Location intelligence specialist Esri has partnered with Auterion, creator of drones and drone accessories, to bring a new flight planning solution.
Together, the pair have promised to make it easier for government and infrastructure drone users to meet flight regulations in different parts of the world.
Now, security-conscious US organisations will be able to use Site Scan, Esri’s unmanned aerial systems flight planning and processing solution, to plan and execute missions with the trusted and secure Freefly Astro drone, powered by Auterion.
Site Scan for ArcGIS is used by organizations that require drone imagery for visual inspections, site monitoring, asset management, and situational awareness.
It is an all-in-one, cloud-based drone mapping solution for managing fleets and collecting, processing, analysing and sharing data products.
Industries using this solution include architecture, engineering, construction, natural resources, infrastructure, and government.
Core capabilities in Site Scan include scalability, collaboration, time saving, and now enhanced security functionality.
The companies hope this solution will become increasingly useful to pilots as governments in Europe and the US continue to impose restrictions on unmanned aerial vehicles.
“Our expertise in providing an enterprise drone platform based on open-source software enabled us to meet the needs of the US government and governments worldwide,” said Dave Sharpin, CEO, Auterion Government Solutions. “We are very excited to partner with Esri and provide [its] users with our groundbreaking technology.”
