***For Immediate Release***

MEDIA ALERT

ALTA DEVICES TO EXPLAIN HOW ITS ANYLIGHT™ SOLAR TECHNOLOGY ENHANCES NEW USES FOR UAVS SUCH AS PRECISION AGRICULTURE AND INTERNET SERVICE DELIVERY

Longer Endurance is Critical for These and Many Other UAV Applications

What

Alta Devices will showcase its AnyLight™ Solar Technology and the benefits of using solar power on UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). Use cases of solar powered UAVs in civil and military applications will be presented, along with the potential for positive impact on industry image, utility and overall safety of these systems. A real-world case study will highlight endurance achievements of up to 10 hours on a small fixed-wing UAV designed for anti-poaching surveillance.

Why

Alta Devices makes the most efficient, thinnest, and flexible solar technology in the world and can significantly increase the endurance of unmanned systems. Because of Alta's unique characteristics, it is ideal for embedding onto the skin of an aircraft. A small UAV can now fly as long as there is sunlight, thus changing the utility of these platforms for agriculture, surveillance, inspection, communications, and more. High altitude long endurance UAVs, sometimes referred to as pseudo-satellites, also require solar technology with a high power-to-weight ratio in order to stay airborne for extended periods of time. These sessions will examine recent developments in the solar industry allowing mass deployment in UAV applications.
