Subsidiary of skeyes, the Belgian air traffic controller for manned flights, SkeyDrone has entered into a strategic and commercial partnership with leading technology companies Unifly and Senhive in response to growing demand for deploying drones for various applications.
This closer cooperation between the three organisations has not come out of the blue, says the SkeyDrone press release. They have already been working together in a European context for some time. SkeyDrone and Unifly play a prominent role in various European projects and demonstrations on U-space. It goes without saying that this cooperation will be intensified to speed up the integration and development of their respective software platforms within the Belgian U-space framework. Also, with Senhive, several ambitious studies and projects on drone detection and protection against drones (C-UAV) are ongoing, both in a Belgian and European context.
Skeydrone aims to be a major provider of information services for drone operators and authorities. Through the partnership with Unifly and Senhive, SkeyDrone completes its initial product range of flight authorisation software with fully-fledged solutions in the field of UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) and drone detection. SkeyDrone will market these integrated solutions in the Benelux and France in a first phase.
Hendrik-Jan Van Der Gucht, SkeyDrone Managing Director: “This collaboration is unique in its conception and brings together three leading Belgian parties with complementary products and unique competences. Through this collaboration we become the first complete service provider in the Belgian drone landscape.”
Thomas Petracca, Senhive CEO: “This partnership allows Senhive to offer an end-to-end solution to our customers. While Senhive focuses on providing drone detection hardware (radar, spectrum analysis, communication systems …), Unifly and SkeyDrone’s products allow us to grow further in the European and American markets.”
