By flying multiple drones with mobile relay station functions in areas where mobile phone signals do not reach, such as disaster sites, the “moving communication relay station system” enables reliable mobile phone communication as if under normal circumstances. By combining Blue innovation’s system platform technology such as Blue Earth Platform, which enables remote control of several drones, with Kyocera’s wireless communication technology developed through its communication equipment business, the companies will develop a moving drone-enabled communication relay station.

Samples of these devices will be on display at the Blue innovation booth during CES 2020 in Las Vegas from January 7-10, 2020 (LVCC, South Hall 2 #26820). The companies will begin field testing under LTE and 5G networks, aiming toward commercialization by March 2022 in accordance with legislative amendments.
