Too Long; Didn't Read

Latvian authorities had to shut down the region's airspace for several days after losing an experimental drone mid-flight. Another drone went missing during a military training operation in the country this autumn. Almost none of the drones in use today are connected to a wireless network. With wireless cellular connectivity, the potential of drones increases exponentially, allowing the drone to go much further from the pilot or even fly autonomously. In January 2020, Vodone called for drones to be fitted with SIM cards to give them connectivity to the main drone systems.
