Droniq and Sky Drone team up on long-range drone flights mission


Droniq and Sky Drone have entered into a strategic partnership to enable BVLOS flights of industrial, commercial and governmental use.

The partnership aims to allow Droniq to use Sky Drone’s unique technology for controlling UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) remotely in real-time and without any limitation in range.

Based on this technology, Droniq will offer a complete hardware package for locating, controlling and transmitting data of drones during BVLOS flights.

Commenting, Ralph Schepp, COO of Droniq said: “Sky Drone perfectly complements the UTM approach of Droniq and is an essential building block for making BVLOS flights reality.”

Adding: “We’ve seen the technology being used at several of our customers in Germany and are absolutely convinced of Sky Drone’s technology and their pragmatic mentality.”

As an exclusive partner of Sky Drone in Germany, Droniq is now able to provide real-time communication for drones during their flights.

By using the 4G/LTE network of Deutsche Telekom, real-time command and control, video, sensor and telemetry data can be transferred with low latency from the drone to the ground control station and vice versa.

This technology complements Droniq’s LTE-tracking module “HOD4track” (Hook-On-Device), which sends its position every second via the mobile network to the UTM system.

Boris Boege, CEO of Sky Drone explained: “Droniq is the ideal partner for our real-time communication system for drones that’s already being used across the globe. Their reach in Germany and Europe allows the efficient use as well as safe integration of drones into the public airspace.”
