On April 6, UTM company Air Space Drone (ASD), based in Gardanne, France, will launch its FlyBy platform, an intelligent tool to help prepare and manage drone missions, geared towards the needs of drone operators and airspace managers.
Since June 2019, ASD’s FlySafe platform has allowed the Principality of Monaco to identify and track all authorized drone flights, one of the first countries in the world to have real-time control management of unmanned aircraft in its airspace.
With FlyBy, operators list their drones in the FlyBy catalog with all relevant characteristics (weight, equipment, etc.) which will allow them to calculate flight range. “For each mission created, FlyBy lists all the regulatory constraints and aviation information that impact the area of evolution based on the dates of your mission and the flight range you have traced,” says the company in a press release. In in the event of a constraint, the operator can automatically re-route the flight or negotiate with the airspace manager an alternative routing.
“Real-time tracking ASD technologies, integrated with FlyBy, will allow you to follow your mission live and easily share this information. With the Replay Function Using you’ll be able to replay your past flights on the map, their date and time, and the speed and altitude of flight. FlyBy’s personalised support also offers tailor-made support in your files (Manex, SORA, LUC, etc.)”
