Title: SYSTEM FOR EMPLOYING CELLULAR TELEPHONE NETWORKS TO OPERATE, CONTROL AND COMMUNICATE WITH UNMANNDED AERIAL VEHICLES AND REMOTE PILOTED VEHICLES
Abstract:
A cellular type communications system for cellular telephone networks to operate, control and communicate with unmanned aerial vehicles and remote piloted vehicles, the system including a first near-ground region to communicate with devices near the ground, as well as one or more layers covering roughly the same areal extent as the ground region but which are separated from each other and also elevated above ground substantially, and within which an aerial vehicle may rely on communications using the cell-based communications network.
