Drone services company STRADAai is collaborating with airborne communications company Dimetor to expand market services in Italy. STRADAai offers a drone data network and a patent pending enterprise drone planning platform as a growing U-space Service Provider (USSP). At the core of STRADAai’s offerings lies the Aloft Air Control Platform, developed by their official partner, Aloft, known UTM platforms and drone technologies. With a strategic collaboration with Dimetor, STRADAai will leverage the AirborneRF software within its Enterprise Drone Planning to provide pilot-drone connectivity by connecting to the telecommunications infrastructure, says the press release.
Once the system strategy is established, the two organizations will offer BVLOS solutions to the drone market in Italy through the development and launch of a new integrated software that will function as a unified solution. The service will be offered to relevant authorities, telecommunications organisations, drone operators and digital infrastructure service providers for drones. Stakeholders of the partnership could be local representatives and actors directly involved in the drone ecosystem in Italy.
The Italian Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) market is estimated to reach EUR1.8 billion by 2030, according to a research study conducted by PwC and presented at the Roma Drone Conference in November 2022. The research showed that, in Italy today, there are five main mission clusters, also known as use cases, that have been identified as key contributors to market expansion: (1) passenger transport, (2) goods transport, (3) image and data acquisition, (4) aerial work and (5) defence.
This is in line with the findings of another study conducted by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which reported that Urban Air Mobility (UAM) services are currently gaining widespread public acceptance in Europe, with Italian cities leading the way. Two of the top ten European cities where the public most accept future drone transport methods are in Italy (Rome and Milan), which aligns the findings of both studies.
The system will feature end-to-end data encryption to support use cases such as industrial inspections, precision agriculture, delivery, law enforcement, security and surveillance, and emergency response.
“By synergizing Dimetor’s capabilities with our Enterprise Drone Planning Solution, we aim to deliver an integrated software system that empowers organizations to seamlessly manage all drone-related processes, from data handling and workflows to resource management and airspace safety. This collaboration marks a significant stride towards providing comprehensive UTM services throughout the EMEA region,” said Giulio Segurini, CEO and Co-founder of STRADAai.
