U-space service provider Skyward has integrated the next generation of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA’s) Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) within its platform. The new capabilities include authorization requests for nighttime drone flights in controlled airspace, as well as refined airspace grids. Skyward users can request automated and near real-time access to controlled airspace for any time of day, as well as higher altitude LAANC authorizations in portions of controlled airspace, according to Unmanned Systems Technology.
In addition to LAANC access to controlled airspace, the Skyward drone operations management platform also includes 3D airspace intelligence, flight planning and logging, personnel and fleet management tools, 2D mapping, 3D modeling, live flight tracking, program insights and a newly-redesigned mobile app.
Skyward is currently one of seven FAA-approved LAANC UAS Service Suppliers providing public services, having completed the technical steps required for the partnership. As an approved LAANC provider, Skyward offers drone pilots fast and easy access to controlled airspace via the Skyward platform. Skyward users can receive a response just seconds after submitting a request.
LAANC is available on the Skyward web platform as well as the Skyward InFlight mobile app for iOS and Android, providing users with the option to request airspace access and view authorization documents in the office or the field.
