A strategic partnership between Axon and DroneSense aims to provide public safety agencies with an end-to-end drone software solution, including piloting, administration, evidence management and live streaming, according to a joint press release.
Axon’s Axon Air technology enables public safety operators to connect safely and securely and DroneSense provides platform software designed to support piloting program management and operations. DroneSense will also integrate its offering with Axon’s digital evidence management platform Axon Evidence, and real-time operations hub Axon Respond, to provide agencies with a comprehensive solution to start and operate a drone programme.
This integration will streamline first responder and drone pilot communications — allowing live streaming from the UAS into Axon’s real-time operations platform and digital footage to be stored in Axon’s evidence management platform.
The integrated solution will be available to customers through Axon, branded as Axon Air Powered by DroneSense, in the third quarter of this year. Existing Axon Air customers will have a seamless transition and upgrade to Axon Air Powered by DroneSense.
“As a long-time partner with Axon in developing drone live-streaming and UAS management tools, I am excited about the company’s latest collaboration with DroneSense,” says Lieutenant Chris Miller at Escondido Police Department. “The service provides excellent live streaming with minimal latency, a user-friendly pilot interface and record-keeping tools that are vital in managing a law enforcement unmanned aircraft systems unit. This is another example of Axon’s commitment to use technology to make officers and community members safer.”
