In the last few years, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, experienced a fast-paced adoption increase, reaching ~900M FAA-registered drones in February 2021. Current solutions for drone control are based on satellite connections, which have high costs, or mobile networks modem-based products, which suffer from limited range, frequent interruptions, and capacity overloads and make them not suitable Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) applications hindering their large-scale commercialization.

Voltela Inc. is developing VolTech, the first software solution for drone connectivity that provides a new level of safety-critical drone communication using the existing mobile network.
