Unifly has partnered with Terra Drone India to collaborate on drone traffic management in the country.
The agreement will see both firms facilitate the safe integration of unmanned aerial systems into the Indian airspace.
Unifly’s highly-automated air traffic management system will combine flight planning, airspace approval, live tracking of UAS, and dynamic situational awareness to handle a large number of drones.
The combination meets India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the Ministry of Civil Aviation requirements to actualise the Digital Sky Platform.
As an authorised reseller of Unifly’s UTM solutions in India, Terra Drone India will work actively with India’s central and state governments, aviation bodies, and other related authorities to apprise them with Unifly’s solutions and help them develop and improve drone traffic management in India.
Marc Kegelaers, CEO at Unifly, commented: “With the new government policies, the commercial drone market in India is poised to grow significantly. But that would only be possible by regulating the new wave of drones and creating a safe flying environment for all.”
He continued: “Unifly’s Unmanned Traffic Management system can facilitate this process by bringing the world’s best tried and tested technologies to the Indian airspace.”
Terra Drone India’s CEO, Prateek Srivastava, added: “To enable both manned and unmanned aircraft to share the skies safely, India requires a reliable UAS traffic management solution.”
He concluded: “With partnerships in the US, Germany, and Japan, Unifly has already proven that its software and technologies can address the most complex UTM challenges successfully. We are proud to be associated with Unifly as their authorised reseller in India.”
