A Look At HoverMast Drones

Photo: Sky Sapience

The Sky Sapience drone series, HoverMast, is designed to provide rapid and timely intelligence gathering. The drone is tethered to an automobile or ship, allowing it to gather data continuously without the need for recharging. The tether serves another important purpose. Since the drone is not considered airborne it does not have to follow the control regulations most drones are subjected to.

Hovermast is known for its ability to operate during most all weather conditions, completely autonomous with a low acoustic and visual signature. Typical missions for the drone include border patrol, port security, federal and local law enforcement, anti-terror activities, infrastructure protection, forest fire protection, and disaster control missions.


All commercial drone pilots must possess a Remote Pilot in Command Certificate which can be obtained by passing the FAA Remote Pilot in Command Exam.

Step 1: Pay the $5 fee and register any aircraft that weighs more than 0.55lbs.
Step 2:  Pass the $150 Small UAS Remote Pilot Exam – exam prep is available here.
Step 3: Pass a TSA background check
Step 4: File FAA Form 8710-13
