Flightradar24 and Skysense join forces to make drones visible

Flightradar24, the world’s leading flight tracking service, and Skysense (www.skysense.io), provider of innovative safety solutions for drones, join forces to make drones visible using same technology (ADSB) as adopted by civilian aircraft.

As part of the agreement Flightradar24 makes a substantial investment in Skysense. The capital will be used to pursue its product roadmap based on ADS-B technology. BCON is a groundbreaking ADS-B OUT device with a unique combination of characteristics to meet the inherent needs of small UAVs. BCON¹ is to date the lightest, smallest and most efficient ADS-B OUT (1090ES) device on the market. BCON¹ will be followed with products supporting Mode S and ADS-B IN.

Henrik Vilselius, chairman and co-founder of Skysense says “To make drones visible and be able to track them, is an important enabler for making drones part of the new disruptive transportation infrastructure and safely co-exist with traditional civilian air carriers. We are delighted to have started this journey together with Flightradar24.”

“I’m very excited to work with the Skysense team on cutting-edge hardware that will revolutionize the drone industry”, says Fredrik Lindahl, CEO at Flightradar24.
