone range by automating battery recharging and replacement to make them a practical consideration for commercial and military border patrol, or search and rescue operations.

 

Hovercraft Base Station

The Hov Pod Hover Home Base Station offers an autonomous solution to store, recharge and automatically exchange drone batteries. 12 batteries are stored in the unit, and a robotic operation swaps out tired batteries to replace them with fully recharged batteries. Great for remote surveillance, border patrol and reducing the operational costs associated with helicopters and manned stations. The Hover Home can be mounted on our unmanned or manned hovercraft or other vehicles. 

This new development together with autonomous hovercraft operation can provide continuous remote border patrol. From the control room, the hovercraft can be tasked with following a flight plan determined either by GPS coordinates, or controlled remotely. From the hovercraft, one or multiple drones can operate. As batteries loose power, the drones can return to the base station to swap out tired batteries. The base station will robotically replace the tired battery, with a fully charged battery. Tired batteries are than recharged, powered by the hovercraft engine.
