Intermap and Lufthansa Systems have signed on to be members of the OneSky Future of Flight programme. The OneSky Future of Flight programme aims to help ecosystem partners like Intermap and Lufthansa successfully navigate the challenges of integrating their technology with air traffic management
solutions. Intermap and Lufthansa will combine their powerful terrain data, including vegetation and buildings, with OneSky’s airspace management system. The integrated technology offers users advanced data and analytics to enhance flight safety, says the joint press release.
Lufthansa Systems and Intermap collaborated to develop Lido Surface Data NEXTView (NEXTView), a high-resolution global terrain dataset designed for the aviation industry. It provides continually updated data by combining Intermap’s industry-leading global surface models with Lufthansa Systems’ global aerodrome database. NEXTView claims to be the only aviation-certified terrain model on the market allowing direct integration into cockpit systems.
Chris Kucera, Co-Founder of OneSky and Head of Partnerships, said, “OneSky is excited to have Intermap and Lufthansa Systems aboard the Future of Flight program. We look forward to working with them to expand Aeronautical Information Management systems to include terrain and urban obstruction data for the emerging low altitude airspace domain.”
“Intermap is excited to participate in the Future of Flight program with OneSky,” said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. “It is a critical time for the UAS industry as safety standards and regulations are being formulated around the world. NEXTView will be central to safe and efficient UAV operations, ensuring the industry is able to expand safely for the public and property owners, while supporting robust business models for operators.”
