LTE for drone flight management and situational awareness

A nice LTE based drone solution was shown successfully by Nokia in UAE Drones for Good competition in Dubai. It was so nice that Nokia won the Drones for Good Award in the international category.

Public safety organizations can use LTE networks - also deployable LTE networks - for new applications and solutions such as unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with video cameras. LTE coverage significantly improves the drone flight control capabilities compared to traditional remote control radios. And at the same time LTE provides broadband capacity for multiple live video streams from drones.

It is coming reality that emergency services can use LTE broadband and drones for improved efficiency in firefighting, search & rescue and many other public safety missions. It is important to note that this is possible already now - even before any 3GPP Release 14 mission critical video and robot control features.
