Analysis of LTE Network

Using Nemo Handy (embedded in the IRIS+ body) and the autopilot software of IRIS+, an analysis of Tripolis current LTE network at different altitudes above ground level can be performed. One of the first observations was that the number of LTE base stations available for serving is increased at higher altitudes, as a result the probability of the receiver (Nemo Handy) having better RSRP improves.
