Security Drones

Enhancing Situational Awareness For All Missions

Maximum Security & Protection

Hoverfly is revolutionizing the security industry for long-duration, small footprint aerial surveillance and secure long-range communications with tethered UAS (tUAS) technology. Power for LiveSky is supplied up the tether from a grid, vehicle, vessel, or generator source, allowing it to fly for an unlimited duration. Persistent flight translates to persistent intelligence, surveillance, targeting, and communications relay functions, while stationary or on-the-move, from vehicles or vessels.

The Hoverfly Advantage

Perimeter Security

Electro-Optical Zoom and Infrared communications payloads are available, extending the outer layer of security and spotting trouble well beyond the physical perimeter.

AMAG Security Partner

Integrate with hundreds of AMAG video management and AMAG Symmetry System partners.

Secure Data

Operates securely with encrypted video over the tether, which means your video and data is safe from being jammed or stolen.

State-of-the-Art Protection

State-of-the-Art Protection

Communications can be enhanced in disaster, emergency, and contingency operations. Since the LiveSky system is mobile, repositionable, and can fly almost any payload, communications and ISR can be delivered when normal functions are not available. With LiveSky, many radios, cameras, cellular, Wi-Fi, and other communication devices can be deployed to high altitudes to deliver or return service to enhance situational awareness.

In The Field

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.

Made in the USA

Our drones are proudly designed, built, and supported in the U.S. Hoverfly has been developing the best Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for government, industrial, commercial, and other specialized applications across the globe.

Seamless SDK Integration

Hoverfly’s Software Development Kit (SDK) allows LiveSky and its sensors to be controlled over various networks or the internet for multiple fused sources in a Common Operating Picture (COP). It also enables seamless integration with existing security and video management systems with libraries for .NET, C++, and more coming soon. Our SDK provides three levels of access to the Hoverfly system: full control, payload-only control, and telemetry monitoring.


Hoverfly Technologies is a leading national provider of federal defense drones, security drones, and public safety drones.
