Commercial operators have two new ways to use AirMap, thanks to our integrations with DroneDeploy and Kongsberg Geospatial’s IRIS display for drone pilots.
AirMap is one of the inaugural apps in the DroneDeploy App Market, which makes third-party apps for flight information, file sharing, 3D map printing, and more available on DroneDeploy’s web and mobile platform. Commercial operators who use AirMap’s free app for DroneDeploy will have information about airspace requirements and advisories at their fingertips to help with flight planning and improve their situational awareness.
We’re thrilled to be part of the App Market’s launch, and make our platform even more accessible to the commercial drone operators and industry entrepreneurs who trust AirMap’s iOS, Android, and Apple Watch apps for reliable airspace information about nearby manned traffic, controlled airspace, microscale weather, and more.
Today, we also announced that AirMap will deliver real-time airspace services to commercial drone operators who use the Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS UAS display – an incredible tool for situational awareness that enables drone flight beyond visual line of sight. (To see IRIS in action, click here).
AirMap’s airspace data – including real-time information about wildfires, nearby airspace requirements, temporary flight restrictions, and other flight-critical events – will be visualized by the IRIS display in 2D and 3D. Operators will also be able to communicate with AirMap’s 125+ partner airports, and obtain digital authorization for flights in controlled airspace.
Kongsberg Geospatial will be sharing a sneak peek at the system and the AirMap integration next week at the UTM Convention in Syracuse, NY, November 7-9. Stop by the Kongsberg Geospatial booth anytime during the convention for a look at the future of drone flight, beyond visual line of sight.
