Volatus Aerospace and Iris Automation have a entered a partnership to offer Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) drone solutions to global clients seeking to safely unlock the skies above cities and solve logistics challenges in remote and rural areas.
The Iris Automation Casia system uses a proprietary perception engine to visually detect other aircraft and make intelligent decisions about the threat they may pose to the drone. It then works seamlessly to trigger automated manoeuvres to avoid collisions, as well as alerting the pilot in command of the mission.
Volatus has aircraft equipped with Iris Automation’s detect-and-avoid (DAA) system, Casia, to support its training services ranging from BVLOS flight training to waivered operations. The services include BVLOS regulations, detection and tracking methods, sensors, communication as well as geographical and topographical impacts to mission. Risk analysis and mitigation strategies are key to the Volatus SORA preparation training offered. Following the theory portion of training, Volatus provides “in-field” activity where clients work with experienced BVLOS pilots and perform practical exercises, including flight principles, functionality, and controllability in a BVLOS environment.
