The First Smart Tethered Ground Control Station for Drones

Safe-T 2 is an industrial smart tether station for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), offering real-time semi-persistent observation and surveillance capabilities thanks to its patented micro-tether. Offering the widest range of compatible drones and payload sensors on the drones market, the system is especially suited for:
  • Persistent Aerial Surveillance (Day and night)
  • Temporary Telecommunications (4G, Wi-Fi, radio)
  • Industrial Inspections
  • Situational Awareness
  • Working with Elistair tethered drone solution – ORION
Designed for the most demanding professional missions, Safe-T 2 has been approved for tethered flight by an official rule-making body; the DGAC (French civil aviation – responsible for drone aviation), and has been successfully deployed by government bodies and industrial companies over 5 continents.

Unlimited Flight Duration

A direct power supply from the ground station through the micro-tether cable provides the drone with unlimited endurance.

Our compact smart Onboard Module replaces your battery, resulting in a continuous, reliable, and secure power source. Connected to the electrical grid or to a generator, Safe-T 2 is in a class of persistent systems designed to run from several hours to several days.

No drone modifications are required, enabling you to switch from tether mode to battery mode in seconds, for greater versatility.

Safe and Connected

Providing a continuous and redundant power supply, secured by a UPS safety battery, the Safe-T micro-tether is armored with kevlar to withstand over 1000 Newtons of traction and provides an unbroken and unjammable data transfer.

Integrated with various sensors, the Safe-T technology is continuously self-checking its status and uses fail-safe procedures in case of anomalies. An embedded WIFI module streams the system status to the Elistair T-Monitor application, allowing the operator to monitor its operations from a tablet or PC.

The system allows for safer missions in complex scenarios, with complete protection of surrounding equipment and people, and has been certified to be in compliance with Civil Aviation laws.

Rugged and Field-Proven

Deployed by end-users since 2014 all over the world, Safe-T 2 is truly field-proven. We have worked hard to make this powerful tool rugged, compact, easy to use, and quick to deploy on the field by a single operator. The system fits easily in standard transportation means. The smart Onboard Module is compact and can fit in the common battery space of your drone. Easy to connect/disconnect, you can switch from free flight to persistent flight in seconds.

Safe-T 2 incorporates a proprietary software, with fine-tuned control laws limiting the impact of the micro-tether on the drone flight and preventing entanglements or wear risks.

This drone station works superbly with the Elistair Tethered UAS known as ORION.
