KT said on Oct. 26 that it has demonstrated an unmanned airship using 5G technology at the ongoing India Mobile Congress.

The airship, dubbed Skyship, is equipped with 5G customer premises equipment made by Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics and an advanced high-resolution camera that can shoot 360-degree photos and videos, KT said.


The filmed videos were sent through KT’s 5G network in real-time to a large monitor at Samsung’s booth at the IMC 2018 in New Delhi.

“The Skyship platform is KT’s distinct solution that integrates the company’s network infrastructure and ICT technology,” said Oh Seong-mok, president of the network business at KT. “KT plans to expand the application of Skyship to different areas.”

In June, KT utilized Skyship with an emergency network service platform for search and rescue operations. Once the airship picks up a signal from a survivor, the platform deploys smaller drones that deliver emergency kits and supplies before rescue personnel can be dispatched.
