Late comment: what they're doing is maintenance reporting. The vehicle lands, spots the WiFi signal, sends it's status, and then the maintenance crew knows what knobs to turn / liquids to top up. Key benefit is reducing the number of personnel wandering around near spinning rotors.

Easy to add interlocks so the WiFi kit only comes on when there's weight-on-wheels!
