A Belgian drone and technology builder has taken off with a new drone-based platform to connect UAV pilots.
DroneMatrix has launched it Drone-as-a-Service platform “DroaS” as part of its mission to lay the foundation stone for a new shared ecosystem. After years of experience in research and manufacture of drone devices, this DroaS platform is designed to be the glue that will connect companies and authorities with pilots and equipment.
The platform offers an online management environment where the flight applicant and operator can consult their drone flight, hardware, regulations, planning, certificates as well as the results of the flights.
In full compliance with Belgian legislation, companies can now request 24/24 and 7/7 drone services with real-time image processing and integration.
DroaS has come to reduce the great restraint in the market against drone integration within the day-to-day operational business. Since most of the businesses only need a drone solution at specific times, there was a need for a platform such as DroaS. With DroaS, the investment for these companies is limited to the times where a solution is required.
CEO, Frank Vanwelkenhuyzen, said: “Every company can now request drone services via DroneMatrix’s online DroaS platform and view the results in real time or afterwards. It is pre-eminently the most efficient and cost-effective drone platform that companies can use to request drone services. Safe, progressive, cost effective, easy to use and robust, the platform takes a lot of worries away from companies that want to deploy drones.”
In Belgium more than 60 independent pilots are now connected to DroaS and carry out both short and long-term assignments at various companies and government departments.
