A beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone flight was conducted using the 5G mobile network in the Baltic Sea region at the opening of the 2nd Annual Baltic Sea Region 5G Ecosystem Forum held in Latvia at the end of November. The demonstration flight switched from one base station to another under remote control. The flight took place within the Adazi airport territory, 25 km away from the control point. The tests demonstrated that during the entire duration of the flight, the mobile network strength met 97.6% of the requirements for successful remote drone management.
The test flight formed part of the 5G Techritory Forum and was intended to demonstrate the viability of safe, autonomous drone flight.
