Tethered Drones UPSC NOTE


Tethered Drones

  • A tethered drone is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) tethered to the ground.

  • It consists of a base station on the ground and the drone, which is connected to the station through the tether (cable).

  • The drone can be operated remotely to perform specific tasks.

  • Tethered UAVs are perfect for data capture and telemetry due to the reliability of tethered connections.

  • Tethered drones dramatically reduce technical and human error crashes in flight.

  • Tethered drones provide a secure line of communication between the ground station and the aircraft.

  • It also does not require GPS navigation.

  • Many tethered drones have longer flight times compared to free-flying, battery-operated drones.

  • Due to the restricted movement of a tethered drone, the operator does not need piloting skills and can mainly focus on their tasks.

Why it is in news?

  • The Indian Army has signed contracts for the procurement of 130 tethered drones and 19 tank-driving simulators under Emergency Procurement (EP) and they will be delivered in 12 months. 

  • In the last three years, in the backdrop of the stand-off in Eastern Ladakh, the Army had concluded a series of contracts with Indian start-ups for small drones for surveillance and load-carrying.
