DroneInch, Inc., the industry’s first drone automation software to power the entire drone operations lifecycle, today announced it was named a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Drones and Mobile Robots, 2020 under the Drone Management Platforms category. Gartner defines this category as “drone management platforms refer to software by which organizations manage fleets of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs) – that is, drones. Features include flight planning, waypoint, airspace notification and approval, vehicle registration and identification, staffing, training, and other aspects of fleet management. They can be offered both on a commercial basis to drone users and as outsourced air traffic management to aviation authorities. The air traffic management element is also known as Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management (UTM).”
Aapo Markkanen, senior director and analyst at Gartner, said in the report, “End users and third-party providers that have comparatively large fleets of drones (say, dozens of routinely deployed vehicles) should use drone management platforms to make their operations safer and more efficient.”
DroneInch 3.0 software is a SaaS-based platform that lets organizations plan thousands of flights remotely, operate autonomously while checking for compliance and safety, analyze results using an AI-powered analytics engine, and collaborate across global stakeholders through annotation and task flow creation.
