A safe tethered station.
Prevent Fly Away
A Patented Safety Brake is integrated with the Safe-T 2 to prevent your tethered drone from flying away.
The Safe-T 2 allows you to adapt the maximal tether length, depending on the safety area you need around your drone. This enables mission flexibility, giving you full control of your tether for each specific flight.
This tethered drone station acts as an anchor, retaining the aircraft in case of an emergency.
The Safe-T 2 also integrates Elistair's live flight management system with the T-Monitor mobile app, offering optimal flight control for safer operation.
The Elistair Safe-T 2 is rugged and versatile for adaptability.
Thanks to its modular metallic structure, fastening rails, and compact size, the Safe-T 2 can be integrated into vehicles and fixed structures.
For added flexibility, the Safe-T 2 is agile enough to be deployed by a singer operator.
A Development Toolkit is available for easy integration to your platform.
The micro-tether spool can be swapped quickly and easily, providing an adaptable solution for your mission requirements.
The Safe-T 2 features an innovative winch system which can be changed by the operator to utilise the best tether weight/power for each drone. No longer do you have to compromise, as you can choose the best configuration for the job at hand.
The Elistair Safe-T 2 has an IP54 rating, ensuring it is a rugged and robust solution in difficult conditions.
With its modular metallic structure, the Safe-T 2 is designed to sustain high vibrations and shocks, and has an increased resistance to dust and water, making it a mission-critical and field-proven tethered drone solution.
Unmatched speed and security in data transfer.
Best Performances To Date
The Safe-T 2 features a Dual-Comms option, allowing operators to maximise their missions with the best performances to date.
With the integration of fibre optic and BPL data links in parallel, the micro-tether ensures a data link redundancy for unmatched speed and security in data transfer.
The fibre optic ensures a low latency and high-speed data exchange. This makes the Safe-T 2 the most suitable tethered drone station to meet the requirements of your Telecom and Broadband applications.
Backed up with the BPL data link, the Dual-Comms option is critical for a quiet data transfer during all your missions.

A tethered drone solution can effectively keep your aircraft up in the air 24/7, giving increased endurance over deploying a drone by itself. Because of this extra-long flight time, a tethered drone station is ideal for persistent intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions, as well as high-bandwidth communications. Thanks to the heights that drone tethers afford - with the Elistair Safe-T 2's micro-tether stretching up to 125m - operators are provided with a wide coverage area. A tethered drone solution also enables secure and unjammable communications. As well as providing unlimited flight times, a drone tether also provides the physical security of keeping your drone in place.
Tethered drones are being utilised by major industrial companies and government agencies in more than 60 countries. Tethered drones serve a range of applications, including defence, emergency services, telecommunications, prisons, traffic management, sporting events and festivals, and for humanitarian needs and following major disasters.
