Halo by Elsight redefines unmanned BVLOS connectivity
The Halo connectivity platform has reached significant milestones in 2020, an interview with Elsight’s new CEO, Yoav Amitai
Or Yehuda, Israel – Elsight has been gaining significant traction in 2020, despite the Covid-19 global crisis, and reached over 4,000 operating hours (3,000+ in the air,
1,000+ on the ground) with its signature Halo connectivity solution for unmanned
platforms, moreover, Elsight secured several certifications for Halo allowing it to go
commercial on a global scale. These milestones are a major move for Elsight on its mission to become the standard connectivity solution for all unmanned aerial platforms,
and specifically for those who look to operate BVLOS under regulation ongoing approval.
“Halo is used now, and we envision it being massively used in the future, for BVLOS
operations of UAVs. Either over populated areas, or less populated areas, Halo enables
operations in almost any terrain. We understand that the future of commercially
deploying UAVs, under an ongoing approval of the regulator, requires reliability that is
almost unbreakable, and that is what we are aiming for, assist manufacturers with
scaling their operations with regulatory approvals.” says Yoav Amitai, CEO at Elsight.
This news comes in the wake of many recent initiatives and accomplishments of the company, including:
Running over 15 active POC’s with UAV/Drone companies around the world in over 50 different platforms. Halo is tested for its reliability and bandwidth capabilities for BVLOS flights in the most challenging terrains.
Halo reached an astounding +4,000 hours of operations (3,000+ with aerial unmanned platforms and 1,000+ with ground unmanned platforms)
Halo was certified this year with an FCC and CE certifications allowing it to scale
commercially in Europe and North America
