Autonodyne Partners with Robotic Skies for Autonomous Unmanned Aircraft Systems Maintenance Support

Autonodyne LLC, an aviation engineering firm with expertise in unmanned aerial system and software design and certification, announced its partnership with Robotic Skies, the global maintenance, repair, and overhaul network for commercial unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). The companies will develop field maintenance and other support services for Autonodyne’s mission-critical systems and solutions.

Autonodyne provides the certification platform for on-board mission computers, software, and ground control systems that enable UAS to co-exist with manned operations in the global airspace infrastructure. Autonodyne works with operators of both small (under 55 pounds) and large (over 55 pounds) commercial unmanned and advanced aerial mobility aircraft.

Autonodyne has experience in the certification of more than 75 manned systems with unrestricted flight approval in the National and International Airspace. Autonodyne is now applying that knowledge to the unmanned aerospace market. The company has particular expertise in next-generation aviation software that enables smart automation and autonomous vehicle control.

Robotic Skies, through partnerships with unmanned aircraft manufacturers and existing manned aviation repair stations, provides enterprise UAS fleet operators with local turnkey field service support. The company employs traditional aviation methodology to make UAS flight operations safe, productive, and compliant with regulatory maintenance requirements.

Autonodyne CEO, Steve Jacobson, said: “We are focused on building architectures to support the unrestricted flight of unmanned aircraft in the national airspace. Robotic Skies is an ideal partner in this effort because, in addition to giving us the ability to scale up our customer support program quickly, they understand the nuances of operating in regulated airspace.”

“Our companies share a common background in manned aviation,” said Robotic Skies Founder and CEO, Brad Hayden. “The partnership with Autonodyne is a unique opportunity to combine the experience of our teams and bring the aviation safety mindset and best-practices to advancing autonomous unmanned aviation technology.”
