April 2024 news roundup: from Amsterdam to Singapore

Updated: May 13

April saw High Lander test some exciting new technologies, attend several international conferences and welcome some employees - while in Singapore, authorities began to use our solutions to power their public safety drones. Read on to learn more…

Amsterdam Drone Week 

The team attended Amsterdam Drone Week, one of the biggest UAS conferences in the world. It was an incredible experience. Apart from the invaluable connections made, the team had fun letting visitors from dozens of different countries use Orion to fly a drone in real time from thousands of miles away, and Alon Abelson and Guy Mazor both took to the stage to participate in panel discussions. We’ll definitely be returning next year.   

Test-flying the first 5G drone 

We joined Cando Drones in executing a very special flight. Pelephone, one of Israel’s leading communications companies, recently launched its 5G MAX network, and Cando and High Lander were invited to execute the inaugural flight of a connected drone. 5G is a significant improvement on previous generations of connection, and we were proud to participate in this historic event. 

Public safety in Singapore

The Home Team Science & Technology Agency announced the adoption of Orion for its drone fleet throughout Singapore. HTX is responsible for public safety across the city-state, and it will use Orion to manage a diverse fleet and execute autonomous patrols, rescue operations, reconnaissance, medical deliveries, and more.  

INDI 16: drone-to-drone communication

We were proud to execute a very exciting technical test. Elsight’s Halo solution enables drones to pick up Bluetooth signals directly from other drones, which fills an important data gap by catching drones which may not be UTM-connected. To read more, click here. 

AAM test with ATI

We once again demonstrated our commitment to advanced air mobility by testing another air taxi route with Air Taxi Israel. It was a 30km, low-altitude flight that we used to test Vega’s real-time ADS-B and Remote ID reception - which were successful as usual. 

DRIFTx in Abu Dhabi 

The team travelled to the United Arab Emirates for a conference that brought together decision-makers from around the world to view and discuss the latest in urban mobility technology, on land sea and air. Alon Abelson and Kevin Peer were there to demonstrate our solutions and found it a very fruitful event. 

LAAD in Rio de Janeiro 

High Lander was proud to be represented at the LAAD Defence and Security conference in Rio de Janeiro by Hen Harel, CEO of Ôguen. He was presenting High Lander solutions from the EDGE stage - we’re grateful to EDGE for hosting our representative at the leading security tech conference in the LATAM region.  

New employee: Boaz Daniel 

We’re welcomed Boaz Daniel, our new DevOps Engineer. Boaz has over a decade of systems development experience and he’ll be working on our backend, cloud infrastructure, regulation procedures, security and Kubernetes clusters, amongst other things.

New employee: Gali Aviyam 

Our QA team grew by one thanks to Gali Aviyam. Gali is a talented developer and she’ll be responsible for running thorough checks on our systems and writing automation tests to make our QA processes more efficient.
