Sky-Drones partners with Altitude Angel and integrates airspace services in SmartAP GCS

Sky-Drones – the leading UAV flight control system solutions expert partnered with Altitude Angel – aviation technology company who creates global-scale solutions that enable safe integration and use of fully autonomous drones into global airspace. Sky-Drones creates professional UAV flight control systems including autopilot hardware, onboard software, ground control software and cloud services. The company brings technology to help its global customers building and operating commercial drones for security, inspections, mapping and media production.

“At Sky-Drones we highly appreciate, prioritize and always strive to enhance the safety of drone operations”, – says Kirill Shilov, CEO of Sky-Drones. An exponentially growing number of drones and more complex missions require reliable airspace regulator which will allow bringing drone operations at an even higher level. Altitude Angel is a trusted advisor to regulatory groups and national aviation authorities, working in partnership with key stakeholders to manage new legislative and regulatory issues. These are one of the key reasons why Sky-Drones has chosen Altitude Angel as a strategic partner on its way of unmanned aerial vehicles integration into controlled airspace.

SmartAP GCS is mission planning and control software by Sky-Drones. The application is available for any platforms and operating systems which makes it versatile and flexible. Recently the company has finished the first step of Altitude Angel services integrated into the app. Now and onwards SmartAP users are able to see airspace and ground hazard data which will make their decisions on flight location selection and mission scenarios more aware and adequate. It’s a major milestone towards incorporating BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight) drone operations on a regular basis which will eventually lead to the new business opportunities of UAV applications. The next step is an implementation of automated in-app airspace authorization request based on the pre-planned mission. This would mean that Sky-Drones customers will get an opportunity among the first worldwide to be able to fly in controlled airspace without the need to switch between control and authorization apps.
