AirMap’s UTM services have been selected by TopXGun to be integrated into the company’s autopilot systems for drones.
TopXGun, a provider of the flying control system and unmanned vehicle industrial solutions, supports professionals from within the aerial photography, agriculture, logistics, surveying, mapping, and security sectors, among others.
The AirMap Developer Platform equips developers and drone manufacturers (OEMs) with easy-to-use APIs and SDKs for safe and intelligent drone flight. Services include global geo-awareness, flight planning, compliance briefings, digital airspace authorisation, real-time alerts for manned and unmanned traffic nearby, and positioning date with real-time telemetry.
The integration of AirMap airspace services into the TopXGun autopilot system will enable TopXGun customers to anywhere in the world.
“AirMap is the pioneer and industry leader in UTM, with excellent products and strong R&D support,” said Francesco Zhang, vice president at Shanghai TopXGun Robotics Co.
“Through our partnership, we are able to bring even more value to companies using drones for plant protection, surveillance, mapping, inspection, delivery and emergency services.”
Ben Marcus, AirMap’s co-founder and chairman, added: “Every day TopXGun customers are engaged in mission-critical operations,” said “Now those flights will be safer and more compliant, supporting the rapid growth of the drone economy worldwide.”
AirMap is also working to deliver a Europe-wide UTM system. SkyGuide and AirMap are in a prime position to deliver their drone management system across Europe, following the completion of a successful, nationwide test.
Last month SkyGuide, the Swiss air navigation service provider, and AirMap demonstrated their Swiss U-space services nationwide in Switzerland.
