SkyGrid, a Boeing, SparkCognition company recently launched a new application for drone operators and enterprises to automate every phase of flight in one unified solution. The app is now available for free on the iPad App Store.
SkyGrid Flight Control™ simplifies mission planning and execution, allowing drone operators to autonomously surveil a bounded area and detect objects in real-time. The solution enables more efficient search and rescue missions, disaster response, perimeter surveillance, site inspections, and more and is powered by artificial intelligence (AI) computer vision.
Amir Husain, CEO and founder of SkyGrid mentioned in the press release that traditionally, drone operators have used several different tools to check airspace, get LAANC, plan and execute flights, and gather insights, but it’s a manual, cumbersome process. Recognizing this challenge, SkyGrid has minimized the burden on drone operators by developing one solution that automates airspace, flights, and insights. As the only drone solution built on AI and blockchain technologies, they give operators and enterprises the assurances they need to execute safe, compliant missions.
SkyGrid Flight Control enables drone operators to automate airspace authorization, mission planning, flight execution, and object detection in one end-to-end solution and is powered by SkyGrid’s AerialOS™.
Steve Nordlund, vice president and general manager of Being NeXt and executive board advisor of SkyGrid said that SkyGrid Flight Control is an important stepping-stone to unlock more complex commercial drone operations and introduce advanced air mobility in urban, regional, and global markets. He added that SkyGrid is solving complex problems in unmanned aviation with a system that will safely integrate the future volume of drones, passenger air vehicles, and other autonomous aircraft in the global airspace.
