Elistair Unveils the Safe-T 2, The New Standard for Tethered Drone Stations

Elistair has today announced the release of the Safe-T 2, their most advanced and powerful tethering system for use with commercially available drones. Key Features include, IP54 rating, up to 125m / 400 feet of micro-tether, 2 200 watts max continuous power, a fiber optics option, and industry leading weight/power ratio from its patented Dynamic Voltage Optimization (DVO). The Safe-T 2 provides users with unmatched power efficiency and enables safe and persistent flight time for UAVs.

Since the launch of its first tethering station in 2015, Elistair has quickly become the industry leader in tethered drone systems, with over 600 tethered stations deployed so far to help security forces monitor events, secure sites and protect assets. The Safe-T 2 has been built on the success of the flagship Safe-T product line which has been deployed in over 60 countries by governmental organisations, industrial groups, and security forces. The Safe-T 2 will take tethering operations to a new level.

“To design the Safe-T 2, we worked in close collaboration with our users who challenged us with their critical feedback.  We rethought the entire solution in order to build the perfect tethering system for critical security operations.” Said Timothée PENET, Co-founder and Chief Technical Officer at Elistair. “With up to 2,2 kW max continuous power and 2,8 kW peak power, the Safe-T 2 allows for higher flights with heavier payloads, thus enabling security forces to cover larger areas with a single system.”

Smart and Secured

The secure Dual-Comms option (Fiber optic and BPL), offers a redundant tethered data link, or the possibility to select which technology is best suited for the aircraft and/or payload. A patented Brake system also allows the user to adapt the maximal tether length, depending on the safety zone needed around the aircraft, for instance in urban or crowded environments. Like its predecessor, the Safe-T 2 integrates Elistair’s live flight management system with T-monitor mobile app offering optimal flight control for safer operations.

Ready for integration

Engineered to meet the most demanding missions with its rugged weather-resistant design, and compact modular metallic structure, the Safe-T 2 offers mounting plates and optional software development kit (SDK) for seamless integration into vehicles and fixed structures whilst also being agile enough for a single operator to deploy. Its interchangeable micro-tethers and smart adaptive winch control laws, allow the operator to reconfigure the station and use the best tether weight/power range for each drone.
