Robotic Skies Partners with SqwaQ to Advance Commercial Drone Operations BVLOS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.– Robotic Skies Inc, the first and only global MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) network for commercial UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems), and SqwaQ, a global SD-WAN network company offering a powerful new redundant comm-link that enables drones to fly unlimited-range BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight), have signed an agreement that grants the Robotic Skies Service Center network access to distribute, retrofit, and provide field MRO services for SqwaQ communications equipment.

SqwaQ’s patented, postcard-sized communications modem aggregates the bandwidth of up to twelve individual 3G/4G/LTE connections. This powerful multi-redundant, massive throughput enables reliable drone command and control nationwide, with simultaneous streaming of pilot view cameras, as well as downward facing cameras and sensors.

Supporting live FPV (First-Person View) camera streaming nationwide, the SqwaQbox gives remote pilots the enhanced experience of flying with an onboard cockpit perspective, just like in manned aircraft, for increased situational awareness and safety. It can also validate pilot credentials, pre-flight aircraft registration, and FAA flight plan authorizations. SqwaQ can provision these custom data services on over 600 global cellular networks across 130 countries.

“SqwaQ is building the carrier-agnostic network on which all smart aircraft can fly connected up to 5500-feet altitude. Our agreement with Robotic Skies is an important part of this vision,” said Ted Lindsley, CEO of SqwaQ. “As our equipment and services proliferate worldwide, we need front end distribution partners who also have backend MRO service capabilities and an understanding of FAA/EASA/CASA rules and regulations. Robotic Skies has all of these, and we share the same long-range vision of where the industry is going BVLOS.”

SqwaQ’s global, flexible, and secure Mobile Virtual Network Operator solution will empower drones, air taxis, helicopters, and other aircraft to safely share the same airspace, transforming industries like pipeline monitoring, power line inspection, perimeter security, border patrol, e911 emergency response, broadcasting, and more.

“With the SqwaQ partnership, the Robotic Skies Service Center network can further expand services beyond maintenance and repair,” said Brad Hayden, Founder and CEO of Robotic Skies. “This is a great opportunity to help UAS operators evolve with new technology and get more out of their UAS investment by offering an upgrade path to safe BVLOS operations for more complex and demanding mission profiles.”

The SqwaQbox modem can be factory-installed or retrofitted to the existing commercial UAS fleet. Learn more at https://www.sqwaq.com.
