Elevating Public Safety

Hoverfly specializes in delivering cutting-edge tethered drone solutions tailored to the unique needs of public safety agencies. We utilize systems that have been tried and tested by our nation’s best and brightest. Our team of experts combines years of experience in drone technology with a deep understanding of public safety requirements to provide reliable, innovative, and scalable solutions.

Our system elevates disaster, emergency, and contingency operations – Hoverfly Tethered UAS is mobile, repositionable, and can fly almost any payload, meaning that communications can be delivered when normal functions are not available.

Video streams from the Hoverfly network are shared among the response and command team, so everyone has instant high-ground visibility to improve incident response. Manpower can be alleviated from simple surveillance and redirected to manned security responses, while Hoverfly maintains an uninterrupted eye in the sky.

Transform your approach to public safety with Hoverfly tethered drones. Gain unparalleled situational awareness, enhance response capabilities, and ensure the safety and security of communities and events with our advanced aerial solutions.

Who We Are

Hoverfly Technologies is the leader in tether-powered aerial drone systems. Over time, we have evolved from creating flight controllers to designing and providing industry leading tethered drones for defense, communication, and security solutions.

About Us Capabilities


Our tethered drones are fielded by branches of the Armed Forces and industry partners to provide a mobile ad-hoc network of flying communications or ISR nodes.


Our drones are proudly designed, built, and supported in the U.S. Hoverfly has been developing the best drones for government, security, commercial, and other specialized applications across the globe.

Public Safety Drone Applications

Hoverfly public safety drones have a myriad of applications within law enforcement, security, and first responder deployments.

  • Event security with location security services
  • Crowd monitoring with local police
  • Rally/Speech surveillance with security services
  • Communication extension for first responders during disaster relief
  • Communication extension for lawn enforcement agencies during tactical barricade scenarios

A View From Above

Hoverfly Tethered UAS offers a revolutionary approach to surveillance, monitoring, and response, providing unprecedented access and agility in critical situations. With a maneuverable and persistent camera at 200 feet, security can now view an event in its entirety – the full venue for the entire event. Our cutting-edge tethered drone solution elevates public safety to new heights.


Hoverfly tethered-UAS improves overall security coverage and enhances first-responders to act with precision and speed.

Unmatched Situational Awareness

Hoverfly tethered-UAS can remain airborne for extended periods, offering uninterrupted surveillance of events, crowded areas, or emergency situations. Real-time footage and data can be streamed to command centers or mobile devices, empowering authorities to monitor crowds, traffic, and incidents with unparalleled clarity and actionable insights.

Stability & Reliability

Unlike traditional free-flying drones with strict battery limitations, Hoverfly federal defense drones have essentially limitless flight time which generates a safer and more efficient resource allocation. Continuous power via ground or generators ensures stable and reliable operation for hours on end, even in challenging weather conditions.

Heightened Security

Equipped with high-definition daylight and infrared cameras, our drones provide unmatched visibility, enabling authorities to detect, identify, and respond to potential threats swiftly.

Elevated Communication

For disaster relief, wildfire support, and other emergency responses, Hoverfly public safety drones can provide a mobile network node via a radio payload. At 200 feet, this radio provides first responders with a reliable and persistent communication network to rapidly respond to situations and remain connected.

Autonomy & Simplicity

Our security drones are equipped with autonomous flight controls and self-monitoring capabilities, meaning operators do not require intense training to use the system.

Painless Integrations

Hoverfly tethered drones include an open API and simple SDK that make it easy to integrate Hoverfly systems and data outputs into existing security and video.

Our drones operate with a small aerial footprint and are barely noticeable, especially at 200 ft.

Hoverfly drones are equipped with several self-monitoring capabilities but the same general dangers that are present for other aerial platforms are present for Hoverfly: potential crashes, hazardous weather conditions, and user error.

Our tethered drones are known for their intuitive and simple user interface. Our comprehensive training program can be completed in several days to equip operators with the knowledge necessary to pilot Hoverfly systems and successfully complete missions.
