Altitude Angel and Pierce Aerospace, US-based remote identification system supplier, have agreed to form an alliance with the goal to bring automated drone flight a step closer.
Capitalising on the core strengths of the businesses, the partnership will set out to explore the opportunities surrounding the integration of Altitude Angel’s UTM technology and Pierce Aerospace’s Flight Portal ID secure authentication system.
Philip Binks, Altitude Angel’s head of ATM, commented: “Altitude Angel and Pierce Aerospace share many of the same values; innovative, pioneering and determined. Our collaboration with Pierce Aerospace has great potential, not only for our businesses, but also the wider UTM industry.
“The meeting of our two market-leading and cutting-edge technologies will look to help realise and implement safe, automated drone and UAV flight. In addition, the collaboration will give Altitude Angel a further foothold in the North American market and to help Pierce Aerospace gain a foothold in Europe. I’m very much looking forward to working with Aaron and his team to make amazing things happen.”
Aaron Pierce, Pierce Aerospace CEO, added: “Pierce Aerospace is thrilled to be working with Altitude Angel. Integrating our remote ID functionality with Altitude Angel’s GuardianUTM platform can make BVLOS flights an everyday occurrence. Pierce Aerospace and Altitude Angel have all the components needed to make this a very successful collaboration.”
