Commercial drone manufacture K2 Unmanned Systems has announced that is now offering tethered drone solutions for its UAVs.

Drone tethering allows operators to lift flight time restrictions on their technology, and the company says the technology will be useful for first responders, allowing them to survey a scene for as long as necessary.

The Huntington Beach, California, US-based company said of the new technology: “This is a game-changer for industries like first response and private security, whose responsibilities include long-term surveillance and area overwatch. With tethered drone solutions, operators will now have unlimited aerial surveillance for a very cost-effective price.”

K2 said that it partnered with France-based tether manufacturer Elistair to help create the new technology.
