Variable Height Antenna (VHA)
Our all-weather SENTRY is designed to meet IP54 and MIL-STD-810 standards. It operates in extreme conditions and is a force multiplier for mission critical situations. Fielded and maintained by our forces flying Silvus, Trellisware, MPU5, PRC-163, and PRC-161 radios.Contact Us
Built for Radios
Qualified payloads include Silvus, Trellisware, Persistent Systems, L3 Harris, Viasat, goTenna, multiple sensors, cameras, and others.
Power Over Tether
Unlike battery-powered drones, our tethered drones have unmatched power and unlimited flight time for hours, days, and weeks.
Transporting portable drones is efficient and convenient with quick setup for maximum flexibility in stationary or mobile missions.

The Sentry Advantage
Intelligent Automatic Tether System
The tether maintains .8lb of tension with automatic reel system to sustain position of the aircraft relative to the ground station.
LiveSky has fully redundant fail-safe architecture to preserve the system in the event of power interruption or communication loss.
Work seamlessly with existing networks using our open architecture. Our system allows UAVs to be networked with other devices and comprehensively presented to a single source or multiple sources around the globe.
Superior Drone Technology
Hoverfly Technologies is a leading national provider of federal defense drones, security drones, and public safety drones. The SENTRY is designed to meet IP54 and MIL-STD-810 standards and is a military-grade tether-powered UAS ready for any mission. Our tether-powered system provides infinite power and continuous operation. It features enterprises multi-site control with Smart Command software by Hexagon. The SENTRY requires minimal training, and no piloting is needed. It also features a PTZ Hi-Def camera with 10x optical zoom, built-in-lead, flank, follow “on the move” technology.

In the Field
Our tethered drones provide continuous communication with no wire or fiber needed for installation and a mobile ad-hoc network of flying communications 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 industrial, commercial, government, and other specialized applications across the country.
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.
