One of the interesting capabilities is that the “brain” also includes support for LTE. We at SWYFT support LTE communications for our flight-camera eyeFLIGHT. We are waiting for the industry to follow and add LTE support for drones’ remote control and video transmission. Qualcomm, an LTE industry leader, also supports LTE on its drone brains. It is also involved with AT&T and other large cellular network providers in the development of a nation-wide cellular network for drones.
