Airspace World: Skypuzzler partners with Unifly to extend BVLOS drone operations

Software technology company Skypuzzler has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with uncrewed traffic management (UTM) company Unifly to solidify their strategic partnership and joint commitment to support the growing use of drones across industries to operate beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). Through innovative collaboration, they aim to further advance UAS Traffic Management (UTM) and unlock Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) possibilities.

Building upon their successful collaboration within the Eureka Network Eurostars project CONDUCT, Unifly and Skypuzzler aim to advance BVLOS drone operations and ensure collision avoidance in the increasingly crowded skies, by combining Unifly’s cutting-edge UTM platform, known for redefining, automating and digitizing traffic management, with Skypuzzler’s expertise in automated tactical drone deconfliction, says the press release.

This integration minimizes the need for manual interpretation and intervention, ensuring smoother operations and reducing the risk of human error. By enabling drones to automatically adjust flight paths and resolve conflicts in real-time, this partnership not only enhances safety, and operational efficiency but also supports the escalating use of drones across industries, thereby unlocking possibilities for UAM and AAM.

By facilitating the seamless use of drones and reducing CO2 emissions, the collaboration contributes to mitigating the environmental impact of transportation and aligns with the European Commission’s drone strategy 2.0 and the European Green Deal, ensuring safer skies and a greener future for urban air mobility.

Andres Van Swalm, CEO and Co-Founder of Unifly said:  “We are proud to announce our partnership with Skypuzzler. Both companies were founded by air traffic controllers, and we share the same passion and vision for shaping the future of automated drones and Urban Air Mobility. This partnership will make flying safer and more efficient, bringing us closer to fully integrating manned and unmanned flights.”
