Drone Aviation unveils new «Bolt» coaxial tethered unmanned helicopter

Drone Aviation Introduces “Bolt,” its next generation heavy lift, higher altitude tethered drone designed for persistent missions.

The coaxial helicopter rotor UAS is designed to meet military applications that require access to altitude for surveillance and communications.

The system can operate at altitudes of up to 800ft for 10+ hours at a time in near-silence. Power, HD video and communications are transmitted via the secure tether system.
