Involi and AirMap are collaborating to offer a pre-integrated UTM and Air Traffic Awareness solution for safe, efficient, and scalable drone operations.
The companies said they are hoping that the combination of Involi’s low-altitude air traffic data service with AirMap’s drone traffic management platform enables safe, complex, and autonomous drone applications, such as drone delivery, large-scale agriculture support, surveying, mapping, and countless other use cases.
The integrated solution of AirMap and Involi aims to offer a suite of drone management and flight awareness technologies and services for drone pilots, authorities, and enterprise customers.
AirMap’s UTM Platform and USP capabilities enable airspace authorities to deliver safety-critical services to drone operators and other actors operating in low-altitude airspace.
This unique traffic data is gathered through Involi’s network of in-house developed detection devices affixed to cell towers and other existing ground infrastructure.
CTO at AirMap, Andreas Lamprecht, commented: “Through this collaboration, AirMap and Involi offer a comprehensive UTM solution that incorporates real-time data from aircraft operating in low-altitude airspace using ADS-B and other identification technology.”
Adding: “Involi’s airspace data will further enhance situational awareness within the AirMap UTM Platform.”
Involi and AirMap are both partners in Switzerland’s Swiss U-space Implementation (SUSI) framework, which is Switzerland’s drone traffic management network infrastructure.
Involi’s CEP and co-founderm Manu Lubrano said: “It was a natural progression for Involi and AirMap to formalize their ongoing technical integration. We are working toward the common goal of automating drone flights and enabling exciting advanced drone applications that offer tremendous economic potential and represent the future of transportation. Joining forces helps bring this future one step closer.”
