Hoverfly Technologies Inc. announced today that it has been issued U.S. Patent No. 11,518,542 from the U.S. Patent Office for the "Landing Structure for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle." Hoverfly has been the leader in the tethered drone industry since its inception, and its unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have evolved year after year.
One of the largest concerns with UAVs has been determining where the system will land when it is commanded to land or power is interrupted. Free-flying drones have the concern of battery running out, but tethered systems operate differently. Because power and data are transmitted through the tether to the aircraft, tethered UAVs can fly persistently for hours, days, or weeks at a time. All the while, there remain questions on where the tethered system will land when commanded. Hoverfly tethered aircraft possess proprietary landing technology that allows the aircraft to land in its landing ring without fail. The patent protects our landing ring technology for the tethered UAV, allowing for takeoff and landing in the defined precision landing nest.
Hoverfly tethered systems first began with a landing platform, but quickly realized that a redesign was necessary. Requirements from end users and discussions with key decision makers challenged Hoverfly to create a much more compact system. The priority was to integrate on to manned and unmanned vehicles or vessels, and the form factor of the tethered platform had to be much smaller. The compact tethered system with the patented landing ring is second to none in terms of size and capability.
Hoverfly tethered UAVs, often referred to as the Variable Height Antenna (VHA), are multi-purpose UAVs with versatile capabilities. They can be found integrated on both manned and unmanned vehicles or vessels in defense, security, and public safety industries across the globe.
Al Ducharme, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, explains, "The driving force of this evolution came from the end users. We wanted to make a more compact system that was easily transportable and able to integrate on a variety of platforms. I'm proud of our engineering team for providing a novel solution to our customer's needs."

Extensiv (formerly 3PL Central) — delivering omnichannel software solutions for warehouse, inventory, and order management — today announced the winners of the Spring 2023 Supply Chain Scholarship. Now in its fourth year, the Extensiv scholarship program supports education for undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in supply chain management, logistics, and operations management programs.
"As 48% of third-party logistics (3PLs) providers cite that finding and retaining qualified workers is their top business challenge, we absolutely need to do more to attract new talent into this industry," said Rachel Trindade, chief marketing officer at Extensiv. "We've created this scholarship to meet that need, to bring fresh ideas, different perspectives, and new voices into the supply chain. This year, Ashley, Noah, and Tess offered strong industry insight and vision balanced with real-world practical applications, which is exactly will drive the future of our industry."
Extensiv, formerly 3PL Central, launched the Supply Chain Scholarship in Fall 2020, and has given more than $14,000 to scholarship winners and finalists. Past winners have focused on topics including how artificial intelligence (AI) can optimize end-to-end documentation, how 5G data transmission can speed the application of augmented reality (AR), and improvements within circular supply chains.
This year's winner is Ashley McMillon, a student pursuing her B.S. in Information Systems and Supply Chain Management at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Ashley's winning essay highlights the potential of AR to transform the supply chain, saying, "Starting with big tech companies such as Google, augmented reality will solve many logistical issues, provide employees with helpful guides and insights into their work, increase efficiency and productivity, and will streamline supply chain processes within logistical channels."
"Thanks to your scholarship, I can continue to excel in university and obtain a degree in Information Systems and Supply Chain Management," said Ashley McMillon, scholarship winner. "I am the first one in my family to attend university, so I will ensure that I make both you and my family proud. It is my goal to remain innovative and creative and continue to push the limits of technology for the betterment of the industry."
Extensiv also extended awards to two runners-up: Noah Walker of Duquesne University and Tess Porter of Arizona State University.
