Drones are becoming increasingly commonplace as a tactical means of reconnaissance and data gathering. Providing huge amounts of information, high-resolution imagery and data with relatively small budgets compared to manned reconnaissance vehicles, drones are now a fundamental part of a military order of battle.

The potential benefits of IEEE 5G mmWave connectivity for use with drones is that it can provide a higher bandwidth than ever possible before, with broadband speeds of 100s of Mbits per second and more, depending on range. The ability to transfer huge amounts of data swiftly means missions can be extended to collate more data over longer periods of time because that data can be transferred quickly and in full.

This use case explores how 5G mmWave connectivity addresses the challenges of deploying drones in a tactical military environment and looks at examples of the solution in action.
